Gulf in class evident as Doncaster Knights thrashed by Northampton Saints
and live on Freeview channel 276
The Knights were competitive in the first half and at times in the second, but, overall, failed to take the few attacking opportunities they created in the Northampton 22.
Excellent tries by full back Harry Davey on 17 minutes and then by winger George Simpson on 64 showed what Doncaster were capable of.
But after going behind 28-7 at half time when they were still competitive, following the interval, the floodgates opened with Northampton scoring more than 50 points.
This was Doncaster’s second defeat by a Premiership club in the competition in which they won two games out of five.
It will be interesting to see what effect this heavy defeat will have as the Knights prepare for their first league game in the Championship against Hartpury at Castle Park in a fortnight.
