Hull FC and Doncaster end dual-registration partnership

Hull FC and Doncaster will not be continuing their dual-registration partnership in 2020.

The Dons will head in a different direction next season, with the club deciding to create a larger squad due to Super League’s reserves competition coming back intro fruition next year.

Doncaster chief executive, Carl Hall, said: “We will not be renewing the dual-reg partnership going forward, and with Super League’s decision to run a reserve competition next season, myself and head coach Richard Horne felt it was time for us to stand alone and have a bigger squad of our own to call on.

“We will also have the option of the loan market if needed.

“The boys who have come down and pulled on the Dons jersey have always given 100% whenever called upon and we thank them, I would also like to thank Lee Radford and the Hull FC club for the past few years and wish them all the best.

“We move on now and look forward to next season, one which will see us begin a new chapter on and off the field.”
