Good afternoon and welcome to The Sportsman’s LIVE coverage of Keighley Cougars vs Doncaster in Betfred League 1. We should be in for a thrilling afternoon of rugby league which sees the two clubs that faced each other in that dramatic play-off collide once more. 

In the build up to this one, we spoke to Keighley’s Head of Rugby Andrew Henderson in the build-up to this one and he was determined to put things right. 

“The goal is promotion to the Championship, that is the remit the club has given me and the head coach Rhys Lovegrove,” Henderson told The Sportsman. 

The Cougars almost made it up to The Championship last season but were stopped in their tracks by that stunning Doncaster comeback. 

“Falling at the final hurdle I feel was a blessing in disguise,” adds Henderson. 

“I didn’t feel the club was ready for the step up and nor was the team. A further 12 months gives us a better chance.”

The Cougars have found themselves flying out of the blocks with a huge 32-6 win over Oldham, with Alix Stephenson, Aaron Levy, Lewis Young and Nathan Roebuck all finding their way over the line in a huge opening day. 

Doncaster also got themselves plenty of points on the board in their first game of the season. A 48-20 win over the recently rebranded Midlands Hurricanes (formerly Coventry Bears) puts them ironically just two points ahead of Keighley on points difference, with the Dons on 28 and the Cougars on 26, like last season’s scoreline.
