  1. Barrow v Whitehaven

    Well done Barrow, thought you were the best team last season so well deserved and hope you can go up and stay up, we'll just have to beat our bogey side in the Championship when we finally get there 😉 Hard luck Haven, brilliantbshowing after playing 108mins last week against us. Cracking crowd as well
  2. 2018 Squad

    Andy Ellis now signed on again, Joe Bachelor for me the player of the season, fantastic spot by Fordy to pick him out of a Coventry side and developmhim as he has, immense this season as a rangy second rower with great running ability out wide.
  3. Season Review.

    Simply awesome season, highs and lows and I remember sitting in Huntington Sports club at Fans Forum 1 thinking if we finish in the top 8 that's a result! What the club has achieved since December on/off the field is remarkable and next season with a few squad changes I really feel even more positive. Would we have taken promotion this year if it came along? Yes of course we would, however many of us thought it's a year too early so here's to 2018 season and more success for the YCK. Thanks for everything this season.
  4. Player for next season

    I'd take him at York, classy experienced player and showed well in his games for us this season.
  5. Haven game

    Haven fan, great game for the neutral, two sides going at each other for 105mins and two sets of fans stood in the torrential rain with plenty of banter. Game could have gone either way, your lads took their chance in the end so congratulations. We left gutted and a long drive back but so proud of our club, the players and all concerned at YCK, we had no club in December so what a brilliant season. Feel excited about next season. Just a note to your fans as well, banter was getting a bit close to boiling over on the open terrace at some points in the game, however at the end of the game having many of your fans coming up to us shaking hands and saying how well we had done reminded me of why I love this game, great fans today on both sides. Good luck next next week at Barrow.
  6. REPORT | York 21-21 Dons

    Thought your lads completely outplayed us today and were very good and scored some great tries. Huge improvements from the last game at BC. If im honest we'll take the point and the play-off place, however you will feel robbed.
  7. Sundays squad

    George not much positive rugby played today I'm afraid. Game was there for winning and Keighley wanted it more.
  8. Keighley match

    Peter very dissapointing showing today, Keighley were their usual workmanlike tough side and looked dangerous when attacking. We kept kicking straight to their back three in first half who fielded and returned everything. At 10-0 we should have gone on to win the game but we kept letting them back in and fair play they took their chances and we blew at least two clear try scoring chances. Couple of times we made breaks but no backing up. Perhaps last week took more out of them. Jo Batchelor was outstanding again and for me our stand out player all season, too many others weren't in the game I'm afraid. Results went for us so not too much damage done, still in fourth but not an easy game in the Super 8s and frustrating after last week. Matty behaaral coming over to the York fans gesturing and their announcer saying "now what's the scores on the board Mr Ford" is pretty low in my opinion. Onwards to to next week's battle with Worky.
  9. Knights 26 Wolfpack 16

    Simply stunning result for the whole club, its not just the score line today's, it's all the off-field marketing and the fact tge new club have true business acumen. Immense day for everyone associated with the club, I know people who turned up today who haven't watched RL for a long time and now we need them to keep coming. Gutted I'm abroad today but will be st Cougar Park next Sunday for the second time this season. Up the Knights
  10. York game.

    Thought your 14 was a good player just clearly carrying too much timber, he was embarrassingly smashed when show boating trying to do a show and go. Thought Forber at 6 was quiet.
  11. Workington

    Peter i totally agree, brilliant elusive player but needs to vary his return runs, he's got the pace, power and step to run straight a little more, however I am sure Fordy will be talking and coaching him about decision making, his timing of chiming into the line in attack and is safety under the high ball makes him a quality FB.
  12. Workington

    Errrr yes the lad had a belter but I think Adam Robinson who is on our books made huge impacts, nice that he had some help out there and both HKR forwards were very strong in attack and defence
  13. York game.

    Oh well that's it then let's all give up and not bother playing any 8s or knockout games and you knock your side for lack of attitude! IF our lads can find a full 80mins then I fear no side in this league at home, away games are tougher and like I say IF. Any of the sides 2nd - 4th have a chance in my opinion as on the day can all beat each other. Last season who honestly gave Rochdale a chance away at Toulouse ? Never say never
  14. Workington

    Very poor Workington side today, glad I hadn't travelled to see that non-effort, although have to say that's the best first half of controlled rugby the Knights have played in a long time. Well done to all at the club, considering we didn't have a club in December! Brilliant turnaround.
  15. York game.

    Poorest Worky side I've seen for a long time, expected a real determined Town side giving us a real test, first half all one-way, second half we went off the boil but if we'd have passed you the ball over our own line you still wouldn't have scored. As for us abusing DR, get a grip, our own squad would still have beaten that side today, glad I hadn't travelled like you lot to see that showing.
