It has been a really good four weeks for Doncaster Knights with four wins out of four and 19 points out of a possible 20.
During that time the Knights have moved up from 11th place in the Championship to fourth so well done to Director of Rugby Brett Davey and all of the squad.
The club face stern tests in their next four matches against Bedford (away), Nottingham (home), Esher (away) and London Welsh (home). Esher are currently bottom but will welcome back their dual registered players from Harlequins.
Saturday’s game at Bedford will be shown live on Sky Sports 3 at 3.30pm. Sky has introduced a number of new features including cameras in the dressing rooms and player and/or coach interviews before, during and after the game.
This season the TV company are showcasing the Championship as a developing second tier of professional rugby within England that is fast closing on the Premiership in terms of standard.
It’s difficult to talk or read about rugby these days without England’s World Cup performances, both on and off the field, coming to the forefront.
It’s all very sad as it takes away from the occasion of the World Cup itself and the performances, again both on and off the field, of Wales and Ireland.
Those of you who watched the Wales v Ireland quarter final must have been impressed by what was a cracking game of rugby.
Last night’s home clash with Leeds Carnegie leaves two outstanding ties in the British and Irish Cup.
They are away against Ulster on Friday, November 11 and then on Saturday, December 17 at home to Welsh legends Swansea.
These two names add to the many illustrious clubs that the Knights have now played and show how far they have developed as they bring top quality rugby to the town.
