Izaac Farrell has switched to the full-back role for Workington Town today as new coach Chris Thorman takes charge for his first game.

Town are at Hunslet in the opening round of the 1895 Cup with players ready to impress their new boss at the South Leeds Stadium this afternoon.

And as the team is switched around, Town have named Caine Barnes and Gordon Maudling in the centres with Perry Singleton on one wing and Scott Rooke on the other.

Fuifui Moimoi will also start the game at loose-forward with Jamie Doran and Carl Forber in the halves and Sean Penkywicz at hooker.

Skipper Ollie Wilkes starts at prop, alongside Tom Curwen, with Stevie Scholey and Danny Tickle in the second row.

New on loan signing Declan O'Donnell is on the bench, alongside Tyler Lancaster, Jonathan Walsh and Andrew Dawson.

Town: Farrell, Rooke, Barnes, Maudling, Singleton, Doran, Forber, Wilkes, Penkywicz, Curwen, Scholey, Tickle, Moimoi. Subs: O'Donnell, Lancaster, Walsh, Dawson.
