  1. It’s 10 days since we last had a Knights related article in the York Press. With the first friendly about to kick off it would be good to get some team news. How is training going, are there any injury concerns ? etc. Come on Press keep us informed!.
  2. How did you manage to do this?. When I go to the Knights website and follow the link to synchronize the 2020 fixtures to my calendar, I can only find the Stanza 2019 Knights fixtures.
  3. Don’t you think they already have Super league quality players?.
  4. Although I have sympathy for Fev fans, whose team put up a valiant performance against Toronto, I am more than pleased to see Toronto out of the Championship and into Superleague. As a result we can look forward to renewing our great Derby rivalry with our neighbours Fev.
  5. Will the Knights TV interviewer buy a muffler for his microphone to prevent the wind drowning out the conversations.
  6. Greatly enjoyed coverage as could not get to the match because holidaying in Madeira The two commentators must be hugely disappointed that Fev lost because every time York scored it was just down to Fev tired bodies, however whenever Fev scored it was a well worked try. Plus if Fev had taken their second half chances they would have won at a canter according to one of the commentators.Who cares a well deserved great win for the Knights.
  7. The coverage of York Knights this week has been poor with no information about team selection, injuries or suspensions. All we have seen is the squad selection. Is this a sign of things to come following the departure of Peter Martini.
  8. For those going to the match are there any plans to congregate at any particular area of the ground. Anyone used their website to pre purchase tickets?.
  9. Not at all surprised to see Heckford dropped after his performance at Featherstone Offered nothing either in attack or defence.
  10. Agree totally HaxbyKnight. Three Fax fans, walking out early, turned to the York supporters and said Fax have been absolute rubbish today. What they couldn’t bring themselves to say was that their team had played well and given their all and been beaten by a better team.
  11. Isn’t the Hull K R Frenchman called Franck Thibault ?.
  12. It is strange the wall of silence surrounding Ed Smith. Just over a season ago our ex captain and local poster boy was starring in the Knights revival and attracting attention from Premier Division side Salford. Unfortunately he then receives a serious knee injury which rules him out for the rest of the season. No treatment is forthcoming for months and after a few weeks of seeing him hobbling around on crutches at Bootham Crescent, he disappears from the scene never to be heard of again. Has his injury forced him into retirement ? and if so it would have been nice for the club to have announced this and recognised his service to the Knights. Can someone in the know within the Club please respond to the repeated requests for information.
  13. Yes it’s available on the BBC iplayer for the next 28 days.
  14. Thanks for the response Gav. In that case have they been released by the Club and are now free agents ?.
  15. Gav, as previously asked by george, can you shed any light on the position with Nev Morrison and Ed Smith. The Total RL web site which shows all the comings and goings and new squads for each club, makes no mention of either player. Ed Smith was badly injured around the time he was linked with Salford and then had a long period before being scheduled for an operation. Is he still on York’s books and likely to return when fit and how about Morrison?.
  16. Forget the technicalities of DR, it would have been more informative for the HKR fans if the Hull Daily Mail had identified JBF as a York player and despite his strong performance, not available for further appearances for HKR this season.
  17. I read this report in the Hull Daily Mail and was surprised to see Jake Butler- Fleming described as a dual registered player!. Surely the Mail have got this wrong, he is a York Knights player.
  18. Seeing Sheen was willing to let Harris go I would have liked him to come to York rather than Doncaster.
  19. Whoever Hull KR supply to us at half back they will have to go some to perform better than Liam Harris.
  20. A number have expressed concern regarding an imbalance in the squad between backs and forwards. My concern lies with keeping the forward squad settled with limited game time for a number of these players. Also we have yet to see the DR players coming into the mix which will further worsen the situation if this includes even more forwards.
  21. When do we get the announcement Gav?.
  22. None of the 3 players mentioned were given the option of staying with the Knights. They were released by the Club !.
  23. I was surprised to read in the Press last week that Ed Smith was still awaiting an operation on his ruptured cruciate ligament. I had assumed he would have had an operation shortly after sustaining his injury and would be available to start training for the 2018 season. Instead we learn he will miss the bulk of the season. I would have thought that the Club would have had him insured for medical treatment enabling rapid attention.
