“Lee has signed as a Scrum half to complement the abilities of Chris Hallam, as we look for a balance throughout the squad that gives us the options we need on the pitch . The fact he is a reliable goal kicker is an extra bonus, it does no harm to have all the bases covered during a game.” He continued “ A key part of this signing, as all of the signings this year, is that the player showed enthusiasm to play for Doncaster during our discussions”.
