Knights Sign Back Row Seb Nagle-Taylor

The club are thrilled to announce the signing of back row Seb Nagle-Taylor ahead of the 2023/24 season. 

Seb joins Doncaster Knights from Championship rivals Cornish Pirates whom he joined ahead of the 2022/23 season.

Discussing Seb’s signing at Castle Park, Head Coach Steve Boden said: “We’re happy that Seb has come on board. A couple of guys that have been in our environment already know Seb and they speak very highly of him as a person which is probably one of the most important parts in recruitment.

“He’s experienced – he’s played in the league before – so he can bring that experience to our forward pack. He probably offers something a little bit different to what the rest of our back rowers do. He’s very explosive, got a lot of pace and is very good with the ball in hand.

“So, we’re looking forward to seeing Seb integrate with the squad and see how his rugby progresses off the back of that.”

Born in Winchester but spending his childhood in Hong Kong, Seb first played for Valley RFC Academy at age 9 before going on to captain Eastbourne College’s First XV and 7s team.

Developing with game-time, the pack member gained representative honours for England County U20s, England Students and England 7s.

In terms of Championship experience, the 29-year-old has represented Bedford Blues, Jersey Reds, Rotherham Titans and Hartpury prior to his time at Cornish Pirates, so he is well-versed with the requirements of playing in the league.

As a result of his time with Hartpury, Seb was loaned to Gloucester throughout 2020/21 leading to him officially signing with the Premiership club for 2021/22.

The powerful forward is raring to go in the Knights environment with a helpful head start of already knowing a couple of his new teammates.

“Doncaster Knights have developed an exciting style of play over the last few seasons which was definitely something that drew me to the club. In addition to that, the facilities are one of, if not the, best in the in league.

“Fortunately, I already knew a few lads up here which has made for a smooth transition and a warm welcome.”

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

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