Three changes for Carnegie clash

The Knights welcome rivals Yorkshire Carnegie to Castle Park tomorrow as both sides return to Championship action for the first time in six weeks.

Our opposition enter the match after claiming top position in Group A of the Championship Cup. Carnegie have also won their last four matches after strengthening their squad with several new additions over the last few weeks.

Doncaster exited the cup after a narrow defeat to Nottingham and are looking to bounce back to winning ways this weekend.

The starting line up for tomorrow’s Championship match has just three changes to the side that lost last time out at Castle Park. Ollie Stedman has recovered from an eye injury to make his return against his former club. Elliott Creed enters the team at centre for his 10th appearance since joining in the summer.

Tongan International Kurt Morath also returns from injury and is set to make his first appearance for the Knights since our last league win away at London Scottish in late October.

New addition Sam Olver makes the squad after impressing in training this week with the Knights.
