Titans gear up for play-offs

DELIGHTED Titans are gearing up for the Championship play-offs for the second successive time after their stunning win in Nottingham.

And coach Lee Blackett has given his side a huge pat on the back for their efforts, especially after Friday's 21-10 win at The Bay.

Rotherham now face London Scottish at Abbeydale on Saturday to end their regular season and it will need an afternoon of freak results for them to fail in their top four charge. They are now five points clear of Nottingham, who need to hope Titans lose to Scottish while they have to bridge a massive 127 point gap at Bedford.

Said Blackett: "Obviously I'm delighted about Friday's result, especially with the character shown by the boys.

"To go to Nottingham and not let them get a single point is great. It's not certain that we are in so we will face Scottish looking for at least the one point to make mathematically certain."

Barring a disaster, Rotherham will play either Bristol or Worcester, who meet this weekend, during the weekends of May 1-3 and 8-10.
