SECOND row Dan Smith has made a sentimental return to Doncaster Knights just 18 months after being told he may never play rugby again.

Former Bath Academy product Smith (pictured) was forced to leave the Knights following an injury plagued 2009/10 season at Castle Park.

The 27-year-old sat out last season after undergoing spinal surgery but has since battled his way back to fitness at National League One side Barking.
