THE TITANS NEED YOU!
It is a very sad day when Titans will finish the season and enter the Play-offs of the Greene King IPA Championship with games, regretfully not at The Home of Rugby in Rotherham.
The terms and conditions, financial and otherwise required by Rotherham Town Cricket Club have made the playing of the final home game of the season against Leeds Carnegie for The Yorkshire Regiment Trophy on 19 April and hopefully the Play-Off fixture on the weekend of 10/11 May impossible to stage at Clifton Lane.
Chairman Nick Cragg said, “We are very sad that our final home fixture of the current season and the Play-Off fixtures in May will not take place in Rotherham. With the success of the boys on the park comes significant interest in our fortunes and our game will be televised live on SKY. Reluctantly we have been obliged to move the game to Sheffield Rugby Club where they have graciously agreed to stage both the 19 April and 10 May fixtures.”
Obviously Titans need the whole of the town to rally to the cause and give the boys the very best chance of progressing through the Play-Off Semi-Finals and into the final foray for a place in The Premiership. With Leeds Carnegie currently 4th and the Titans third there is a big game to be won on 19 April leading to the major prize of a place in The Premiership at stake in the Play-Offs.
Head Coach Lee Blackett led the rallying cry at The Supporters Club meeting on Tuesday evening by appealing to all Titan’s fans to overcome the disappointment of not playing at Clifton Lane by creating ‘The Shed in Sheffield’.
Lee Blackett said, “The Shed has been our 16th man all season and we absolutely need that support as we come to the business end of the season. I want every fan to travel to Sheffield and give the boys the best chance of winning The Championship and becoming Titans’ legends.”
