Knights cup quest over following Reds defeat.

Jersey Reds 22-10 Doncaster Knights.

The Knights challenge for the British & Irish Cup is over having lost out to an impressive Jersey side in today’s quarter final.

In the Jersey wind and drizzle Donny never really asserted themselves on the Reds who outscored them by four tries to two

The early signs weren’t great with the Reds definitely beginning brighter and subjecting the Knights to a barrage of early attacks. Resilient and hard working defensive play prevented early scores and having ridden the early pressure the Knights began to get a feel for the game and got particular purchase from their driving lineout.

One midfield penalty gave the pack a chance to assert themselves from a deep lineout and they did just that; winning another penalty just outside the Jersey 22m. Humberstone turned down the points, went to the corner and seemed to have found a way over the line but not quite and possession was tied up with the result a Jersey pen.

A questionable scrum penalty against the Donny pack put the Reds in range and having secured possession the Reds quickly went through the phases. After some impressive, but exhausting, defence scrum half Keiran Hardy produced a smart show and go at the base of a ruck to scarper over the line. Cope converted, 7-0.

The Knights looked better after the opening score and continued to threaten with the driving line out and, as the clock ticked towards forty minutes, you would argue that a seven- point lead was reflective of proceedings. Unfortunately, the Reds had had other ideas and bagged another score on the stroke of half time.

Another questionable scrum penalty was followed a slightly harsh penalty against Alex Shaw for a high tackle. The Knights managed to spoil the line out but, at the resulting scrum, lose possession was collected by the Reds shifted promptly.

Spotting a two on one out wide Cope sent a cross field kick to the right corner. Against double coverage Charlie Foley could not gather possession with Tom Pincus claiming the ball and the score. Cope could not convert making the half time score 12-0.

The Knights started the second period brightly and created a genuine chance just moments after the restart.

A well-placed kick ahead from Simon Humberstone was chased down by Curtis Wilson who got hold of Scott Van Breda within a metre of his own try line. Donny players flooded the ruck but the Reds got back just in time to retain possession and clear.

The Knights account was opened shortly after however, as Dougie Flockhart elected to go at goal with a penalty on the half way line. The winger struck it low and hard and the ball sailed through the uprights to cut the lead to single figures.

Unfortunately, this was as good as it got for Donny who suffered a string of in-game injuries which caused visible disruption to elements of the side’s play. This said, discipline proved to be the team’s real undoing with the final penalty count looking rather unfavorable.

Scrum half Hardy scored his second of the game around the hour mark, capitalizing on some creative line out play to take an inside ball and race through a hole in the Donny formation.  Then Skipper Nick Selway but the tie beyond doubt with ten minutes to go.

A series of pressure, mostly the result of penalties against, put the Reds in the corner and the hooker dropped over the line to make it 22-3.

Credit must go to the Donny boys who showed no lack of commitment in the tie and found a way through in the dying moments.

A nice break down the left hand side from Tyson Lewis was moved in field and from there the forwards ground out the hard yards. Having got to within in a metre a penalty went the Knights way, the pack held it in themselves to maul over the line with Ben Hunter finishing it off. Flockhart added the extras and moments later the game was called to a close.

A tough pill to swallow for the Knights who now need to dust themselves down and focus on a challenging end of season run in back in the Championship.

DKTV | Griff – Bedford & Cup quarter final preview

Director of Rugby Clive Griffiths reviews a frustrating afternoon at Goldington Road and also looks ahead to Good Friday as the Knights look to reach the semi-final of the British and Irish Cup. 

The Knights boss highlights several positives from his side’s performance against the Blues as well as being pleased by the return to action of several previously injured players. Griff was also quick to point out the need to eradicate the individual errors that allowed Bedford attacking platforms from which they punished the Knights.

This week there is a shift in focus as the Knights take on Jersey Reds in the British and Irish Cup quarter-final. The Reds enter the clash in formidable form and Clive says his side will need to show a lot of heart to be successful on the Island.

Blues edge Goldington Road try-fest.

Bedford Blues 41-32 Doncaster Knights.

The Knights were unable to hold their early lead against Bedford Blues as they lost out in a vastly entertaining display at Goldington Road.

The Blues are renowned for the free-flowing and attacking brand of rugby and they did not disappoint today and the Knights were seemingly sucked in and looked to match them at their own game.

The result of this was 73-point thriller with four tries scored a piece and fly-half Will Hooley’s five penalties proving to be the difference between the two sides; including a controversial one late on to rob Donny of a losing bonus-point.

Fans did not need to wait long for the first score of the game which came after just eight minutes and could have been earlier with opportunities knocking from the opening whistle.

A thundering hit in midfield from number eight Josh Tyrell saw possession turned loose as Bedford went on the attack. Colin Quigley seized the loose ball and play was quickly moved wide where Cam Cowell showed his lightening pace to break into the home 22m. Possession was recycled and after a couple of phases Simon Humberstone launched a wide miss pass which was collected by David Nelson to trot over in the corner. Flockhart’s conversion dropped just wide.

