  1. Agree. We didn’t play bad just the fact Fax did everything better than us on the day. He played well and looks a handy signing.
  2. Best side won today, Fax more than deserved the win. They looked dangerous every time they attacked. Keyes cut us open time and again. We just looked out of sort defensively but they ran some great lines and had real shape about them in attack. Not our best day but 9 wins out of 12, I’d have taken that at the start of the season. Upwards and onwards.
  3. Anyone seen the workington forum? Claims Pauli Pauli has been released because of disciplinary issues at York and signed for Worky. Any truth?
  4. I’d say 3-400ish. Made a decent noise for the first 20 minutes.
  5. Without doubt the best performance by the Knights since moving into the new stadium. After last weeks poor showing I feared for us before the game what with the Vikings in decent form but that fear was dispelled with the knights putting on an outstanding performance across the board 1-17 and for the full 80 mins. I’d have payed the admission money only just to see Levi Edwards footwork in bamboozling four defenders and off load! It was that good. The kid looks a talent. Whole side were immense but huge shout out to the pack that dominated from the first minute. My mom was Danny Kirmond who had a massive game both in attack and defence. He was backed up superbly by Chris Clarkson. Both lads have had stick in the past but both still have so much quality and it showed in todays performance. Jack Teanby had a stormer, his best game in a long while and it was good to see Two P’s doing some damage in his short but productive spells. All in all a good day. Ladies side played well and look to have recruited well. Stanley at full back looks exceptional as does Hollie Dodd who runs some quality lines at pace. Well done to both sets of Knights players. You did us proud.
  6. A fair few missing but todays gone and it’s on to another big game against the Vikings. We certainly need to turn up as they are flying. The discipline and defence needs to be cleaned up by the sounds of it on todays showing. Andy Acko didn’t seem too impressed with it today. Hats off to all the knights fans that made the trip north to witness that. Must have been hard viewing even with all the changes. Next weeks another week. Onwards and upwards.
  7. Couldn’t have done much worse Coolie lad by the sounds of it
  8. Brendan is back ! More of the same hopefully.
  9. Hopefully they can win the second half and show some pride. Just seems to be something missing this season with the vibe around the club. A few of us at work were saying it the other day when discussing the Knights at the moment. Anyone else feeling the same or is it just us? All seems a little flat compared to seasons gone. At least the ladies had a good cup win 78 - 0. Well done to them.
  10. Sounds like it’s a woeful first 40 minute display. You can’t win games if you can’t do the basics like finding touch from a penalty. Fingers crossed that we can maybe find a way back into this but it seems a big ask.
  11. At half time and 4-6 down I sat there and thought…I fancy us to do them second half! Second half we never turned up. To say it was disappointing was an understatement. Mellor ran the show, we never laid a hand on him apart from Clare taking his head off. The difference between Fev, Leigh and us is huge. On this showing I’d say Fev are the better side of the two after seeing them both. Very poor day at the office but next weeks another day and game. Hopefully we will see a different Knights side. Preferably one that comes out of the changing rooms second half. Onwards. Keep the faith.
  12. Wasn’t pretty but what a superb team performance. Not many will come away with two points from Batley. Immense defensive stint at times. Great day out in the rain but boy was it worth it. Well done to James and all the back room staff but most of all to all 17 player who were magnificent. One of the best knights wins in many many years.
  13. Going to need a massive second half defensive effort. Batley are so well drilled at playing the pitch and conditions. Decent first 40 from us but this is going to go to the wire. One score in it either way.
  14. Always tough over there. We will have to be at our best to get anything out of this. I’ll go for a draw 20-20. Can’t remember the last time I saw us win over there. Seem to remember on a baking hot day in the late 90s us winning with John Strange and Matty Lambert having stormers. That apart it’s been poor pickings.
  15. Yes at home to Guiseley John.
  16. Harris could get 5 games along with James Clare. The Cas friendly could be costly.
  17. Be interesting to hear from the man himself on the academy. Love to know more about him and not just what I’ve read online and his background
  18. It’s doing everything to disrupt the football club too and I’m sure someone told McGill is something to do with SMC. The whole system is a shambles. Fans of both clubs deserve better.
