Andy Foster attracted by ‘one of the best grounds in the Championship’ when joining the Knights.

New signing Andy Foster agreed to join the Knights this summer after being attracted by the ground and brand of rugby played at Castle Park.

“I would probably say without a doubt it is one of the best grounds in the Championship and then the brand of rugby that Doncaster play which is with a big forward pack, scrum and set-piece, that is what I like about rugby and are the reasons that attracted me to join.

My game is that I like the set-piece and I do what I can around the field, I like the scrums and mauls as most props do.”

The 27-year-old arrives from Yorkshire Carnegie having made 25 appearances for the Leeds based side last season and believes the move to South Yorkshire will help his development in his career.

“I knew a few of the boys here already and they talked highly of the club and the direction that it is going so I thought it was a good step at the right time to step forward in my career and push onward with the team in the Championship.”

The prop played against Doncaster four times last season, but is now keen to see the Knights push forwards up the Championship table and is looking to make a positive impact off the pitch for the club as well.

“My ambitions for next season are to take the club forward and become an important part of the squad and not only on the field but off the field as well, I would like to build a rapport with the fans and the rest of the players.

I want to help push the club up the table and after speaking with Clive and others at the club, they want to be aiming high for the top 2 and push on.”
