The Dons have added to their ranks for the 2020 campaign after the arrival of centre Sam Smeaton on a two-year deal.

The 30-year-old was born in Doncaster and brings with him a wealth of experience at Championship level, having played more than 200 times in the second tier.

His most recent club was Batley Bulldogs, where he made 25 appearances throughout the 2019 campaign.

Smeaton said: “I’m really excited about joining the club, being from Doncaster made it a big draw for me and also the fact that my dad played here as well.

“After meeting Rich and Carl they really sold their vision for the club to me, it’s an exciting time to be coming here.

“I’m really looking forward to getting going in pre-season now, and hopefully we can push for promotion to the Championship in 2020.”

Head coach Richard Horne said: “Sam is a very experienced Championship player and is very strong and aggressive in the way he plays.

“His experience and knowledge of the game can help us move forward both in training and also during games.”
