Doncaster have signed half-back Ben Johnston on a two-year deal from York.

The 28-year-old scored 49 tries in 123 games for Halifax between 2014-19 before joining York ahead of last season. He has earned five caps for Ireland.

Johnston said: “I’m really excited to be joining the Dons and looking forward to being part of a big promotion push in 2021.

“Having had such a long lay-off due to the pandemic I am feeling refreshed and eager to get going with the boys.

“After speaking to Richard Horne and Carl Hall and hearing their plans I knew this was the place for me to be.”
