Richie Hawkyard is also expected to play despite picking up a minor knock during the Lions’ pre-season friendly at Featherstone.
Smith said: “We’ve done pre-season, had a couple of friendlies and everyone’s looking forward to getting out there.
“Doncaster came down a division last year so they’ve probably got a few players that have played at a higher level.
“There will also be a few new players there that will be trying to impress, so we know we’ve got a game on our hands.”
The forward has been struggling with a knee injury but is hopeful he can complete his recovery over the next few days.
