Tampin and Broadley re-sign at Rotherham but Socino moves on
Rotherham Titans are delighted to announce that Mark Tampin and Jamie Broadley have penned deals to remain at Clifton Lane for next season, whilst Juan Pablo Socino has agreed terms with Premiership outfit Newcastle Falcons.
Tighthead prop Mark Tampin has agreed a 1 year deal, whilst winger Jamie Broadley has penned a 2 year extension, bringing the confirmed signings for next season to 15.
Commenting on the latest additions to next years squad, Titans Lee Blackett explained, “They are two obvious good additions to the squad, they are two guys who came to us having played most of their rugby in the lower leagues, although Mark Tampin had a spell in the Leeds Carnegie academy, but he’s played the majority of his rugby at Wharfedale.
“Mark has come on really well during the year and has developed nicely, when he’s come on off the bench he’s made a difference. We’re hoping that next year Tamps just takes that next step and pushes himself to be a starting tighthead week in and week out. He’s been involved in every single squad we’ve had this year baring one and that was because he was ill.
“Jamie Broadley has developed really nicely too; he’s one of those guys alongside Michael Keating and Curtis Wilson who we rotate between. Jamie, in our first half dozen games and in our last half dozen games has been outstanding and he’s been one of our best back three players. He’s a great signing for us and he has loads of potential going forward and we are hoping he’s going to develop even further next year.”
Leaving Clifton Lane at the end of the season is Titans leading point’s scorer Juan Pablo Socino; the sensational centre has agreed a move to Premiership side Newcastle Falcons.
Commenting on the Argentinean’s departure, Lee Blackett added, “Juan deserves his chance to play in the top flight and I’m sure he’ll go on to be a great success. He’s been nothing but a true professional all year, he’s one of the best guys in training and he’s one of our match winners on game day. We are obviously massively disappointed to lose him, but he deserves to be playing in the Premiership and we as a club wish all the best at Newcastle Falcons.”
