Prop star Williams to swap Ti­tans for Knights

The Rugby Paper - - Feature -

LOOSE-HEAD prop Toby Williams has signed for Don­caster from rel­e­gated Rother­ham for next sea­son.

Williams, 31, ar­rives with a wealth of Cham­pi­onship ex­pe­ri­ence, de­part­ing the Ti­tans as their longest serv­ing player hav­ing signed for the club in June 2013 and mak­ing 86 ap­pear­ances.

The move to Clifton Lane was Williams’ first pro­fes­sional Union con­tract af­ter switch­ing codes from League.

Don­caster boss Clive Grif­fiths said: “Toby has been one of the stand-out props in the Cham­pi­onship for many sea­sons. He is a pow­er­ful, low-to-the­ground, scrum­mager and a threat with ball in hand.”

Mean­while Ply­mouth Al­bion have signed for­mer Eng­land U18 winger Josh Skel­cey from Not­ting­ham.

Skel­cey, 23, came through the Northamp­ton Saints Academy and played in the LV= Cup.

Cur­rently head coach of Mid­lands 2 East (North) side Not­ting­ham Ca­su­als, Skel­cey will com­bine play­ing with coach­ing along­side head coach Kieran Hal­lett.
