Doncaster Knights have bolstered their squad in the run up to the new Championship season by signing scrum half duo Tomasi Palu and Jack Maplesden.

Tongan international Palu learnt his trade in New Zealand and starred for his country at the 2011 Rugby World Cup.

Leeds-born Maplesden, a Geography student at the University of Bristol, has been handed a deal after impressing on trial during pre-season.

The 18-year-old becomes the youngest member of Doncaster’s squad.

Knights start the new season at home to Plymouth Albion on Saturday.
