WILL JUBB admitted that he was "very humbled" by the reception he received during his 100th York City Knights match.

Jubb reached the milestone in York's 38-6 victory over Newcastle Thunder at the LNER Community Stadium.

Having completed 80 minutes over recent weeks, head coach James Ford afforded Jubb a break, and an ovation from the supporters, in the second half.

"I've said it before, but the club means everything to me and my family," said Jubb.

"It was great to have them here and see the support that I've got at the end.

"The people who stayed behind to see it (the shirt presentation), I hope they can see how much it means to me playing on the pitch, because that meant a lot to me, them staying around at the end.

"And the reception I got when I came off was very humbling."

Even against full-time opposition in Newcastle, the Knights never looked like losing in a one-sided affair.

"We defended our line brilliantly and I thought we were really good," enthused the hooker.

"Our forwards were fantastic, we really built into the game and we deserved the lead.

"I thought we were really good (through) every single player."

York now sit third in the Betfred Championship, having recorded six wins from their first eight league matches, losing only to big-spending top two Featherstone Rovers and Leigh Centurions.

Jubb insisted: "We're just going one week to the next. But every time we go out there and put a good performance in, that breeds energy and confidence in the team.

"I think we're in a good spot at the moment but there's still a lot of improvement in us and we're not resting on our laurels.

"We've identified some areas where we need to better and we'll keep working at that.

"It's certainly been a very positive start to the season."
