Josh Peters to Join Premiership Side Newcastle Falcons
12th May 2022
We can announce that lock Josh Peters will leave Doncaster Knights to join Premiership side, Newcastle Falcons, ahead of the 2022/23 season.
The 26-year-old second row originally signed for the Knights from French Nationale side Stade Dijonnais in July 2021.
Featuring in the Knights lock-paring in 18 out of 20 league games this season, along with 3 Championship Cup appearances, Josh has been a safe pair of hands at copious lineouts and his power in a maul or over a breakdown have been valuable on many occasions.
A unique character to have amongst the squad, Josh has thoroughly immersed himself in the Knights culture and so, his teammates are delighted for him to have the opportunity to take the step up to the Premiership for next season.
“My time at Doncaster Knights has been the best year of my career. I have learned so much from the coaches throughout the season and have met the best bunch of boys ever.”
We wish Josh all the very best in the Premiership and look forward to welcoming him back to Castle Park as a supporter in the future.
