Prop Robin Hislop becomes the second new arrival of the summer as he returns to Castle Park from Ayr RFC. 

The 25-year-old returns having first signed for the Club ahead of the 2016/17 season from Rotherham Titans and enjoyed an impressive start to life as a Knight, featuring in each of the first fifteen games of the season before suffering a serious shoulder injury just after the new year. 

The injury saw Hislop sidelined for the remainder of the campaign before returning home to continue his rehab. Back fit Bomber has made waves in the Scottish Premiership and DoR Clive Griffiths moved quickly to bring him back to South Yorkshire.
