Kieran Dixon: 4

Another difficult afternoon at Wembley for Dixon. His handling let him down in the first half, particularly against Dane Chisholm's kicking.

Ben Jones-Bishop: 7

The winger came up with a brilliant finish for York's first try and was made consistent half-breaks against the Fev line to put the Knights on the front foot.

Tyme Dow-Nikau: 5

Struggled to get into the game on his return. The centre was unable to ground Mikey Lewis' grubber early on when York looked on top.

Having been brushed aside by John Davies for Nu Brown's try, Bass redeemed himself by cleanly picking up Hall's error to race clear after half time.

Perry Whiteley: 7

The winger bagged himself a Wembley score at the death with a brilliant 90m intercept finish. Like Jones-Bishop, he carried consistently well from the back.

Danny Washbrook: 6

A calm head through the middle of the field. Less involved than he was against London but controlled proceedings.
