KNIGHTS director of rugby Brett Davey is confident his side can outlast any opposition over a full 80 minute period.

In what has become a familiar pattern this season, Doncaster found themselves behind at the break against London Scottish only to produce an excellent performance in the second half.

But unlike the trip to Cornish Pirates and last week’s British and Irish Cup clash at Nottingham, the Knights managed to overturn the deficit to secure a 37-28 win.

And Davey insists it is staying power that ensures his side stay competitive.

He said: “It is a bit of a concern we keep finding ourselves behind at the break but we’re confident that if we’re only a few points behind at half time we’ll win the match because our fitness levels are so good right now.

“We know we’ve got to start games better than we did last weekend but it’s still positive that we’re not out of games by half time.

“If we could sort out the first half performances I think we’d be a test for anyone.
