Knights certain to play


Xamax BARLA Yorkshire Cup Finalists North Hull Knights’ home game with Hull Dockers on Saturday in the Hull ARL’s GMB Premier Division is certain to go ahead.

Norths, who face Fryston Warriors on Sunday week in the White Rose decider, have been without a match since early December because of adverse weather and the Christmas break.

Coach Liam Welham has ensured that his squad has retained full fitness with a series of intense training sessions. He does, however, want his players to be battle-hardened as they go into the Cup Final and has therefore lined up a nearby school pitch should the Knights’ own ground again be deemed unfit for play.
