NEWS | Boas signs permanent Dons deal

16th October 2019

The Dons have pulled off a major coup with the permanent signing of Watson Boas on a two-year deal.

The half-back/hooker joins from Featherstone Rovers after spending the majority of the 2019 campaign on loan at the Keepmoat Stadium.

Boas is currently away on international duty, having been selected to play for Papua New Guinea in the Rugby League World Cup 9s.

He said: “It’s great to have signed a permanent deal with the Dons, the club made me feel at home from the moment I joined on loan.

“Richard Horne and Carl Hall made it clear that they wanted to keep me here, and that made it an easy decision to stay.

“While my focus now is on doing well for PNG, I am already excited about returning for pre-season and having a really good year in 2020.”

Head coach Richard Horne said: “I’m really pleased to have Watson joining us on a permanent deal for the next two years.

“His ability to play in the halves or at hooker makes him a key player for us and he showed last season how much his pace can hurt teams.

“He settled into the group really well and speaking with him he is ready to push on and improve even further with us next year.”
