Superb, lost me voice.
What a fantastic effect in defence, total commitment from all 17, an amazing effort looking at the experience and age out there today, kids galore.
Hard to pick anyone out as all 17 were magnificent, Nicko what a Trojan, so hard to pull down, Sam Scott causing havoc running out wide and Mr Duracell, Jack Aldous, just never ever stops, yet again putting in an immense effort. but star of the show for me was Simon Brown, kicked Fev to death and won the half back battle over Finn. Yes, he don't do much with the ball in hand but my god I've not seen a better kicker at the Knights since Broughy, he seems to find the gap all the time and his 3? 40/20 today really did turn the screw on Fev.
Great afternoon, lost my voice but I'm not complaining, well done everyone, all 17 did us proud today, thanks to all the lads and Gary too.

Best all round performance for many years, battered the big-time Charlies and they don't like it. Blaming Hewer for everything, face it Fev you are not invincible, clearly have some pace and fancy stuff but also the attitude to go with it.

Well done Knights defensively brilliant and scored some great tries, too many MOMs today, Tom Carr and Nicho were just ahead, Browny, Presley and Aldous immense. Who says Elvis can't tackle !!
Take this form into Mondays game and we should have a chance of beating Barrow at their place.
Thanks and the wife's pleased it will now be a happy Easter in our house.

What a great display from 1 to 17 today,Fearing the worst when fev scored,but we were awesome for the rest of the game.Pity the crowd was not as big as i thought. Where are york supporters?Have you all left the city and moved to Leeds,Castleford.If you are a rugby fan you should be making a effort to get to the next home game,because if we have to rely on visting teams bringing a big support to keep the club going we don't deserve a rugby club.

Well done York, the best team won and deservedly so.

We certainly should be and are better than today's performance but York were certainly worth the victory inall departments today.

Anyone else see that Melbourne Storm move we put on? And I nearly sh@t myself when Browne nearly got that interception to the end of the match. Great game.

It's time to park the camels.

At last some Fev fans who accept defeat graciously, well done lads and thanks, I also thought we handled most of what you threw at us well, yes we had a couple of lucky decisions but so did Fev. great result and a good tough game of rugby, some of your forwards were built like man-mountains,mhwoever think they thought they could simply run through us. Saxton still your stand out player for me, real handful every time he got the ball.
