I agree with Roger that it doesn’t make pleasant reading but this is mainly because it focuses on Leeds. Although we get a one line mention as being the only other Yorkshire club in the Championship, it makes no reference to our other strengths such as thriving youth rugby and Ladies sections, rapidly developing Academy set up, increasingly successful links with Phoenix and amateur rugby, outstanding facilities, active volunteers and two very generous and supportive main sponsors coupled with numerous smaller sponsors.
If someone will send me a simple idiot’s guide to setting up a link and I will try to do it from my online Times account.
Wow, that is heavy reading. I see why we only got a last minute mention as the article was aimed at all those Yorkshire Clubs, who have had previous top flight experience. When you put them all together it is not nice reading.
It would have been nice if as John says, they had mentioned more on our club, but that I suppose would have diffused the article a bit. That's journalism for you.
Owen Slot is a very astute rugby writer.It is up to Knights with the great squad they are building for next season to show their mettle.The article highlighted the fact that Leeds have deceived their members over the years with ONLY 8 contracted players for next season.There are rumours they will leave Headingley as it costs 400000 pounds a year to be there.
Pity Leeds best back/full back Chris Elder is off to Chinnor. Would have been a great Knight.
Interesting to read in yesterday's Rugby Paper Ryan Burrows stating that Carnegie had been mismanaged for years.He realises too that Coventry may well be a force to be reckoned with given their owner's ambitious plans team wise and facilities wise.

kenner: Just a Question if I may? Why after a season and on to the second can we not get an actual picture of Aaron Carpenter on the players site? Did not someone just take team photos?

Sir Spicious: I fear there are rumours that Aaron may, in fact, be a vampire and as such his image does not reflect in mirrors nor can it be captured in a photo. I should, however, warn you this may be fake news.

funches: How come there's only 3 games this weekend? Is it just scheduling or?

thomasmachin: It would appear that if we are to replace the departing players we had better be quick or all the available players will be signed by Ealing ,Coventry and Cornish Pirates!
Apr 20, 2018 8:14:16 GMT
barbelhunter: What a great re signing that is.

donnyknightsfan: that was absolutely dire today almost from start to finish apart from a spell in the 2nd half when we looked OK. players don't look motivated enough to me. they need a kick up the backside. the next two games v Bedford and Irish look a tough ask now.

rodders: A bit random this one but are any Knights fans travelling to the Jersey game on Friday 1st March flying from East Midlands on the 10.55 flight out. 2 of us are looking for a lift to East Midlands airport unexpectedly. Happy to share costs of travel

donnyknightsfan: after yesterday's showing a new attacking coach and structure is needed ASAP. our attack is really poor. why don't we ever look to create space?. you're not going to beat championship defences by just running straight at them.
