Well what can we say? Two more injuries - Ollie and Howard Packman which is not good news.
Down to the match - first half was error strewn by the Knights and Amps basically won the match in the first 40. Sir didn’t help much but ce la vie - I wish he had signalled his decision occasionally. Talking of decisions we didn’t make that many sensible ones at 16 to 14 we had a penalty in front of the post went for the corner instead and lost the line out - more on this later. Second half we started a lot more brightly and started to boss things a bit better. The second half was better overall but mistakes and decisions were still going awry, another penalty just to the left of the posts, over kicked and 22 yard kick goes to amps, if only we had kicked that first kickable penalty this kick would have won the match.
well the bonus is we got two points, I wish Ollie and Howard well and I have started my prayers for a markedly improved performance next week.
Good summary Martin...errors and decisions cost us. A frustrating afternoon and what look like two bad injuries on top of that, wishing the lads a speedy recovery. On to next week and hopefully some improvement and we can get a win at home.
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.
