McGee rejects Titans

ROTHERHAM Titans will have to continue their search for a new coach after top target Tommy McGee surprisingly rejected a proposed move to Clifton Lane.

The 34-year-old was a front runner for the job, to be vacated by Alex Codling at the end of the season.

But the former Leeds hooker has now pledged his future to the North Yorkshire club for next season.

Said a statement from the National One strugglers: "In the face of speculation, he has announced to the playing squad that, while further developing and expanding his coaching rôle at Leeds Carnegie, he will continue on the coaching team at Wharfedale."

Wharfedale Chairman of Rugby, Michael Harrison added: “I am delighted that Tommy is staying on board and that his considerable expertise, in whatever capacity, will be available to us next season.”

Titans will now rekindle their search for a new face.
