Dan Lee - Back Row
Former Plymouth Albion player Dan played for Taunton in 2013/14 after recovering from a serious knee injury.
Keen to make a return to Championship and Cup level rugby, Dan guested for the Cornish Pirates in a pre-season friendly at St. Austell in August 2014 and shortly after signed for the club on a two year contract.
Director of Rugby Ian Davies said at the time: "Dan impressed with his attitude during his short trial period with us."
"He has signed on a two-year deal but will most likely spend the majority of this season back at Taunton where he will be under the watchful eyes of Tony Yapp and Chris Brown."
"We are pleased to strengthen our working relationship we established with Taunton last season. In Tony and Chris, Taunton have a quality coaching team so I'm comfortable to see players moving in both directions."
2015/16 would see Dan once again hampered by injury. However, despite playing in just seven games he still displayed his obvious potential, and keen to bounce back will look to make a real impact this season.

Devonian Dan started playing rugby at South Molton, aged five, before later moving to Crediton under 10s. He played in the same side as Sam Hill, and he also greatly appreciated the encouragement and support given by his dad Chris who coached there.
Dan attended Ivybridge College and was a member of the Exeter Chiefs Academy, and he then signed for Plymouth Albion from where he had short loan spell at Barnstaple. His brothers Josh and Mark – a former Albion player - were also registered at 'Barum'.
