Match Preview


Presley ready for Dragons encounter

Jonny Presley is fully aware of the challenge that awaits York City Knights as they travel to Catalan Dragons in the Tetley's Challenge Cup fifth round.

The Kingstone Press Championship outfit defeated French opposition in Toulouse in the last round but half-back Presley is realistic about his side's chances of toppling the Dragons.

"It's exciting to get an opportunity to play against Super League opposition and test yourself against the best," he said. "If we were to win it would certainly be one of the highlights of my career.

"Cup shocks do happen, you only have to look back to last year when Featherstone beat Castleford, but everyone at the club realises the size of the task.

"You always think 'what if' and it would be incredible to reach the quarter-finals but for now we are just concentrating on doing the best we can and enjoying the experience."
