Experienced Winger Bureta Faraimo Rejoins Doncaster for Remainder of 2024 Season

Doncaster, the Championship club, have re-signed USA international winger Bureta Faraimo for the rest of the 2024 season. Faraimo linked up with the Dons following his departure from Super League side Castleford Tigers towards the end of last season, making a solitary appearance as the club clinched promotion to the Championship from League 1.

The 33-year-old has been without a club in the early stages of 2024, but has now committed to a contract that will see him return to Doncaster for the remainder of the current campaign. Faraimo brings a wealth of experience, having made over 130 appearances across the NRL and Super League between 2014 and 2023.

The New Zealand-born winger came through the ranks at NRL side New Zealand Warriors before moving to Australia in 2011 after signing for Mackay Cutters in the Queensland Cup. Faraimo is eligible to play for the United States via his family heritage, making his international debut for the nation at the 2013 Rugby League World Cup.

“After an impressive World Cup campaign, Faraimo was snapped up by NRL side Parramatta Eels on a two-year deal, making his NRL debut in 2014 and going on to play 15 first-grade games for Parramatta over three seasons, scoring nine tries.”

The Wellington-born winger returned to the Warriors in 2017 but didn’t play an NRL game for the club, and made the move over to Super League in 2017 with Hull FC. Faraimo went on to score 43 tries in 87 appearances for Hull over the course of four seasons before moving to Castleford ahead of the 2022 season, where he scored 15 tries in 35 games.

Faraimo could feature for Doncaster in their upcoming Championship match against Widnes Vikings on Sunday. The Dons will be looking to the experienced winger to provide a boost as they continue their push for success in the 2024 season.
