Despite initial confusion over how the massive goal posts could go missing, the club have confirmed that not all is as it seems.

As part of a refurbishment programme at the ground, Doncaster Knights revealed that the pitch would be relaid for the next season.

As a result, the goal posts were removed from the ground this morning, leading the club to make the tongue-in-cheeck appeal on Twitter.
