Rotherham Titans captain Tom Calladine says he had no hesitation in making the switch to Doncaster Knights.
The 29-year-old back rower spent three seasons at Clifton Lane but arrived at Castle Park this summer.
“Since coming up from National One they’ve been a stalwart team really and the club always looks to push to be a top four or five side and with those aspirations I thought this something I want to be part of,” Calladine told Knights’ official website.
“I knew a few lads here before I signed as I have been playing in the Championship long enough.
“Everyone’s been welcoming, I’ve enjoyed it so far.”
He added: “I want to earn my name on the shirt, getting game time under my belt and starting as many games as possible and then making sure to put everything in to push us up the table.”
Calladine previously played for Nottingham Rugby, Hartpury, Linwood in New Zealand and his hometown club of Mansfield RFC.
He is a former England U16 and U18 representative.
