Knights Sign Tighthead Prop Mak Wilson

The club are thrilled to announce the signing of tighthead prop Mak Wilson ahead of the 2022/23 season. 

Mak arrives from Premiership side Harlequins where he made 5 appearances for the established top-flight side since joining in July 2020.

Discussing Mak’s signing, Head Coach Steve Boden said: “We’re delighted to get Mak Wilson on board with us. He’s a young prop who has shown he’s got a good scrummaging ability for a player of such a young age.

“We’re looking to further develop Mak’s game around the field and see where he can take his rugby as an ambitious young player – all of this means he fits in to what we look for at Doncaster Knights.”

Mak’s rugby career originally began at Duns Rugby Club in the Scottish borders. He developed through their ranks before making the switch to Melrose for 2018/19 and then featuring for their Super6 side, Southern Knights. His work there afforded him the opportunity to earn Scottish U20 caps as he excelled for the side in the U20 Six Nations in 2020.

The 21-year-old front rower is relishing the idea of benefiting from the positive environment fostered by the Knights squad and moving a little closer to home at the same time.

“When the opportunity to come to Doncaster Knights came up, I was buzzing. By all accounts, Doncaster is a club with a really good culture, and finishing second last year in the table, really seem to be going places.

“Plus, it’s a chance for me to move back north and be closer to home, in a proper city with my kind of people.”

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