“Bomber” command



PROFESSIONAL rugby player Robin “Bomber” Hislop has secured his future with his team after he agreed a two-year contract extension.
Doncaster Knights announced that their mainstay prop forward will continue to turn out for the club at Castle Park until 2022.
Hislop is the 2018/19 players’ and coaches’ player of the season becomes the latest to commit his future to the Knights after another stellar season with the club.
Hislop has been one of the Knights’ leading performers this term, making 17 appearances in the curtailed 2019/20 campaign and has gained a reputation as one of the top loose heads in the championship.
At 28, the front rower is very much in his prime and Steve Boden, inbound director of rugby, considers him to be a key component for his new-look Knights squad.
He said: “A number of other clubs were interested in Robin and rightly so.
“He’s a stand-out performer in the championship week in week out, his work ethic and passion to help the team is exemplary and we are delighted to have secured his services.
“We still believe Robin’s best rugby is in front of him; he is an all-round top bloke and we’re excited to see the growth in his performances.”
Bomber, now in his second spell with the club, made his 50th Knights’ appearance against Coventry in November and has become synonymous with the number one jersey, despite fierce competition.
The former Edinburgh and Rotherham front row has established himself as a firm fan favourite and says he is excited about the future at Castle Park.
“I’m delighted to have resigned with the Knights, it’s a brilliant club with awesome facilities.
