Dewsbury at home Sunday.


Recommended Posts

Jack Teanby has tweaked an hamstring and will miss the Rams game, the good news is Ronan Dixon is fit enough to return along with Sam Davis and Brendan O'Hagan, meaning Matty Marsh can return to the number one spot.

Small squad is going to hurt us. I know we have a few promising youngsters, but they haven’t come through reserve systems like at Leeds or Wigan. We haven’t got  enough forwards. Two or three injuries and we’re down to the bare bones. I see young McDonnell is on loan to Leigh. He did a great job for us - an 80 minute player. We haven’t got many of those in the pack....We’ve got one 8 minute player though. Let’s hope he makes those 8 minutes count on Sunday.

We are certainly light in the back 3could do with a couple of more players to add depth and competition in those positions.

Looking forward to Sunday, looking back on Mondays game we did defend superbly stuck in against a very good Fev side which I believe will be head and shoulders above others this season. 
 

Our forwards did struggle to gain ground against Fev but they put a massive stint in defence which takes it out of you and hopefully we can have more ball and be on the front foot rather than the back like last Monday. 
 

Hoping Brendan is fit to start and move Matty to full back which will give us more options going forward  and give our backs more chance to see the ball.

Dewsbury will be looking to bounce back after a bad loss to Bradford and we struggled to break them down last season at there’s so it won’t be easy and should not be taken for granted.

Regarding squad size and injuries how big a squad can we have do we go for a bigger squad but less class or push the boat out I think the squad is about spot on the only weakness is the back row maybe not enough cover but where do you get decent back rows now that have not been signed already? Yes would have liked Macdonell here but he’s gone to Leigh which will be closer for him I’m sure we are looking but got to make the right choice.

The man in the middle on Sunday is Ben Thaler the Super League referee.

He's reserve referee, main man on Sunday is Tom Grant.

1 back rower i would like to see back at the club is Joe Porter.

Looking forward to Sundays game first one I'll see live this season, watched the Fev game on T.V. but you can't beat being there watching the Knights, pity Coolie can't join us but we can't have everything, up the Kneets.

Yeah , how can you let a trivial event get in the way of R L on a Sunday , plenty of  hot air but no commitment.😁😁😁

Yes unfortunately life gets in the way sometimes... 

Makes it worse I had to turn down directors tickets too

Would have been nice to visit York City's new ground and sample their hospitality 

Maybe next season 

I take it thankfully you've no children or grandchildren that sometimes have to come first before rugby 

But I suppose sat under your bridge longing for Sunday to giving you some purpose of life... Is just enough 🤔😜

Not online... There's no BBC local radio online while the Winter Olympics is on.

Football was online this afternoon. Broadcast can't be received if your living abroad

And it’s got an adult sized pitch too  - not a postage stamp piece of grass like you have at the Tetleys!🤣

Beer and York City Knights. Proof the God loves us and wants to be happy.