The home fans were not quiet for long as just two minutes later they were back on level terms.

Winger Howard Packman chipped a smart kick ahead of Tyson Lewis forcing Jack Ram to race back and ground in goal. From the resulting scrum full back Rich Lane cut into the line and was able to fight through contact and touch down. Fly half Will Hooley had a bit of a nightmare with the extras leaving the scores at 5-5.

No sooner had we drawn breath than the game’s third try was scored.

An early shove at a Knights scrum saw referee Chris Riley award Donny with a free kick that was quickly taken by Tom James who hit Lesley Klim on a stunning flat line. Les burst through the Blues defence leaving him one on one against full back Lane where some smart footwork and good pace saw the centre skip home to score and Dougie added the extras.

The Knights almost added another just two minutes later but Tyson Lewis was just judged to have put a foot in touch after taking an offload from James. Play was brought back for a high tackle on the Knights scrum half earlier in the play and Lee Dickson was sin binned for the offence. Flockhart took advantage to kick the Donny into a ten-point lead.

It lasted only moments though as the topsy-turvy nature of the early scoring continued. Richard Lane got his second without needing to do an awful lot with lots of space found for the full back to cross on the right hand side.  

Hooley hit the extras shortly before levelling the scores with a penalty on 25 minutes after a back-peddling Donny defence was penalized; 15-15.

The Blues then took the lead for the first time with the final try of the first half. Will Hooley struck a penalty deep into the Knights 22m but it seemed as if the danger had passed when hooker Tom Lindsay overthrew the line out. Jason Hill was quickest to react but as he went to claim possession knocked on and the ball was quickly spun in field where Lindsay was on hand to run in untouched.

Hooley hit the extras and a then second penalty before the break to make the half time score 25-15.

With forty minutes playing down the ‘Bedford slope’ to come there was no need for undue concern and the Knights made an electric start to the second half.

An early penalty was put to touch by Humberstone and, after securing possession the pack looked to drive, the home defense dropped the maul but the forwards kept it tight and strung together some patient pick and go phases. Time and time again the Blues repelled the carries but once play was switched wide Will Owen was able to bash his way through to touch down.

The side’s exchanged successful penalty kicks before the hour mark leaving Bedford ahead 28-25 going into the game’s final quarter.

The Knights seemed well-placed for a strong finish but an overthrown lineout on half way was cruelly punished. A bouncing ball was collected and the Blues quickly transitioned from defence to attack, former Knight Jarad Williams ran a smart shoulder line to break before finding Lee Dickson in support to score.

Hooley kicked his fourth penalty of the afternoon with just over ten-minutes remaining leaving the Knights with a mountain to climb. There was no sign of surrender in the side though as they battled to register a fourth try and reduce the deficit to six points.

Seemingly endless phases on pick and go carries eventually ended when replacement back-row Alex Shaw forced his way over with five minutes left to play and Flockhart added the extras.

Bedford did well to run the clock out in the dying minutes before a rather farcical ending to the tie.

Having been awarded a penalty, referee Chris Riley signaled the last play of the game and Harry Sheppard kicked the ball to touch to end the game….or so he thought.

With the players shaking hands and fans walking to the bar Riley came back on to the field to announce that it was in fact not the end of the game and that the penalty should be retaken with a couple of seconds left on the clock. Having received this new information Sheppard elected to go at goal and with a successful kick ended the game and denied the Knights a losing bonus point.

Another tough loss to take for the Knights who should real class at times and now hope to secure progression to the British and Irish Cup semi-finals against Jersey Reds on Good Friday.

Returnees boost Knights for Blues.

The Knights look to get back on track against Bedford Blues at Goldington Road tomorrow and will do so aided by the return of several previously injured players.

The Club’s all time leading point scorer Dougie Flockhart returns from a torn bicep on the right wing in place of Curtis Wilson with Tyson Lewis and Falcons young gun Cameron Cowell completing the back three.

In midfield, Will Owen makes his first appearance of 2018 to partner Lesley Klim who gets the nod over Andy Bulumakau with Mat Clark sidelined through sickness.

At half back Tom James will hope to upset a few former teammates starting at nine with Simon Humberstone continuing at stand off.

Colin Quigley returns from injury to partner David Nelson and Jack Bergmanas in the front row, the second row of Matt Challinor and Tom Hicks is unchanged from last weekend.

Skipper Michael Hills left the game with a knee injury last weekend and looks unlikely to be back fit this season so Jack Ram moves to open side with former Blue Jason Hill at six and Josh Tyrell continuing at No. 8.

On the bench Sale Sharks hooker Curtis Langdon will hope to make an impact as will Owen Evans on his return to play from a head injury. Joe Sproston completes the front row replacements with Falcons loanee Nick Civetta and Alex Shaw also named on the bench. Michael Heaney and Charlie Foley offer cover across the backline.

