Hunslet won both of the previous encounters, defeating the Bears 34-0 on 26 February in the Challenge Cup and 56-24 on 2 July in the league.

Hunslet missed out on a chance of promotion, finishing in 10th position in the Kingstone Press League 1 at the end of the regular season. As the division splits into two for the Super 8s, the Parksiders goal is now to win the League 1 Shield. Fixtures have been announced for the league matches ahead of play offs and a final in October.
