Doncaster Knights sign Ben Hooper on loan

Doncaster Knights have signed Ben Hooper from Leeds Carnegie on loan until the end of the season. The front-rower will join up with Clive Griffiths' side for the remainder of the Championship season.

Ben has been signed to cover tight-head prop, we were a bit light in that area after the injury suffered to Tom Francis and we believe he fits the mould of player we are after.

He is a very experienced player having played for both Rotherham and Leeds and he will give us solid back up at prop. He is a very welcome addition to the squad for the remainder of the Championship season.

We found out he was available at Leeds so we moved fast to sign him, he is a needed addition to the squad and will bring even more competition to our strong forward pack.”

– Clive Griffiths, Director of Professional Rugby
