21st June 2022
The club are thrilled to announce the signing of lock Ehize Ehizode ahead of the 2022/23 season.
Ehize arrives from fellow Championship London Scottish where he featured frequently for the capital side throughout the 2021/22 season, having joined the club last summer from National One side, Chinnor.
Discussing Ehize’s signing, Head Coach Steve Boden said: “We’re delighted to get Ehize on board at Doncaster Knights. He’s a big man whose got great physical attributes for a second row and he just needs to work on his technical side of the game.
“We feel like he’s got all of the raw attributes to really kick on and see where his rugby and his ambition can take him. He’s a really good guy who we know will fit in well in our environment, and help enhance it, which is one of the most important points.”
Ehize’s career originally began as a back-rower before moving forward to the second row. He developed through the Wasps Academy, a side which he represented at U18 and A-league level. He also spent time in the Bristol Bears academy before also experiencing playing for Dings Crusaders and Hartpury.
The 24-year-old lock is focusing on utilising all of the opportunities and learnings that his time in Doncaster can afford him in the hopes of bettering his game at a higher level.
“Doncaster Knights is a club which is known for moulding forwards into class Premiership players. As a lock, I want to challenge myself at a higher level to excel in my position and for the benefit of my team this season.”
We look forward to seeing what Ehize can bring to the squad throughout 2022/23.
