RUGBY league convert Will Sharp will make his full debut for Doncaster Knights in Saturday’s massive relegation battle at Moseley.

Sharp replaces the injured Will Simpson in the only change to the backline from Knights’ impressive 23-17 win at home to Leeds Carnegie a fortnight ago.

Brian McGovern gets the nod to replace suspended Tom Davies at loose-head prop.

Basement side Doncaster could leapfrog their opponents in the Championship standings with victory at Billesley Common.

Director of rugby Clive Griffiths refused to put extra significance on this weekend’s clash when he spoke to the Free Press earlier in the week, insisting each of Knights’ six remaining games are all ‘must win’ matches.

Doncaster are still to face second-bottom Jersey in what could potentially be a relegation decider.

Knights team to face Moseley: Connor Braid, Michael Keating, Will Sharp, Tom Luke, Tyson Lewis, Jamie Lennard, Joe Bedford, Brian McGovern, Rhys Buckley, Jerry Cronin, Matt Challinor, Dominic Parsons, Adam Kettle, Will Hafu, Chris Planchant. Subs: Andy Brown, Jack Bergmanas, Ben Sowery, Phil Hoy, Andy Boyde, Chris Hallam, Dante Mama.
