Knights Sign Back Row Jared Cardew

The club are thrilled to announce the signing of back row Jared Cardew ahead of the 2022/23 season. 

Jared arrives from Championship competition Richmond, where he made 12 appearances – scoring 4 tries – throughout the 2021/22 season having joined the capital side ahead of the 2021/22 season from Exeter University.

Discussing Jared’s signing, Head Coach Steve Boden said: “We see a lot of potential in Jared. He’s got a good all-round game – he’s strong defensively and is good with ball in-hand.

“He’s young, hungry and ambitious, and he’s looking to make a change from part-time rugby to full-time rugby, so we’re hoping to see where his ambition takes him.”

Jared made his Championship debut in Richmond’s fixture against Cornish Pirates in Penzance in September 2021 for the first round of last season. Building confidence and momentum throughout the season, Jared was ultimately named ‘Most Improved Player’ at Richmond’s End of Season Awards.

The 23-year-old forward is looking forward to making the most of the development opportunities which being a member of the Knights squad will hopefully afford to him.

“I’m happy to have joined Doncaster Knights as it’s a really exciting club that’s challenging at the top of the Championship, and the full-time set-up will hopefully allow me to develop and grow as a player.”

We look forward to seeing what Jared can bring to the squad throughout 2022/23.
