NEW head coach Nic Rouse was delighted to card a win in his first home game as Rotherham Titans' head coach.
His side eased home 31-10 against a makeshift Richmond in their final British and Irish Cup home game and Rouse now hopes that Titans will push on and make a fist of their remaining Championship games. The league campaign resumes on January 27 with Rotherham playing their B&I finale in Connacht this Friday.
Against Richmond, touch-downs came from Jamie Cooke and Drew Cheshire in the first half and a penalty try near the end wrapped it up.
Said Rouse: "I thought we applied ourselves really well but did let ourselves down a bit in the first half.
"Richmond had suffered with injury and had a mixed side out there - but you can only beat what's in front of you and they worked hard.
"Overall it's a step in the right direction and although we won't get ahead of ourselves we hope to carry on in this way when the Championship starts again in a fortnight's time."
