Transfer News: Armitage brother quietly makes shock cross-code switch

Doncaster RLFC climbed back into the Betfred League One promotion play-off places over the weekend with former Wasps man Guy Armitage making a debut.

After stints at Wasps, London Irish, London Scottish and London Welsh, Jersey Reds and Ealing Trailfinders, the second youngest of the Armitage brothers has joined the rugby league club.

A former England U20s rep, Armitage is currently on trial and will be looking to make the most of his career after false starts at both Jersey and Ealing Trailfinders, who released him at the end of last season.


“I thought he went well,” said Richard Horne.

“He’s a union boy with a good pedigree who is still getting used to the game but I thought he was safe.”
