This Friday night, under the Castle Park lights and in view of the Sky Sports cameras, Carnegie face Doncaster Knights in the Greene King Championship. The match also counts as one of the 6 Yorkshire Regiment Trophy matches.
Guess the attendance - half term report.
We have now played 5 of our scheduled 11 home games this season – note that with no play-offs and hopefully no bankruptcies the 11 match total should not change – therefore it is a good time to review progress to date.
Week 11 preview
This weekend the Championship reaches the halfway point in the season when the eleventh round of games is played. As usual there are some tasty fixtures on offer but the one which was historically a clash of the titans promises to be a bit of a damp squib as bottom club Rotherham visit the Emerald stadium.
Over the hills and far away
This weekend there are a number of interesting fixtures in the Championship programme. Three of these involve the Yorkshire clubs. Donny are at Ealing, Roth host Scottish and we are off to my favourite tax haven (Jersey).
High flying Bristol Beaufighters shoot down Carnegie

Looking down the Carnegie team sheet I am always a little happier when it contains both Mayhew’s in the squad
The regular championship resumes this weekend with the seventh round of fixtures. Bristol is four points clear at the top of the table and Rotherham is rooted to the foot of it with only one bonus point to it's name.
Same again please.
Yorkshire Carnegie went down to Jersey for the opening round of the B&I cup and were beaten by a score of 32-3. We may well be disappointed with the score but Jimmy Lowes made some bold decisions last Friday and they appear to have paid off......
