Rawsthorne preparing for a big year in 2018

Hull FC winger Nick Rawsthorne is using his time on loan at Doncaster to prepare for a big year in 2018.

Rawsthorne, 21, scored two tries in three Super League appearances for the Airlie Birds earlier in the season and has his eyes on making a bigger impact next season.

He is now on-loan in League 1 at Doncaster, and he scored a try for them on his second debut for the club against Keighley on Sunday.

Also comfortable at centre or at full-back, Rawsthorne scored one try in one appearance during a loan spell at Leigh, and scored seven tries in five appearances for York on dual-registration earlier in 2017.

He told the Dons official club website: “I’m hoping for a big year next year so it’s important that I come here and get some game time, I want to keep improving and I’m enjoying it here.

“I’ve had games with a few teams this year and feel I’ve done well, coming here I want to keep the form going and help the Dons out as much as I can.

“Richard (Horne) being here was massive for me, the connection between the Dons and Hull FC is always building and even more so now he is the head coach here.

“He’s trying to implement his style of play here which can be tough in terms of switching from full-time to part-time but he’s doing a great job and wants to play and expansive style of rugby.

“We know that in this league if we can shift the ball quickly and keep our errors to a minimum then we can be a match for any team.”
