Knights led 10-6 at the break only to find themselves trailing 16-15 midway through the second half. But they stormed to victory with two tries right of the top drawer in the closing minutes.

Planchant (2), Scully and Wilkinson shared out the four Doncaster tries with Luke adding two conversions and a penalty.
