Titans keep the pressure on

TITANS will be keeping a close eye on how Championship rivals Nottingham fare today after a successful Friday night at Moseley.

A 32-26 victory under the floodlights at Billesley Common lifted Lee Blackett’s side back into the top four, although Nottingham can climb back above them with a victory at Doncaster this afternoon.

Blackett, who this week announced he is to join Premiership outfit Wasps at the end of the season, admitted Titans weren’t at their best but had got the result they wanted, capped by a four-try bonus point.

He said: “We were clinical at times but should be a lot better than what we were. Having said that the result is what it is all about at this time of year and for the time being we are back in the top four.

“We’ve asked the question of Nottingham so we’ll see how they get on at Doncaster.”

Rotherham ran in all their tries in the first half, three of them by flanker Jack Preece. Dan White added a fourth as they turned around 26-14 in front but strong defence was needed to repel Moseley’s late surge. They also touched notched four tries.

James McKinney landed three conversions and a couple of penalties to help keep Titans clear.

Their next match is at home to Doncaster in a fortnight’s time.
