DONCASTER RLFC have signed Wakefield Trinity Wildcats prospect Tom Hodson.

The versatile 21 year-old has played wing and full-back and has also played rugby union at Sandal RUFC and for the Yorkshire U19s and U20s teams.

After a two-year spell within the Wildcats reserves, Hodson is excited about the move to Doncaster, saying: “I’m really looking forward to challenging myself and stepping up from the reserve grade.

“I predominantly play full-back in league but as a former rugby union fly-half and scrum-half I could adapt to the half-back position if required.

“Playing for Doncaster is a great opportunity for me and I will do my best to try and cement my place in a very competitive team.”
