New head coach Steve Rains takes charge of Doncaster Mustangs for the first time on Sunday in their BAFNL opener against Nottingham Caesars at the Keepmoat Stadium.

The former Great Britain youth coach will be hoping to guide Doncaster to the Premier Division play-offs for a second successive season.

Kick-off at the Keepmoat athletics arena is 3pm.

General manager Mark Blyth said: “We’re hopeful we can have another good season.

“We’ve not added many new players but we’ve got some good lads and Steve should be able to get the best out of them.”
