Yorkshire Carnegie earned their second win in the Championship Cup against Doncaster thanks to tries from Dan Temm, Chris Elder and Harry Davey.

Director of Rugby, Chris Stirling, made six changes ahead of the game, which was played on the road at Hull Ionians. Pete Lucock returned to captain the team and Dan Temm also came back into the starting line up.

Jacob Umaga, on loan from Wasps and playing in his third game, got Carnegie on the scoreboard after three minutes with a penalty after Doncaster were punished at the scrum and he doubled the lead minutes later with his second.

The Knights responded by almost getting the first try, but the referee pulled back for obstruction as Paul Jarvis looked like he had claimed a try.

The visitors cut Carnegie’s lead with their own penalty on 14 minutes from Dougie Flockhart, but Umaga soon cancelled that out with his third penalty a minute later.

Good defence from Carnegie kept he Knights from gaining momentum in attack and they were able to show their own threat in the Doncaster half when Dan Temm crossed for the opening try. From the scrum Joe Buckle was able to turn the ball over and Temm collected the ball and found a gap to sprint through. Umaga continued his impressive display with the conversion to make it 16-3 after 30 minutes and then added his fourth penalty six minutes later.

Carnegie built on this lead when Academy star Harry Davey intercepted a Jarvis pass from 40 metres out and raced through for the second try of the game just before the break. Umaga converted to see his team go in 29-3 at half time.

Just five minutes into the second half Carnegie were forced to make a replacement, with Umaga suffering from a thigh injury. Olly Fox came on to replace him and switched with Elder on the wing who moved to full back.

Doncaster were able to challenge Carnegie more in the second half, but the hosts looked strong in defence.

Chris Elder was driven over for Carnegie’s third try on 60 minutes and this time Jade Te Rure added the conversion.

Carnegie were reduced to 14 men when Dan Temm was sin binned for persistent infringements and Doncaster were able to make the most of the extra man when Rory Pitman was powered over the line from a rolling maul in the corner. Flockhart was unable to add the conversion.

Replacement Will Britton was then shown a yellow card for a should charge, leaving Carnegie briefly with just thirteen players on the pitch, and this was enough time for the Knights to score again through Curtis Wilson. The former Carnegie player sprinted away down the wing for a try in the corner to make it 33-15. Once again Flockhart was unable to add the conversion

The visitors continued their strong finish to the game when from the driving maul Ben Hunter was able to crash over in the final stages of the game, but the Knights had left there comeback to late to claim anything from the game and Carnegie claimed the honours in their third game in the Championship Cup.
