Hope this is good news for them

However if he thinks the supporters will form a strategic alliance he is doomed to disappointment. Leeds thought this with the union team and they were very quickly and forcibly informed otherwise.

Derby City - proud to be flying the flag for Rugby League in the Midlands for over 24 years.

Doncaster are the epitomy of boom and bust, unfortunately their boom is pretty silent.

The Dons have been well run for the past 4 years, but the owners who are not wealthy have taken the club as far as they can !

Hopefully this tie up will get us into SL2 or the top 3 in the Championship !

Doncaster houses many thriving business's on quality estates, they play in what could be a great RL stadium - this could be a great move for RL in South Yorkshire now that Sheffield play inside a dilapidated Dog track

This has been on the cards for a while with the Dons already using the Rovers Admin for certain aspects of their day to day running, the last few years have been a very stable period with Carl and Co taking on board the Eagles method of building and basically copying it, the advantage Donny have now is the backing of two very wealthy businessmen (Parky will be backing them for Super League) and a excellent ground.


Carlsberg don't do Soldiers, but if they did, they would probably be Brits.

What is SL2?

Is this a breakaway league?
