Doncaster have added Reiss Cullen for the 2019/20 season after the scrum-half signed a two-year-deal.
The 22-year-old joins from Bristol Bears, where he made 10 appearances, three coming in the British & Irish Cup and scored two tries during his time at Ashton Gate.
Reiss also featured for Cardiff Blues and Cornish Pirates in the 2017/18 season after signing from Scottish semi-professional side Watsonians at the start of the campaign.
The scrum-half arrived at Bristol from Watsonians and was a big part of the first team in Edinburgh during his three years there. He helped the club regain promotion to the top flight in 2015/16 and played in every match in 2016/17 as the team stayed up in the Scottish Premiership.
Director of Rugby Clive Griffiths was delighted with the latest addition to the Knights for the upcoming season.
“Reiss is a great player for us and is an explosive scrum-half and has a very good experience and schooling down at Bristol with Pat Lam and his coaching staff.
He will bring an all rounded skillset and will certainly provide some healthy competition to the number nine jersey with Tom James and Sam Pocklington.”
While the youngster is excited about getting started at Castle Park.
“The Knights play a brand of rugby that suits my playing style and I think I can learn a lot from the coaches and players at the club.
It will be a good challenge for myself in a different environment and will be good for my personal development.
I have been at Bristol for the last two years and haven’t had the consistent game time, I am looking for regular playing time and to test myself in the Championship. I am hoping the club can push up the table for a top three spot as there is more than enough talent to do so.”
