They played some decent rugby against us and the left winger Rob Massam would be a player id like at our club

They did win and thoroughly deserved it but as is the norm in the warm-up games, NWC turned out what will almost be a first choice 17 whereas we had a very young side out.
The Knights will certainly suffer from the 'who are we getting and when' DR scenario as will all the unfancied scramblers in the Championship.
You do wonder the absolute value of warm-up games when as many of possibly six of your starting 17 in the league are not with you until the first league game ?

We Didnt have our dual reg players when we played NWC indeed we had some trialists involved but still managed a win.

York put out a very young side, I wouldn't read too much into the result.

I hope the City Knights and their landlord do some improvement work on the pitch for this season - the state of the surface was an absolute disgrace last year.
Rugby League - great game, shame about the administration.

Agreed Phil.How they ever were allowed to use it with all the pot holes and sand on it was beyond belief.

Nothing wrong with the pitch now & please get over-confident about our result yesterday.

I agree we shouldn't read too much into Yorks pre season result should we?
The only time when pre season results have any relevance is when its our own
Of course in those instances if we play bsdly it means our season is doomed and our stadium will never be built.

i think you right about the stadium not being built, seems to have gone very quiet on that front?.

Yes indeed ,in fact I propose the deletion of all threads and lets just have one big one leading back to this subject on every single possible occasion.

Now it's been mentioned I recall Paul Kidd said at the shirt launch that a planning application would be submitted in the first two weeks of January!.I can't help thinking that all the negative publicity surrounding Salford will cost us! We are all doomed !

Im not so sure. I think there's a possibility that they aren't as daft as they make out.

My local bookmaker is Fred Done. Hes very very rich
He has no shops near me but his massive house is a stones throw away
I've not helped him buy it as I've never ever put a bet on .
I suspect you have.

Absolutely sir. We are after all "supporters."

The use of the word "supporters" is being used very loosely.
