BULLS CAPTAIN Steve Crossley is set to miss his first league game of the season at home to Batley on Sunday.

The prop is not named in the 19-man squad to face the Bulldogs due to illness, with the injured Rowan Milnes the other player to step down following last week's Halifax Challenge Cup clash.

Callum Bustin and Jon Magrin come into the squad which includes Ross Peltier, who is poised to make his 100th career appearance.

Milnes is facing a six to eight week lay-off following a successful operation on his broken fibula.
