SKIPPER Tom Calladine admits he can barely recognise the Rotherham Titans ahead of the new Greene King IPA Championship after a disastrous campaign last time out.
The Titans finished bottom of the league table in 2016/17, below part-time outfit Richmond, but were spared relegation following the liquidation of London Welsh.
And it's been all change for the club since that disappointment, according to Calladine, who says there's a new positive attitude amongst the entire squad.
"The club seems a different place for all the new bodies and, obviously, a new coaching set up so things are looking good," he said.
"It's a brand-new squad really for Rotherham, it was a long old tough year for us, as it was the previous year, so a lot of new signings and some young faces.
