The Doncaster Knights were victorious against Hartpury 11-10 at the weekend. The tough match was worsened by weather conditions at Castle Park.
Whilst Doncaster dominated the first half, Hartpury reeled it back in the second half, scoring 10-8.
The Knights then seized back the game, with Sam Olver scoring a penalty at the death, in a thrilling turn of events.
He said: “I think throughout the season we’ve had tight games, we’ve come to a lot of them, and it does bring you closer together, so hopefully leading into the next three games, it puts us in a good position.”
The South Yorkshire team will now move onto one of their most important matches, against Ealing next weekend. They fear the latter will have a better side, will therefore need to up their game to secure a win.
The Knights have three more points than Ealing, and also have the advantage of two more games.
Steve Boden, Head Coach of the Doncaster Knights, said: “We’ve got to go to Ealing next week which is going to be a ridiculously hard fixture. I think they’re a brilliant side, so we’ve got that to work on. We’ve got to run ourselves up and get ready for a huge challenge at the weekend.”
