Knights Sign Centre Robbie Smith

The club are thrilled to announce the signing of centre Robbie Smith ahead of the 2022/23 season. 

Robbie arrives from Championship opposition Hartpury, having originally signed for their first team ahead of the 2019/20 season.

Discussing Robbie’s signing, Head Coach Steve Boden said: “We’re really excited about having Robbie at Doncaster Knights. He’s someone that I’ve looked to have on board for a couple of years and it’s great that he’s taken the plunge into full-time rugby.

“We feel that he’s got the skillset and the pace to really take our attack to another level – we’re excited to see what Robbie can do in a Doncaster shirt. First and foremost, beside his playing ability, he’s a good bloke so he should fit into our environment pretty seamlessly.”

Before graduating to Hartpury’s Championship side in the last three years, Robbie was previously an integral part of the university’s Super BUCS team. For his many features in a Hartpury shirt, Robbie was previously elected to the Rugby Paper’s Championship Team of the Season.

The 25-year-old centre is looking forward to throwing himself into training with a new squad and set of coaches, ready for another Championship season.

“I’m excited by the opportunity that Doncaster Knights have given me. I’m looking forward to challenging myself in a top full-time, positive environment and getting stuck in with a good group of boys.”

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