The Knights will start the 2012/13 Championship season away at Plymouth Albion.

Brett Davey’s side will make the long trip on the weekend of September 1.

In what looks set to be the first ‘Friday Knights’ fixture, last season’s table toppers Bristol will visit Castle Park on September 7.

Local rivals Rotherham Titans will play host on the weekend of November 3 with the reverse fixture on March 8.

The Knights are set for a weekend in the Channel Islands in April when they visit newly promoted Jersey on the 13th.

All fixtures are subject to change and are pending the outcome of any appeal from London Welsh over the refusal of their application to join the Premiership.
