Doncaster Knights sign David McIlwaine for second time
Doncaster Knights have signed full back David McIlwaine until the end of the season.
The 25-year-old, formerly of Ulster, Bristol and Yorkshire Carnegie, returns to Castle Park for a second spell after finishing as the club’s top points scorer in 2011/12.
McIlwaine will combine his playing and studying commitments at Leeds Beckett University with Knights before joining the club on a full time basis.
“Dave has to combine his training with us and Leeds Beckett University who are still in the BUCS competition and play Hartpury College a week on Wednesday in the national quarter finals.
“Once his commitments with the University have concluded he will be with us on a full time basis but in the meantime he will balance the two.
“He’s got a good kicking game and is not short of a yard or two.
“I know he’ll be well-suited to our game plan and style of play and I just hope he can bring all his experience to the table and help us out.”
