    CONGRATULATIONS to all at the Kneets from Peter and Lesley in Crete. We are currently supping Greek champers which is surprisingly good but anything will taste good tonight. After other wines with our evening meal the obligatory raki will not touch the sides and will be drunk in large quantities. Regards to all our friends who have stuck by York RL through thick and thin. ps I must send this mail while I am able .......Hic burp etc etc

    I don't own a helpful surgical implant John so after the last two heart stopping weeks I am recovering in Crete. We will be with you guys in spirit for the next two matches. Up the table topping Kneets!!

    Oldham at home

    I hardly dared voice my concerns pre match so didn't bother. As soon as I saw that Worky conceded fifty yesterday I feared that both they and us must be two tired sides after last weeks epic encounter. And so it seemed today as I thought the Knights looked jaded in the second half and Oldham sensed we were there for the taking. Once again our defence saw us through. My man of the match was Brad Hey who caused Oldham plenty of problems down that left flank and he was still running strongly late on.

    As a Knights fan I'm VERY annoyed at this and like others wish to end the sad lives of these scumbags. All us ' small 'clubs depend so much on the hard work of those behind the scenes to keep going and this must be heartbreaking. Hope you Marras can catch them and string em up.

    Workington away.

    I was sitting in the front row of the main stand with at least 20 Knights fans next to me. In the top corner of that stand there was row after row of fans who support the team who are TOP OF THE LEAGUE. I would estimate there were at least 200 Knights fans at the game. A trip to Spec Savers may be in order or were your grapes still tasting a little sour after losing a brilliant match.

    Ding dong

    Indeed, it certainly wasn't pretty but Defence, Defence and more Defence won it for us. Our attack was a bit off at times and in the first half with a bit more composure we could have put the game to bed by half-time. Having said that Worky were well fired up and battled to the end. A big WELL DONE to the players for yet another gutsy performance.

    match day

    Think the Donny fans were scattered John which didn't help their cause at all. That's two weeks running our defence has seen us through cos apart from the late tries our attack is sadly misfiring, nearly lost count of the times we worked hard to get into their 20 then looked clueless as to what to do next. Don't wish to take anything away from Donnys determined efforts but we are making it oh so hard for ourselves by wasting field position. But as you say a win is a win.

    Thought their no 6 Lewis Young was man of the match by a mile, we found him difficult to handle. IMO for much of the match Thunder looked the better side and it was only our tight defence that kept us in it at times. We sorely missed the leadership of our senior players and the guile of Connor . Having said all that we did well to find a way to win against a very determined Thunder.

    Next up: North Wales

    Like many I've said we need another specialist half but credit where credits due. Ben had a stormer yesterday and caused Town all sorts of problems. I would agree that he needs to be busy and might be wasted on the wing but originally thought he would be used more at fullback. If he continues to play like yesterday we'll all be happy but it remains to be seen if he can. Whatever, he is a great signing. Talking of great signings, Tim Spears continues to prove he is one of the best. His appetite for hard work is immense and he always leads by example.

    Colin Forsyth

    When I was a lad first saw Colin playing alongside my brother Paul for Heworth, seem to remember he was a young centre then but developed into one of the best and strongest forwards York has produced. His son Craig did him proud and gave good service to his home town club. Commiserations to family.
