The Dons have signed England international Rangi Chase on a deal until the end of the 2019 campaign.

The half-back will start training with the club on Tuesday May 14, and is eligible for selection to play from July 14.

Chase said: “It feels good to be back, I’m really looking forward to getting involved and helping the lads at the business end of the season. 

“I’m excited as I’ve had a long time out, now that it’s not too far away I’m working hard to get my fitness levels as high as possible.

“The training will help me to get back up to speed, I want to try and get ready for July and get to know the boys as well.”

Chase was named as the Super League Man of Steel in 2011 while at Castleford Tigers, and chief executive Carl Hall is looking forward to seeing him show his skills at the Keepmoat Stadium.

He said: “We’re delighted to be able to bring a player of Rangi’s quality to the club, he is someone I have known for a number of years and I have always stayed in contact with him.

“We’re giving him an opportunity to show what he’s capable of in a Dons shirt, and without putting any pressure on him - I believe he’s the biggest signing this club has made since Tony Kemp.

“I hope everyone is excited as I am to see him play.”
