Bruno Bravo will make his first start for Doncaster Knights against Worthing Raiders today (2.30pm).

The Argentinean scrum half replaces Chris Hallam in Clive Griffiths’ starting XV - one of four changes from the team that won at Hull Ionians last weekend.

Tyson Lewis, Jack Bergmanas and player coach Glen Kenworthy are also promoted from the bench, at the expense of Glenn Bryce, Adam Tamanis and Michael Walker-Fitton.

The back row combination of Adam Kettle, Michael Hills and Phil Eggleshaw remains unchanged for a third successive game.

Knights are hoping to make it three wins out of three in National One following comfortable victories over Blackheath and Hull.

Director of rugby Clive Griffiths, meanwhile, is expecting newly promoted Worthing to pose Knights’ defensive line with their stiffest test yet.

Griffiths said: “We know that Worthing have plenty of pace, some good backs and some hard running forwards.

“In the game against Wharfedale they dug deep late on and went from being lots of points behind to lose by just a whisker.

“We will be taking nothing for granted, there will be no complacency in the squad.

“Worthing are going to come at us all guns blazing, they have nothing to lose.

“They will come and throw the kitchen sink at us and try to utilise the quick backs that they have.

“This is probably going to be the biggest challenge our backline will face so far this season.”
