Doncaster have clinched the signing of centres Pasqualle Dunn and Danny Cowling.

The pair’s arrival follows last month’s capture of Whitehaven full back Tom Carr as Paul Cooke looks to build on this season’s fourth place finish.

The Dons fought off interest from several other clubs to land cross code star Dunn.

New Zealand born Dunn caught the eye during a handful of appearances for Doncaster last season after being released by union giants Leicester Tigers.

Cowling, 22, has rejoined the club from Halifax.

The former Wakefield Trinity Wildcats man spent time on loan at Doncaster in 2012 and 2013.

“Getting Pasqualle is massive for us,” said Dons chief executive Carl Hall.

“He’s only a young guy but he showed a lot in the six games that he played for us. The players were all saying ‘make sure you keep him’.

“I’m sure he’ll really kick on against next year. He’ll probably want to move onto bigger and better things but hopefully he can do that with Doncaster.

“The teams he played against, they all tried to sign him. They all asked me if he had signed.

“Danny was a fans’ favourite when he was here previously,” added Hall, on Cowling.

“He’s very professional and he’s at the right age for this club.

“He’s had a couple of injuries this year but I’m sure Danny will work hard during the off-season and we’ll reap the rewards of that, because the kid can play.”
