Knights Sign Back Row Sam Daly
23rd June 2022
The club are thrilled to announce the signing of back row Sam Daly ahead of the 2022/23 season.
Sam arrives from Watsonians in the Scottish Super6 league where he excelled in his position, garnering attention from Edinburgh Rugby who subsequently signed him on a partnership deal with Watsonians.
Discussing Sam’s signing, Head Coach Steve Boden said: “We’re really excited to be working with Sam to see how far he can take his rugby, as he’s got a raw ability. He’s a very dynamic ball carrier and very explosive into contact.
“We feel he fits the style of rugby we want to play. And the character that he is, I think he’ll fit in really well at Doncaster Knights. So, we’re excited to see him play.”
Sam originally joined Watsonians having not played rugby throughout the repeated COVID-19 lockdowns. Prior to his time in the Scottish capital, the young forward spent four seasons with Plymouth Albion RFC.
The 24-year-old back rower is excited to add his best to the Doncaster Knights shirt alongside his new teammates.
“I chose to sign with the Knights because of, firstly, the history of the club and its illustrious reputation.
“I also believe that it will be the perfect place, with the coaches and players that Doncaster have, they will in turn help me to develop as a player and play a big role in my career.”
We look forward to seeing what Sam can bring to the squad throughout 2022/23.
