I would be very happy with a third or fourth place finish. Unlike other members of this forumn I have only been going to the Doncaster games for the last few seasons and have enjoyed watching the rugby without the success e.g. mid-table finishes. However this season, albeit on television, I have seen the awakening of a sleeping behemoth and with it, I hope, will come the supporters = revenue = greater success.
Stay away from negative people, they have a problem for every solution
Sean - I have been associated with the club since 1968 and have enjoyed my younger playing days, my senior playing days, my alickadoo days, back o t' stand days and now my KORT days. Oh - not forgetting Knight shift.
I have been involved on the Committee, supported the team through their numerous promotions, both home and away and I look upon DRFC as my second home.( My long suffering wife thinks its my first!) I have made many long lasting friends and acquaintances and will continue to attend until my dying day.
I am so glad you are enjoying coming to Castle Park - come and join us at a KORT lunch next season - Covid allowing.
The KORT is a good crack but it helps if you are missing a marble of two. If you are slightly more sane, there are other social opportunities to engage in and I would recommend experiencing them all.
The Knight Shift will most definitely be on my retirement plans, once I get there that is, the efforts these folk put into maintaining areas for the club is commendable and definitely saves money for the club that they can then invest in making the place even more desirable to attend. Anyone who either has a lot of spare time in the week, or has recently retired and is looking for something to do, and would like to support the club should reach out to these chaps.
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.

thomasmachin: I don't think a Vera Brown tribute singer will sell the Forces Lunch as well as a Vera Lynn tribute singer !!

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

lock: Hi, I'm new to the Knights Forum. Hello everyone!

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.
