Bomber to join Saracens on short-term loan.
4th September 2020
Loose-head Robin Bomber Hislop will spend the remainder of the 2019/20 Gallagher Premiership season with Saracens, having been loaned to the European Champions by the Knights
Saracens are in the middle of a hectic run which will see them play a gruelling four matches in two weeks, kicking off with Wasps at home tomorrow, Sale midweek, Exeter on Sunday and then a Champions Cup quarter final versus Leinster six days later.
28-year-old Hislop enjoyed a remarkable 2019/20 which saw him named in both the Championship Dream XV & The Rugby Paper Team of the Season and now has the opportunity to experience first team training alongside some of the biggest names in the sport.
Head Coach Steve Boden says that the loan is a great opportunity that can be beneficial to the Knights in the longer term. “This is a fantastic opportunity for Bomber to experience a world class environment.
“We are happy that the hard work and consistent performances Bomber has put in, especially last season, has been noticed.
“We are extremely proud of Bomber’s development and are looking forward to seeing him test himself in the Premiership, but more importantly we’re looking forward to seeing him back at Castle Park for the Knights this coming season.”
Bomber added. ‘I just want to make the most of the experience before coming back to Donny, hopefully we’re back in by then, and fly into pre-season.
“I thoroughly enjoy playing at Doncaster and hopefully I can give a good account of myself and come back a better player with some new ideas and experiences.”
