Returning men to boost Titans
Byron Hodge - back in contention

SEVERAL players will be in the frame for a return to Rotherham Titans action at Richmond this weekend — and that's good news for the club as the lingering battle for survival continues.

Titans won't throw in the towel until relegation is mathematically certain and victory in West London tomorrow really could upset the apple cart.

With men returning from injury, coach Nic Rouse say's it's adding to the upswing in fortunes at the club as competition for places drives players on.

"There's a lot of competition for places now," he said.

"Rob Loew has had a good month as have Luke Cole and Jonny Murphy. The competition there for instance is pushing them on and the back rows guys have also stepped up.

"Byron Hodge will be back in the mix and it's good to see him returning..

"We've also got one or two others returning from injury, such as Brandon Palmer, and that adds to the training squad and competition for places."

Saturday's game starts at 2pm and there's a full preview in tomorrow's Advertiser.
