Doncaster move for Broughton

Doncaster have signed forward Brooke Broughton, younger brother of Salford winger Jodie, from Warrington.

Broughton 21, has spent the past three years with the Wolves having initially started his career at Leeds, during which time he had a loan spell at Doncaster.

Dons’ head coach Tony Miller said: “Brooke’s a quality signing for the club and I’m thrilled he chose to come to Doncaster.

“He’s a strong running impact player who can bust the line and has been playing for a very good Warrington under 20’s side who have just won some silverware themselves. He’ll certainly strengthen our pack and give us plenty of go forward.”

The prop or second-rower has since been on loan with Dewsbury in 2011 and York in 2012, and scored a try in Warrington’s 36-20 win over Leeds in the Under 20s Grand Final.

Broughton said: “I left Doncaster on good terms after my month long loan in 2009 and I know Carl Hall really well so there was always a positive link with the club.

“I had a number of good offers on the table and the one from Doncaster stood out more than the rest. I’m really looking forward to joining up with the Doncaster lads and I’m hoping to make big inroads in 2013.

“I’d love to stay with the club for as long as possible but I do have ambitions to hopefully get back into Super League one day.”
