Doncaster land PNG halfback

Doncaster have completed the loan signing of Featherstone Rovers halfback Watson Boas until the end of the 2019 season.

The PNG international has featured regularly for Fev since his move to the club from PNG Hunters in the off-season, but has now joined the promotion-hunting Dons.

Head coach Richard Horne said: “When we heard of Watson’s availability we were keen to get the deal done, he is a quality player who will do well for us.

“He’s someone who will get the fans off their seats and I’m sure they are all looking forward to seeing him in action.

“He has played a few games in England so is used to the conditions now, and will only get better when the tracks get faster throughout the year.”
