  2. Not long now folks. A great time to go to Toulouse to escape the rain and cooler temperatures that is heading our way later this week. Don’t forget to pack your cream, for the tight ones amongst you that are taking 🧳 (me included), make sure it’s not more than 100 mil. The French are on fine form, at home anyway, hammering Fax on Monday, so we, as supporters, need to be at our very best and most 🗣 vocal. Safe journey everyone. Let’s make Stade Ernest Argeles rock. See you Saturday. 🏟
  3. The crowd was 2229 last Saturday. Spooky!
  4. Credit to Widnes, it takes two teams to create a contest and they made it very hard for us in the first 50, until we scored. Great following by the Widnes fans (best this season), which created a great atmosphere. It’s so refreshing to see great away support after the last few seasons. That’s where we should be aiming. I am sure Lewis is on the case.
  5. Oh we do love playing at Bootham Crescent. I truly believe we can beat anyone there, and I think the players do to. Ok, we didn’t start great. Too many incomplete sets gifting the Vikings easy territory, but we were still in it at half time and even at 10-0 down early in the second half I still felt that the home advantage would see us come back into it. Our first try gave the team belief and we just seemed to go up a gear, quickly adding the second and drawing level on points. Connor’s drop goal edged us ahead for the first time and he followed that up with a short dart to the line as the Widnes defence opened. Still nervy moments as the conversion went across the face of the posts but the last minute penalty would have secured the points had the hooter not already gone in the build up. 10-0 down to 17-10 up takes some doing. Coming back from a 17 point deficit against a quality side like Widnes and on the back of the mauling at Fev and the defeat against the same opponents in the cup, made it all the more remarkable. A big effort to all concerned. See you all in France later this week!
  6. Aye up Deano, We lost two games we probably expected to lose. Granted, the injury situation could be a whole load better but there’s so much to be positive about. - We support the Knights and live in a wonderful city. - We probably never dreamed, 3 years ago, that we could be getting crowds over 2,000 let along averaging that amount. - We have a new stadium on the horizon, at some point! - BC is a decent place to watch rugby league with a fantastic playing surface until then, even though it is falling apart. - We are fourth in the table. - We have one of the best owners/coach in the game. - Many of us are looking forward to a trip to the south of a France this coming weekend. - Then there’s Toronto! Chin up.
  7. Knights get 8 start with Sky Bet. Fev get 12 start against Toronto. Got to be a good bet on their own patch.
  8. One thing is for sure, we are underdogs, but there’s nothing like underdog status to bring the best out of the team as well as the Knights faithful. Promises to be a noisy one. Would be great to get over 3,000.
  9. Some recent pics. Thoughts?
  10. Where has it gone? just looking at the attendances over the weekend, and the one for Widnes v York (2,229) was only surpassed by one team, - not surprisingly it was Leeds Rhinos. Several games involving SL sides drew far fewer: Halifax v London Broncos - 722 Hull KR v Leigh - 2,188 Salford v Rochdale - 1,101 I’d have expected more at Odsal than the 1,691 that turned up to watch the Bulls prevail against Fev.
  11. Just looking at the results in League Express and seems it was an excellent weekend for York’s two leading amateur sides; York Acorn beat Oulton Raiders 44-10 in NCL1 and now sit pretty in second place on the table. Heworth went one better beating promotion hopefuls Waterhead Warriors 72-6 and now sit mid-table in NCL3.
  12. Would be good if we could all be together inside the ground.
  13. Me and Mrs Fenton are flying from Stansted on Friday evening (18:20) returning on Monday morning 10:40, making a nice long weekend of it. Viens sur tes chevaliers!
  14. I think what we do know is whatever squad James puts out will be up for the fight and give it a real go.
