The ref must have had a bad day, the offside rule was over looked every time when the pirates kicked off their forwards were in front of the kicker sometimes they were 5 yards in front of him, he missed a lot of neck tackles. That's no distracting from the pirates win our defence was woeful, too many easy run in tries.
I agree back room staff have to get a grip, why was Tyson coming off the wing to cover tackle in the centre. Why do we always kick off towards the stands let's mix it up and confuse the opposition, or would that confuse us
Our kick off and restarts are always too long and give no chance of recovering possession. More importantly, the lack of first up tackles - Pirates were threatening and dynamic but we let them be! We have changed playing squad but continue to play as we did before.......
We almost created that late chance through Cam Cowell that might've gotten us 2 points which would've been a steal from that penalty count!!!
They were good, they always attacked the space - they saw what players were on the floor and attacked where they'd come from and often found that seam between the defensive line and back 3 with their tactical kicks!
Their 5 (captain?) and half backs bossed the 1st half especially and tbh they looked like they were cruising in attack but as I said they are a good side.
I was worried about our back 3 getting exposed, Kyle Evans had a good game but positionally he lacks experience at this level and I can't honestly believe that Wilson especially and McColl/Flockhart aren't the wingers that we're looking to play at this point in time???
Bad head knock for Stedman, Pitman was missed to get us going forwards and a shoulder for Lucock to worry about too...
...and Jersey and Bedford next its not getting much easier just yet??!!
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.

thomasmachin: I would support any reasonable suggestion to support the Club
