Win double buoys Titans

TITANS get back down to league business this week lifted by their first back-to-back wins in nearly two years.
They won 27-3 at Connacht Eagles 27-3 on Friday night in the British and Irish Cup, just a week after seeing off Richmond at Clifton Lane.
Still rooted to the bottom of the Championship, where they're without a victory in 13 attempts, Rotherham will hope to take their cup form into the league, starting at home to Cornish Pirates on Saturday.
Coach Nic Rouse said: "We've been slowly getting better over the last few weeks. We are trying to implement a few things and I can see the improvement in the boys."
Rotherham raced into a 20-3 lead by half time against Connacht with tries from Jonny Murphy, Jamie Cooke and Drew Cheshire.
Jake Henry scored the fourth try off the last play to secure a bonus point, with the other points coming from the boot of Caolan Ryan.
The victory secured runners-up spot in Pool 4.
Added Rouse: "We knew Connacht were a dangerous side and can play from anywhere on the park so I was pleased with the pressure we put on them. That led to mistakes and we capitalised."
