Yorkshire Carnegie coach Tommy McGee says the players have been honest and open in their reaction to last week’s defeat at Doncaster and he expects to see a response on Sunday against Nottingham.

McGee's side were well beaten by the Knights last Saturday on the back to two positive performances against Bristol and a win at home over Moseley. However, the coach says there has been no knee jerk reactions after the loss last weekend.

"We have made some changes to the team because clearly last week's performance was not good enough. But this group are an honest bunch of guys and they were the first to hold their hands up to that. It was a bad day and not representative of what we want to produce and most importantly what we know we can produce. These players have shown on numerous occasions that they have the talent to challenge the very best in this division and we need to remember that as well as fixing up what went wrong last week. 

"We have been able to bring in some new faces in the last few weeks which is timely because we have a number of injuries in key positions like second row and in the backline. We know Nottingham will be tough this week, they have had a great season but we will be looking to produce a performance that we can all be proud of," added McGee.
