KNIGHTS have been on the buses this week to promote their new Friday night fixtures at Castle Park.

The club teamed up with local bus operator First to encourage fans in Doncaster to hop on the bus and sample the evening atmosphere at their Armthorpe Road ground.

Knights host Bristol in their first home game of the season under the Castle Park lights this Friday (7.45pm).

First bus service routes 81 & 82, which drop off in the vicinity of the stadium, run every 10-15 minutes from Doncaster, Intake and Armthorpe.

Doncaster have broken with tradition to schedule the majority of their Championship fixtures on a Friday night this season.

The club hopes to attract a new younger audience, while director of rugby Brett Davey wants the night-time atmosphere to help his team on the pitch.
