  1. Now it’s time to focus on the big one, the opening Championship game against the odds on title favourites, Toronto Wolfpack. 14 sleeps and counting! We have been here before in 2017 winning in front of an ecstatic crowd of 2,602. Since then both teams have progressed significantly, both on and off the field. Since that encounter the Knights have been drawing some big crowds; 3,031 to see them take on Challenge Cup winners to be, Catalan Dragons. On the final day of last season 3,223 watched the Knights lift the silverware after a nervy but ultimately comfortable win over Whitehaven. But the biggest crowd last season was the opener against the Bulls, which was watched by 4,218. The records are sure to keep tumbling this season with some huge crowds anticipated against some exceptionally good, and well supported opponents. Our home is our fortress though with just one league defeat last term - ironically as far back as the opener against the Bulls. This will be one hell of a test but if we can make BC rock, then you never know.

    Rams got 4 start tonight according to Sky Bet. I know it was only a friendly, but the bookies don’t always get it right.

    Knights v Rams

    It’s been a good week. Several new link ups with local businesses announced, Kriss re-signing, a comfortable win over one of our Championship rivals, with a clean sheet, and we have a flood light pylon up. But above all, we are really playing some quality rugby and the new signings are starting to gel. I have been really impressed by the newcomers. A sneaky feeling that this season will be one that will long live in the memory. Up the Knights.

    Great to have you back Kriss. Well done to all concerned, including Squadbuilder, and everyone who buys their Pot Of Gold tickets on match day. Dig deep tonight! 😉

    He would indeed. If ever there was a reason to support the club financially, this is it. The more financial support (season tickets etc) the better the players we can sign.

    Possibly one for AB but can anyone recall when we last won at Mount Pleasant? I think we won in 80/81 but can’t recall since. The Gallant Youths certainly know how to play the slope. We will need to be wise to it.

    A really good workout against a tough no nonsense team. Thought the Hunslet scrum half was their pick. For the Knights, Dave Peterson showed just much he will add to this Knights team, in for me, a man of the match performance. Special picks for Matty M and Brad Hey, and thought Jack Teanby went well again. Hope Blaggy’s injury is not as bad as it looked but if it’s knee I do fear the worst.

    And we are 20/1 for the Championship Grand Final (8th favourites). Tipped for a mid-table finish.