Kick off tomorrow is at 15:00 and updates will be available on twitter.

DKTV | Jason Bedford preview & Lloyd back at it!

This week the DKTV cameras caught up with back-row Jason Hill and centre Lloyd Hayes ahead of a big week of training at Castle Park before taking on Bedford Blues this Saturday.

Back row Jason Hill entered last weekend’s game with Richmond from the bench in the second half but despite his late efforts was unable to aid a recovery as the Knights lost out to the Londoners 12-22.

Having reviewed the game earlier this week, the former Bedford man highlighted individual error as part of Saturday’s downfall, something they will be aiming not to repeat this weekend at Goldington Road.

The supporters coach runs for the trip and will depart Castle Park at 11.30am. The cost of a seat is just £15 for adults and £8 and to reserve your seat please either text John Lowe on 07977 112706 or email on johnlowe0002@gmail.com.

Centre Lloyd Hayes has had to endure a frustrating spell on the sidelines following a knee injury sustained in late 2017.

Following an extensive rehab programme the midfielder is set to return to action this weekend for hometown side Caldy in National One.

The midfielder states he is feeling good having returned to training last week and cannot wait to be back on the field and in a Donny jersey.

 

Knights pay price for slow start.

Doncaster Knights 12-22 Richmond

In arctic conditions the Knights were unable to turnaround a slow start as they fell to a first home defeat since January versus a committed Richmond outfit.

Prior to kick off a minute’s applause was observed as the Knights and Richmond remembered Ian Williams. Ian and his family have a long-affiliation with Richmond Rugby Club and it was fitting that the Knights first game back at Castle Park since his passing might be against the London Club.

The snow fell intermittently all morning and the slippy conditions and bitter weather made for a stop start opening to proceedings. Early chances were often spurned through handling errors and both sides seeked to gain a territorial advantage through the air.

It took almost quarter of an hour for the game’s opening score and it came shortly after the Knights most promising charge of the early stages. Despite this, it was the visitors who struck first after flanker Jack Allcock was able to breakaway from a surging driving line out and barge his way through the bodies in goal. Full back Rob Kirby bettered the effort, 0-7.

The score was followed by more bad news as skipper Michael Hills limped off with a knee injury suffered in the maul preceding Allock’s try and then Kirby extended the lead to ten points with an on target penalty moments later.

Donny produced a couple of half chances shortly after with big Joe Sproston seeming to have broken away on the left wing only for play to be brought back for a forward pass. Richmond nearly capitalized on confusion in the Donny rank moments later when Tyson Lewis was forced to track back after he and the touch judged disagreed on whether a looming kick had found touch.

The second try of the game came in rather innocuous circumstance but credit to Richmond loose head Jeremy Cunnew who spotted a gap at a ruck from outside the Knights 22m and set off. The covering defence raced to bring down the front row man but he would not be stopped, scoring to leave Kirby with the simplest of conversions.

At 0-17 the signs were not good but Donny showed signs of revival and almost scored immediately from the restart. The Knights attack stretched Richmond to the point of breaking and seemed to just need to pick their gap but unfortunately time and time again the final pass was just not found and the visitors held out.

A first Donny score did come shortly after, however, and it was another case of good front row vision as Joe Sproston was the quickest to react to a messy Richmond line out. Having seized possession deep in the visitors 22m the tight head put his foot down to race over the try line – Simon Humberstone just wide with the conversion.

With half time fast approaching the Knights suffered a knock out blow. Having seemingly halted a visiting attack and forced a penalty on their own goalline referee Hamish Smales, following consultation with his touch judge, awarded a try with second row Chris Davies credited with the effort much to the bemusement of the Donny players.

Half time 5-22.

Donny couldn’t have made a much better start to the second period and almost scored immediately from the restart when Curtis Wilson was able to interrupt the Richmond attempt at fielding possession. From the resulting scrum the Knights opened up an overlap put possession got caught in midfield before Allcock forced a penalty to clear the danger.

The Knights wouldn’t be denied for much longer and got their second on 47 minutes. Flanker Jesse Liston gave away a penalty for a deliberate knock on which Humberstone kicked deep to touch. The pack drove well from the lineout before it was pulled down deep in the Richmond 22m. From here a series of pick and go carries got the hosts closer and closer until Josh Tyrell was able to fight through and touch down. Humberstone’s successful conversion made the gap ten points and it was game on.

The Knights continued to enjoy the vast majority of possession and territory in the second half but just lacked a little sharpness at times as the visitors managed to absorb the pressure without too much threat to their goal line.

A handful of half chances went their way but in fairness Richmond also threatened but neither side added to their score allowing the Londoners to complete a home and away double over the Knights this term who now have seven days to dust themselves down ahead of trip to Goldington Road and Bedford next weekend.
