Doncaster Knights have been drawn in Pool 5 of the British & Irish Cup alongside Newport Gwent Dragons Premiership Select, Connacht Eagles and Jersey.

Knights, last season’s losing finalists, travel to Jersey on the weekend of November 13/14/15, before facing Connacht Eagles and Welsh side Newport Gwent Dragons Premiership Select.

Knights face all three opponents home and away in the first round.

The top side in each pool will progress to knockout stage, plus the three best runners-up.

Doncaster were unbeaten in last season’s competition until their 35-5 defeat to Worcester Warriors in April’s final.
