Foley has a plan to upset Carnegie
CHARLIE Foley is hoping Doncaster can continue their winning start to the season with a second derby success in the space of eight days.
In beating Rotherham 44-0 last weekend, the Knights did a demolition job every bit as good as the bulldozers who’ve knocked down the famous South Stand at Headingley, the three-sided venue for today’s game against Yorkshire Carnegie.
Foley said: “It’s a good ground and I really like playing there. I’ve won a Varsity match at Headingley when I was a student in Leeds but, against Carnegie themselves, I’ve been there twice with Moseley and last season with Rotherham and got a hiding each time.
“It’s their first home game of the season and they’ll want to get off to a good start, and the fact it’s a derby always adds a bit of spice. But we go there confident that we have the game-plan to get a result.”
Foley, starting at fullback in an unchanged Knights XV, will square up against his former Col- ston’s schoolmate George Watkins who is on the wing for Carnegie.
Head coach James Lowes has made only one change to the team that beat Nottingham last time out with winger Harry Davies, who joined on loan last week from Bath, getting his first chance to impress.
There are three more changes on the bench for Yorkshire Carnegie. Mike Mayhew and Richard Beck return from injury to replace Ross Graham and Lewis Wilson. Prop Elliot Millar-Mills, who has joined on loan from Caldy, could make his debut after replacing James Thraves.
