Sam joined the Dons ahead of the 2015 season, signing from Australian Q Cup outfit Central Queensland Capras.  The 22 year-old came through the ranks at Wakefield Trinity Wildcats before making the move down under, impressing during his time abroad.  Despite Doncaster suffering relegation in 2015, Sam was one of the clubs standout performers in his debut season, making 19 appearances in the Kingstone Press Championship, scoring six tries.  Head coach Gary Thornton saw enough potential in the winger or centre to offer him a new deal for the 2016 season and he will be a crucial piece in the jigsaw if the Dons are to challenge in League 1 this year.
