The clash will be one to look forward to for Gordy Long and his troops, who secured their progress thanks to a last-gasp 20-19 victory over Wigan St Cuthberts in round two at Weeland Road on Saturday.
Head coach Gordy Long said ďItís a good draw for us really, theyíre a Championship 1 team and although we havenít got the home draw itís not too far for us to travel. Iím sure weíll get a good support and who knows what can happen if we apply ourselves correctly. The stadium is definitely the best in the championships and it should make for a great occasion for all at the club.Ē
The game will take place on Saturday 24th March with a 3pm kick off. The club is running supporters buses to the stadium leaving Rovers HQ at around 12.45pm.
Tickets for travel are available from the clubhouse or a committee member priced at £6 for adults, children accompanying an adult go free.
Doncaster sit top of the Co-operative Championship 1 table after their opening-day 48-16 win over Whitehaven at the weekend. Former Hull KR, Hull FC and Wakefield Wildcats man Cooke played a key role, scoring two tries and kicking eight goals. The Dons have boosted their squad with dual registration halfback Keiran Hyde from Wakefield for the rest of the season.
