LOOKS like there’s something fishy going on at Doncaster rugby union club!

Players from Doncaster Knights, based on Armthorpe Road, took off their rugby boots to let tiny fish loose on their feet.

They spent a morning at the Appy Feet shop at the Frenchgate Centre to let off some steam after suffering a defeat in a championship game against Bristol.

Bosses at the club were hoping the treatment would help the players.

The treatment sees little fish called Garra Rufa eat up dead hard skin off the feet.

Although they have no teeth, the fish gently nibble off any dead hard skin.

The fish will only work on unhealthy or dead skin, leaving the healthy skin untouched.

The rugby stars are not the first sportsmen to try out the treatment.

A group of Doncaster Rovers footballers tried it out during the summer.
