Tagaloa joins Doncaster on loan from Eagles

Doncaster has strengthened their squad for the rest of the season, with the signing of American international utility player Loto Tagoloa from Sheffield Eagles.

The Samoan-born back rower or centre has joined the Dons on loan for the rest of the 2015 campaign.

“We’ve been looking to bolster our squad going into the final stages of the season and I’m delighted to bring Loto in from Sheffield,” said Dons head coach Gary Thornton.

“He’s a big, strong, athletic player that can cover a number of positions. He’s played at a high level having been part of the USA World Cup squad. He’ll add strength in depth and will provide competition for places in both the backs and the forwards.

“I’d like to thank Mark Aston for allowing Loto to join us until the end of the season. I’m really looking forward to working with Loto and hopefully he will bring some added enthusiasm to our squad.”

Meanwhile, Doncaster have also confirmed that Danny Nicklas has left the club.

The 24-year-old half-back has been released from his contract after not featuring in first-team action since June.

“It’s been a difficult season for him. He’s had his injury problems and therefore he’s struggled to make training as often all parties would like,” said Thornton.

“He’s also been unable to commit as much time to training as everyone would like – partly due to work too – and he’s got a mortgage and a young family to look after so we fully understand and respect his decision and wish him all the best.

“We’ve gone some way to replacing him with Joe McLocklan and Ryan Wright coming to the club as our pivots so it shouldn’t be too much of a problem. I’m happy that we’re covered in what is an important department.”
