ROTHERHAM Titans will make a presentation to prop forward Toby Williams today to mark his century of appearances for the club.
Williams arrived at Clifton Lane in 2013 and stayed for five years before moving to Doncaster Knights last season.
He returned to Rotherham this summer and hit the 100 mark when he came on as a replacement in last week’s fixture at Birmingham Moseley.
Toby will be presented with a commemorative tankard before today’s National One match against Darlington Mowden Park.
Titans director of rugby Martin Jenkinson first brought Williams to the club when he spotted him playing for Yorkshire.
Martin said: “Yorkshire got well beaten that day and the scrum was dismantled by Cheshire but he was trying to scrummage on his own when none of the others wanted to know. He didn’t give up the fight.
“Toby is a first class servant to Rotherham Rugby Club. He is a model professional and his fitness is legendary. To get to 100 games is no mean feat.”
Titans will be chasing a third straight home win today to make up for three straight losses away from home. They also need more staying power having failed to score in the second half of their last two matches.
“I have asked the coaches for a change in intensity in training. We have to start lasting 80 minutes,” added Jenkinson.
Coached by former Titan Garry Law, Darlington have won two and lost three of their opening five matches. They lost off the last kick to Cinderford last week while Titans were pipped by four points at Moseley.
Kick-off is 2pm.
