The match day squad is looking stronger every match now and others are coming back to fitness. It seems as if Sam Jones, Pete Lucock and Matt Smith are the only ones not in training. Been really looking forward to tomorrow's game all week and hoping for a good result and performance.

What a tense finish with the whole crowd holding their breath at the end. We had line-out problems initially but a good strong scrum. Several mistakes in play but a well fought win. Really looking forward to Ampthill next week with what I expect to be a close game again.
Well done to Sam for slotting the pen especially after the one last season...the forwards continue to look dominant despite the line out issues but we need more invention in the backs if we are to win more games against better opponent, that said the backs defence has improved massively from last season. Looking forward to visiting Ampthill next week.
The defence won us the match. It was terrific against a better, more creative and more dynamic team. What was missing was any sort of attack penetration, creativity, heads up rugby. Who coaches attach? Useless.
Boden was saying that this was Griff's team, Griff's selection, not his. That says a lot about what's to come. And it needs to.
Guy Williams, along with Steve Hossack, has been writing Knights match reports for the Rugby Paper for quite some time now. Personally I don’t have too much of a problem with his report on last Saturday’s game against Nottingham other than perhaps he could have mentioned the three good scoring chances we butchered in the first half.
Saturday's game was a win and as such points on the board but let's be honest did we deserve the points. Nottingham out played us and had more flair. Saying that once again I don't think the ref did either team any good,too long to take scrums.
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!

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.

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

Sir Spicious: Sorry, Lock. I think most of us forget to check the Shoutbox so it wasn't bad manners that we ignored you, more bad habits. Welcome to the chat. Look forward to your contributions. New voices are always welcome.
