DONCASTER Knights’ boss Brett Davey saw his charges win for the first time since taking over the Championship club in Saturday’s home game against Moseley at Castle Park.

Knights, who climbed to seventh in the table, led throughout when beating visiting Moseley 29-21 at Castle Park.

“We always looked in control and It was nice to get our first win,” said Davey.

“We carried in from where we had left off in the second half of our game at Cornish Pirates in the first half.

“We played really well in the first 40 minutes and our defence was a lot better than it has been in the first half of the Pirates’ game and we never looked like conceding the same sort of tries.

“The only thing I was critical off was the fact that once we’d scored our bonus try for some reason we went into a defensive mode

“They were exactly what we thought they’d be. But we’ve not been paying too much attention to who we are playing and concentrated more on ourselves.”

Among the players to impress Davey was No 8 Andy Boyde: “Andy worked incredibly hard and tackled well,” said the Welshman. “He’s been our most improved player over the last 18 months.”

Skipper Chris Hallam, who was making his first start of the season, also caught Davey’s eye,

“Chris made a big difference,” said Davey. “With him being our captain and leader just gives us a bit more spark. “Having said that Lee Audis has played well this season.”
