Have we done enough?

It's that time of year!
The rugby season is over for most clubs in the Championship. For four clubs, including our own Yorkshire Carnegie, the past 8 months was just the precursor to the main event.

The semi final first legs are this coming weekend....
Time to front up
So, we are there. A semi Final place in the Championship play offs, and the chance to win promotion to the ‘Promised Land’. London Irish were always the favourites, and apart from a late blip at Jersey, would have gone through the entire season undefeated. They are worthy favourites to return to the Premiership, but, for possibly the first time this season, the pressure is on. They know, that one under par performance could see their dreams shattered.
