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.”
