ROTHERHAM Titans' Harry Dunne was buzzing after his two tries capped an eighth league win of the season.

The centre claimed the only touchdowns in Saturday's 20-3 success against Cinderford at soggy Clifton Lane.

Titans' seventh win in nine, it nudges them up to fifth in National One.

Harry told the Advertiser: "We're onto a run of form and I've started scoring again, which I'm buzzing about, as anybody would be.

"It was a hard fought win. Cinderford had a strong set piece and it was a good test for our pack but they worked their backsides off and as a team we fronted up and got the win."

Head coach Joe Barker added: "Fair play to Harry, he always gets himself on the end of things, but in all honesty his first try was really good.

"Cinderford had some big lads and had scored tries against every team they'd played apart from Bishop's Stortford the previous week. We stopped them in open play and at the set piece and found a way to break them in attack.

"With the conditions and the way Cinderford played, it was a hard game but credit to our lads, we managed it very well."

Next up for Titans is a first ever trip to Bishop's Stortford on Saturday.

The Hertfordshire side are second-bottom but lost by just a point to leaders Blackheath last weekend. Kick-off is 3pm.
