Official Report / Commentary


Knights struggles continue

York City Knights\' terrible start to the season continued as they lost 30-16 to Batley in the Co-operative Championship.

The Bulldogs established an 18-6 lead at the interval thanks to tries from Alex Bretherton, Daley Williams and Gareth Potts and a perfect set of conversions from Gareth Moore.

James Houston had put York on the board and John Davies had them back in contention but further converted tries from Moore and Bretherton killed the contest with a late Paul King try nothing more than a consolation.
