England U18 starlet back with Titans
Nic Dolly in action for Sale

TEENAGER Nic Dolly will start for Rotherham Titans as they chase a second victory of the British and Irish Cup season as they square up to Richmond..

Sydney-born Dolly made one dual-registered appearance for the club, ironically against Richmond in the home league defeat in October, but head coach Nic Rouse has moved to bring him back for this Saturday's clash.

The 18 year old has played for England U18s while trying to break through the Sale ranks and Rouse says he'll take a long look at the youngster.

"We briefly had Nic here before and we'll give him another game against Richmond and see how he goes," he said. "He'll start in the back row and it will be good to have another body in the squad."

Hooker Luke Cole will skipper the side for the first time as Rouse looks to rest some players with the resumption of the Championship programme in his focus. After Saturday's game, Titans then head to Connacht for their final B&I group game before Cornish Pirates come to town in the league on January 27.

Start time on Saturday is 2pm.