  19. Good runout for both side. Cas certainly took the game seriously and the Knights never took a backward step. At 16-0 down after 10 minutes you feared a very heavy defeat but the lads plugged away and deservedly scored two good tries in the second half. Matty’s been the best of the day I’d say. Hopefully no serious injuries, a couple of lads came off with knocks let’s hope they’re nothing serious and everyone is available for Fev. Good performances across the pitch, nice to see Kriss B looking sharp after his injury nightmares. A fit Kriss is a very good player in this league. Knights MOM…Marshy with a big shoutout to Thompson who gets through so much work. On the crowd, I’d say they’d be about 2500-3000. Looked slightly more than the City game on Saturday which was 2300. Really can’t workout why the club doesn’t open the south stand. City only had the two open v Slough but it wasn’t the biggest draw in the Trophy. I actually prefer the West stand. Now I’d love to see that open. Fev will bring a few even though it’s on the box. Why don’t they house away fans in the away end.
  20. Totally agree with what everyone has said. Jon has given the club its pride back. He’s take us from a ramshackle, shambles of club six years ago to a professional and respected club within the game. He’s a very shrewd business man and a gent too. I’m sure he will be a success in whatever project he moves on to next. Been a City fan too, I know a lot of us want him to take over from McGill but that’s just a dream. He leaves us in a fantastic state and I’m sure he’s done his groundwork on Clint to see that the new owner is a fit person and one that can carry on his good work while taking us to the next level. Jon and his judgement through this six years has been spot on with regards those that he employs so I’m sure this will be another superb decision for the Knights. Cheers Jon for all you’ve done. You’ve delivered a Club we can all be very proud of. Miracle transformation.
  21. Great win. We look a different side compared to a month ago. Granted we are still a long way off been a complete package but let’s give credit where it is due. Lot better in defence and with two half backs on the pitch to dictate us around the pitch and some good lines been run by the pack we looked more potent in attack. The two Leeds lads have really given us a spark and McDonnell really caught the eye with his runs on the fridges. Big shoutouts to Sam Scott who was massive, Kriss Brining who speeded things up in his first spell and Tim Spears for his leadership. Really enjoyed the game. Was a good team performance and a deserved victory. Was sat with the Widnes fans one of which said we were hopeless and with the wind second half that they (Widnes) would put 50 on us. His mate responded with fairness that, the Chemics only play for 40 minutes so we would come away with the points if they played to type…and they did. Well played lads, big credit for a much improved performance. Credit to Fordy and the coaching staff too. Tough game next week at Fev but we do look a better side so hopefully we can give them a game.
  22. Vital win. Lot better today both in attack and defence. The two Leeds lads both have pace and are strong in contact. Both had good games and gave us different attacking options. Ronan deservedly won MOM on his birthday. Thought he had a cracking game. Shout out to Clarkson who has taken some flack this season but credit him for a decent game too. We look a better more organised side with Timmy Spears in the side. He's a leader and we seem more settled with him out on the paddock. Good to see Matty M back too. All in all a good performance and one we can build on. We seemed to have more confidence today which was good to see. Credit to the lads and also to James and the coaching team. Well played lads. Hopefully its upwardly mobile up that table from now on.
  23. Huge game for us on Sunday. Thought there were some good signs with ball in hand v Fev. Hopefully we can take that into the Swinton game and come away with two points that could go a long way in securing out Championship status. Fingers crossed we can start strong and get the first score then the confidence might come back. We’ve just got to support the lads Sunday and I’m sure we all will. Fingers crossed for a decent performance and two points. Be interesting to see squad selection, a few back from injuries and others back from self isolating. In Fordy we trust. Omwards and upwards.
  24. Enjoyed the game if not the result. In that heat big kudos to both sides for putting on a great spectacle and playing for the full 80. Yes defensively both sides were not the best but you can’t knock either side for effort. Unlucky Knights, there were signs of what we can do with ball in hand if only we could sort that defence out. Congratulations to Fev on the win.
  25. Exactly that. I’ve been called out as not been a real fan…ironically by someone who’s been watching three years. Nothing wrong with a new fan base, just the opposite, it proves the club is selling its product well and I hope most newbies stick with the club through good and bad I’ve seen the club die twice, seen us hammered at the likes of Rochdale Big Mick Nanyn scoring 5 or six that day, seeing us get smashed by 90 at Widnes with Phil Cantillon scoring six (I think). Seeing us get beat when been the Wasps at Gateshead Thunder when they’d not won in a year and a half by 50 points and stood at Ryedale Staduim/Huntington Stadium with 200 diehards there. I’m saying we do love the club and support it by sticking with it over all them years.
