Yorkshire Carnegie coach Tommy McGee says he and his team are expecting a tough battle when they travel to Castle Park on Saturday to face local rivals Doncaster Knights.

The Knights won the previous meeting this season at Headingley Carnegie but are struggling at the wrong end of the Greene King IPA Championship at present. However, McGee says that his team know exactly what to expect. 

He commented, "Doncaster is a tough place to go, they pushed Worcester very close and played very well against them recently and knowing their coaches and players, this will be a game they will have targeted. Like us, they don't want to be where they are and we need to make sure our intensity levels are ready right from the start. Doncaster started the season really well, and were one of the form teams when we last met and they deserved to win on the day. It is a local derby but for us it is about backing up what we did well against Moseley and getting another win on the board."
