Doncaster coach Richard Horne says former Man of Steel Rangi Chase has a point to prove as he prepares to return from a two-year drugs ban.

Chase, 33, is set to make his debut for the Dons against League One leaders Whitehaven on Sunday.

He hasn’t played since turning out for Widnes against Wakefield in Super League in 2017, following which he tested positive for cocaine.

Horne said: “Rangi is a quality player. He has been out of the game for two years and he is really looking forward to proving a point.

“He has come in and will add to us but we won’t change too much in terms of the way I set the team up to play.

“What he will add is the experience of playing in big games and knowing how to approach things when there are only a couple of points in it.”
