BIG spending Bristol are in town - and Rotherham Titans are ready for 'em!

That's the message from Clifton Lane as rock-bottom Rotherham prepare to take on the Premiership-bound table-toppers on a day when relegation could be mathematically confirmed.

But confidence in the camp is soaring after last week's sensational performance at second-placed Ealing when Nic Rouse's side were only beaten by a late, late penalty after scoring FOUR first half tries and leading three times.

It finished 37-35 but the performance was enough to give Rotherham plenty of heart as they now prepare to tackle the West Country side, currently ten points clear at the top of the Championship.

Said coach Rouse: "I was proud of the way the boys played at Ealing and it was unfortunate the way we were beaten right at the end.

"But it showed what we can do and we're all looking forward to taking on Bristol now. We want to end strongly and I don't think they will be looking forward to coming here."

Kick off is 2pm. Titans can be relegated if the lose and other results go against them.
