Hooker Tom Doughty joins Doncaster Knights from Premiership side, Bath Rugby.
The 26-year-old front rower, who was with Bath for 4 seasons, made 24 senior appearances for the side in domestic and European competitions. His original signing with the club was inspired by breakout performances for the University of Bath in the BUCS Super Rugby league.
The former BUCS captain, who represented his university between 2017 and 2019, debuted for Bath against Newcastle Falcons in 2018 and, having been known for his scoring prowess at university level, notched up a couple of tries at a higher level – including a try against Toulon on the road in European competition in late 2022.
Following his departure from Bath at the conclusion of the 2022/23 season, Tom headed to the southern hemisphere to chalk up some game-time with Australian side, Sydney University,
The hard-working hooker is relishing the idea of both benefiting from and adding to the environment fostered by the current Knights squad.
