Really enjoyed the last few games John. We had a good strong hardworking pack with an abrasive edge to a few. Quick direct backs too, I always thought Paul Bailey was a very good winger. It's good to hear the referee and the contrast in styles and how players respond to the differing man-management types. Thanks again John.
I thoroughly enjoyed this weekend’s YouTube game against Coventry. I was there somewhere, so a good memory. I did think it quite ironic that the referee was asking his touch officials to ID a Doncaster player who had infringed during Coventry’s try all to no avail. Wonder what “kitty” would think now he spends his time “officiating” in the grandeur of a TV truck! Was good to see the enforcer front row in full pomp, Bunny doing his usual bossing when it came to handbag time, Ngalu running through people and Bowes at his most abrasive! Think I would have to disagree on the merits of Mr Bailey, in all of the seasons I never saw any of his potential. I did see, as the video shows a number of missed tackles and knock forwards when trying to catch the ball. However a pretty good team none the less, guided by a greatly missed Glenn Wilson. A great No8.
I enjoyed that game first time around and that 'bunny hop' try by Ketts sticks in my mind, we were talking about it all the way home. I think I voted Grainger our best 7 but....if I didn't vote then change my vote!The last few games have shown just how good he was, first to breakdown, first tackler, first to any scuffles too...top player.
Cheers John, Enjoyed it, Must have taken you a while to find a game where Adam Kettle got carded 🤣!! I definitely remember games from before the stand was built but don't remember attending that one. Thought the 9 was good but can't remember him at all.
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?
Sept 21, 2017 19:35:08 GMT
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.

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.
