Hull FC star joins surprising new club for 2024 season

Former Hull FC hooker Joe Lovodua has become the latest in a long line of impressive and surprise signings made by Doncaster RLFC ahead of the 2024 Befred Championship season.

The 25-year-old is the latest addition to the Dons squad that boasts Betfred Super League and international experience having represented Hull FC at club level and Fiji in the 2017 Rugby League World Cup.

Lovodua, who is currently in Australia said, “I just want to let you know I’ve signed until the end of the 2025 season. I can’t wait to get back to England and meet the lads and meet you guys.”

The versatile Fijian will travel back to England shortly to meet up with the rest of the Dons squad who began their pre-season last week.

The club have also resigned Josh Guzdek. The 28-year-old had an impressive 2023 campaign helping the Dons achieve promotion to the Betfred Championship during his loan period from fellow South Yorkshire club Sheffield Eagles.

”I’m really looking forward to the 2024 campaign with Doncaster after a successful season. The fans support was massive for us at the back end of last season and it would be great to carry on that momentum.”

Guzdek joined the Dons on loan midway through the 2023 season and made ten appearances that proved enough to showcase his skills and secure a permanent deal signing for the Dons for the 2024 Betfred Championship campaign.
