DON’T write us off just yet, club captain Steve Boden has told the Free Press.

Knights looked set to claim a massive Pool B scalp on Saturday - as they led Bedford Blues but eventually lost 17-16 to a last gasp converted try.

The defeat leaves Doncaster facing a huge task if they are to overhaul either Cornish Pirates or Bedford and claim a place in the semi-final knockout stage.

But Boden insists that the Knights’ season is far from over.

And he says they have the perfect chance to put things right this weekend when they travel to Bedford for the return fixture.

He said: “The lads were heartbroken to lose the way we did at the weekend.

“It’s the first time for a while the boys have felt a real togetherness on the field and we were pleased with the way we played.
