It's tough at the top.
The standard of rugby in the English Championship (2nd tier) has improved in recent years. This has coincided with the downward spiral of Leeds Carnegie both on and off the pitch.
The point is...
So there we go, we have our first point of the season in our third game! Not saying much is it, but to be honest, it’s more than I actually thought we would have at this stage.

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
