Kieran Cross says the Dons are feeling confident with a week to go until the Betfred League One opener against Coventry Bears.

The game at the Keepmoat Stadium is a repeat of last year's opening fixture, and Cross wants to get off to a positive start.

"There is a good mood in the camp, we've been working hard in training and everyone is itching to get out on the field now," he said.

"You can tell straight away with the experience we've brought in that some of the lads have been involved at a higher level and have been in the game a long time.

"Richard has changed some things and brought in the players he wanted, i think the boys have really bought into it and we're a more professional outfit this year."

Now in his third year with the Dons, Cross wants to establish himself further with his hometown club after finishing last season as joint top tryscorer, alongside Jason Tali.

"The first couple of years here were a learning curve for me, now i've got to grips with the speed of this level of rugby i think this year is the next step for me," he added.

"There are only a few Doncaster lads in the team now so we're close to the fans, we want them to know how much we care and that we're giving it everything every week.

"I think this year could be great for us, i'd recommend all fans to come down and support us as they could make the difference."
