Happy days, Carnegie 19-40 Knights.
The bonus point win puts us ninth, above Ampthill (at least until Thursday)!
Ampthill must beat Bedford or score two league points to go above us. Bedford can’t go above us, even if they win with a bonus point. IF they scored five points, we’d have equal league points but we would have won three games to their two.
Weren't we rather hoping to be in the top four by around now?
Isleonian - as you are on here regularly you will have noted the "minor" issue of injuries in the squad - that would explain why we aren't in the top 4 or there about. As more of our key players get to fitness you will no doubt see us moving up the table.

Isleonian, sixth-placed Scottish have only won three games, the same as us, however they have drawn one and won three bonus points to our one BP won against Carnegie but they have already played Carnegie.
Even third-placed Coventry have only won four out of seven games, so we’re not way behind.
We're not ganging up on you Isleonian, we just want all supporters to realise that the Knights are not where we wanted to be for a 'good' reason and nowhere near another Carnegie even with all the injuries.

that win on Sunday has made me a lot more confident about the second half of the season. hopefully we can go on a run of results in the new year and climb up into the top 6. looking forward to the next game at home (v Nottingham). that is always one of my favorite games of the year. just a shame we have to wait so long for it!.
martinc: Enjoy your trip to Jersey lads. COYK! COYK! COYK!

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.
Apr 27, 2018 10:38:07 GMT
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.
