COACHES of opposing rugby league sides are expecting big things from their respective squads on Sunday.

Workington Town coach Chris Thorman said this week that Doncaster RLFC would be "sterner test" than the three match-ups previous.

But he said that Town players would be prepared for the clash.

"We’ll find out where we’re at. I’m not one for getting ahead of ourselves.”

He added that a win may not be vital come September but that the game is an opportunity for Town to test themselves against a top squad.

Workington and Doncaster are both on a strong run of form in League 1. Thorman's pack is unbeaten in its first three games and Doncaster have had just one result go against them, a 44-18 defeat to Keighley Cougars.

Speaking to the club website this week, coach of Doncaster RLFC Richard Horne said: "We’re building, we probably didn’t get the performance in the first half against West Wales but it’s about gearing things up and continuing to improve.

"We finished strongly last week and that sets us up going into the Workington game - we don’t need to be playing perfect rugby now we need to be getting ourselves ready for the back end of the season.

Horne said: "We’re against a team who are in good form, they’ve had some big scores including against North Wales last weekend which is not an easy thing to do.

“They are going to be right up there at the end of the season and we know we have to start better, because if we are slow we will be chasing the game and won’t be able to play the style that we want."

The match will be available to stream on the OuRLeague app.
