10th August 2019

Frankie Mariano says he can't wait to be back out on the field in a Dons shirt.

The back-rower returns against London Skolars this weekend, in what will be his first appearance of 2019 after overcoming a shoulder problem.

He said: "It's been a long time coming but now that it's close I can't wait to be back out there with the lads again.

"No player wants to be injured and it has been a really frustrating year for myself, but I've had to stay patient and make sure I was ready.

"The staff have been great with me and a lot of work has gone in to getting me prepared to come back and be able to make an impact."

With four games of the regular season remaining, Mariano is hoping to play a big part in the Dons promotion push.

He added: "It's a crucial time of the year and we're all giving everything to try and make it a successful season for the club.

"I came in midway through last season and we went on a really good run, hopefully we can put a few wins together to go into the play-off games with some momentum."
