West Bowling head coach Ryan Hunkin says his team must not think about the opposition ahead of Sunday's clash at Workington Town, but pondered whether the weather could be a leveller.

It is expected to be extremely windy off the Cumbrian coast, which could potentially aid what would be an enormous Challenge Cup third round shock.

Asked whether his National Conference League Division One side can realistically win, Hunkin said: "There's always belief within the squad that we can get to the next round. I'd never say it's a free pass and that we just need to go out and 'enjoy the game'.

"There's been good numbers at training this week and competition for places. There could potentially be some new people coming in too.

"We can do more homework on Workington than we did (in the last round) with Sherwood Wolf Hunt but we've just got to stick to our our principles and systems and focus on us being the best we can be.

"The weather could be a good leveller for both teams too, as there's meant to be 80mph winds battering the coast in Cumbria."

Town boss Chris Thorman is not underestimating the visitors' threat. He said: "They were promoted from NCL Division Two as champions last year and they scored the third-most points in English rugby league last year, only behind Toronto and St Helens, so we'll definitely be respectful."
