YORK Knights look set to be bolstered by the returns of full-back Will Dagger and loose forward Jordan Thompson for Sunday's trip to Barrow Raiders (3pm).

Neither have featured for the Knights in the opening two rounds of the Betfred Championship season after serving their respective two-match bans following their ill-discipline against Sheffield Eagles in the Betfred Challenge Cup.

Thompson was handed two separate one-match bans for his double sin-bin, whilst Dagger received the same length of suspension after a headbutt.


Winger Brad Ward, who has spent the beginning of the league season with dual registration partners Newcastle Thunder, and Ronan Michael, who was knocked out in last weekend’s defeat to Toulouse Olympique, both drop out.

Nikau Williams will serve the second of his four-match suspension after his Grade E charge.

York Knights squad to face Barrow: Bailey, Brown, Dagger, Daley, Dee, Field, Fitzsimmons, Harris, Harrison, Hingano, Jubb, Keinhorst, Lineham, Nicholson-Watton, Pemberton, Reynolds, Severs, Ta'ai, Teanby, Thompson, Towse.
