Sam Wilson will make his first competitive start for Doncaster Knights today in their British & Irish Cup clash at home to Bedford Blues (2.30pm).

Wilson has joined Doncaster on loan from National Two North side Hull Ionians.

He featured for the Knights during pre-season and scored in the win over Swansea at Castle Park.

Wilson’s inclusion is one of several changes as Clive Griffiths shuffles his pack ahead of a blank weekend next week.

In the back-line Tomasi Palu and Jamie Lennard start in place of Bruno Bravo and Paul Roberts, while Tom Davies, Jack Bergmanas and Colin Quigley make up a new front row.

Knights are today looking to make it three wins out of three in the B&I Cup.
