The best Tykes match - ever!
During the bleak summer months when news from the club has been very sparse my thoughts have turned to the Tykes' games which left me breathless, elated or in a state of rapture. Here are just some of them:- Powergen Cup final, Harlequins home win to avoid relegation, HC cup win v Perpignan & the relegation defeat at Northampton
The state of the game
It’s been an eventful summer one way for us, but in a way outside our bubble the game is changing around us, some may say for the better, I personally say for the worse...
This weekend the fixtures were announced for the Championship next season. Tykes fans will be pleased to know that we start with a home game against Bedford.
The best Tyke - ever!
At a time when the club is in dire straits I found myself looking back at some of the moments that made watching the Tykes a special thing and, of course, the players who lit up the Headingley stage.
The beat goes on.
After entering our summer of discontent very little has changed, for better or worse, for Carnegie fans anxiously waiting for news of the club's future. The news from the media department at the Emerald Stadium has been par for the course - zilch.
Top half finish is do-able
Yorkshire Carnegie has a weekend off. The lads will either be chilling or watching the climax to the 6-Nations competition. Last weekend the squad gave the runaway league leaders a bloody nose. What is in store for us next?
Cup semi final at the Madstad
Next weekend the Jersey boys are in town. It is a long haul from the Channel Islands so the Reds will be looking for points and will not want to go home empty handed. This match has the hallmarks of a good tussle.
Crunchtime for Carnegie
The turnaround in the form and fortunes of Yorkshire Carnegie under the guidance of Chris Stirling is there for all to see. The lads are unbeaten since the 19th of November and recorded a 3rd consecutive league win at the RAG last weekend. On Sunday the Trailfinders hit town and, for us, it is crunchtime!
Yorkshire 18 Cornwall 13
If this fixture had taken place in November I would have arrived at the ground expecting the high flying Pirates to bury us by a veritable cricket score. However, despite our lowly league position, there has been a definite shift in perception about our capability to handle teams above us in the league. I was looking forward to a win today!
