Doncaster have completed the permanent signing of halfback Watson Boas on a two year deal from Featherstone Rovers.

Boas spent the majority of 2019 on loan in South Yorkshire. and scored nine tries in 17 matches during that time.

It’s great to have signed a permanent deal with the Dons, the club made me feel at home from the moment I joined on loan,” he said. “Richard Horne and Carl Hall made it clear that they wanted to keep me here, and that made it an easy decision to stay.

“While my focus now is on doing well for PNG, I am already excited about returning for pre-season and having a really good year in 2020.”

Doncaster head coach Richard Horne added: “I’m really pleased to have Watson joining us on a permanent deal for the next two years.

“His ability to play in the halves or at hooker makes him a key player for us and he showed last season how much his pace can hurt teams.

“He settled into the group really well and speaking with him he is ready to push on and improve even further with us next year.”
