KNIGHTS prospect Dominic Parsons has become the latest player to extend his stay at Castle Park.

The young lock has been used mainly from the bench this season but has impressed Doncaster’s coaching staff with his ability and attitude.

Parsons, who joined the club from Sheffield Tigers last season, has signed a one-year contract extension.

He said: “I’m settled at Castle Park, which is important.

“Last season everything was new, but signing for a director of rugby I have spent a year with as a coach was an easy decision for me.

“This season I have scored a few tries and played in some big games, and hopefully my development can continue under Brett Davey and Glen Kenworthy’s coaching.

“Hopefully I can look to maybe start a few more games next season.”

Assistant boss Brett Davey is set to take over from current boss Lynn Howells next month - but not before Doncaster conclude what is fast turning out to be a fascinating end to the current campaign.

Knights travel to local rivals Rotherham Titans on Saturday (3pm) for a potentially pivotal play-off clash.

Victory for Doncaster could leave the club just one win away from a place in the Championship semi-finals.
