H&B round off their Sussex Rugby League campaign with a testing trip to Seaford on Saturday April 12.

They have already booked their place away to Kent League runners-up Ashford or Aylesford on April 26 but the league clash provides a final opportunity for players to stake their claim for a starting berth in the match which will determine the fate of their season.

Hamilton said: "There are a number of players playing for places. There is strong competition for places in the back row - we have a number of options there. Players who have had an assured place are now fighting for their place in the side."

H&B enjoyed a comfortable 47-3 friendly success over Hove II last weekend. Paul Sandeman was the star of the show, racking up a remarkable 22 points including a couple of tries.
