Doncaster Knights’ skipper Michael Hills is set to return to action after several weeks on the sidelines with a knee injury in Saturday’s Championship game against Jersey Reds at Castle Park.

Hills returned to full training on Monday and has suffered no adverse reaction.

Head coach Glen Kenworthy is hoping that several other regulars will be fit to return after missing recent games.

Hooker Ben Hunter, prop Colin Quigley and second-rower Morgan Eames were all set to resume full training today.

But full-back Paul Jarvis(calf/hamstring) is again a doubt and there are concerns over second-rower Nick Civetta.

To add to the club’s problems as they look to get back to winning ways following last Friday’s defeat at Nottingham, several players were sent home on Monday after going down with a bug.

“We isolated them from the rest of the players and sent them home,” said Kenworthy yesterday.

“We’ll see how they are tomorrow but even if they are feeling better these sort of bugs can take it out of you for a few days after.”
