Knights Sign Back Row Jack Digby

The club are thrilled to announce the signing of back row Jack Digby ahead of the 2023/24 season. 

Jack arrives in Doncaster from current Championship Cup holders Ealing Trailfinders, whom he originally joined in 2021.

Discussing Jack’s switch to the Knights, Head Coach Steve Boden said: “We’re really happy that Jack has come on board. We feel like he’s got a lot of growth to come in his game and we’re excited to see him grow in a Doncaster shirt.

“He’s a big man that’s strong in the collision on both sides of the ball. We know a couple of people that know Jack and they speak very highly of him as a person, so we’re excited to see him run out for the Knights and see how he fits in with the rest of the boys.”                                 

Jack, who was originally born in London but grew up in Australia, scored 5 tries in his 2 seasons with the Trailfinders in the capital.

Before making the switch to England and the Championship, the 26-year-old played for Sydney Rays in the National Rugby Championship as well as Eastern Suburbs in the Shute Shield competition out in Oz.

With an ability to play at blindside flanker or number 8, Jack will provide some sought-after selection competition in the Knights back row.

The Aussie back rower is looking forward to immersing himself in a rugby environment which will best suit his abilities and seeing what the squad can produce as a unit.

“I was drawn to signing for Doncaster Knights due to a style of rugby that suits my physicality, and the chance to really develop behind top class coaches.

“I’m looking forward to seeing how close we can get as a group and how successful we can be.”

We look forward to seeing what Jack can bring to the Knights throughout 2023/24.

As Jack is an incoming player, there are player sponsorship opportunities available. Please email for more information.
