Stagg in for injured Baines: RFU Championship Squad

Stagg in for injured Baines

Rotherham Titans hooker Dan Baines has been forced to pull out of the prestigious RFU Championship squad that will take on the Maori All Blacks on Saturday, November 17 at Castle Park, Doncaster.

Baines has suffered a recurrence of his recent rib injury and could be missing from Titans action for a number of weeks. Whilst Baines misses out, it has given Ted Stagg the opportunity to showcase his talents to a wider audience. Stagg is the Titans leading try scorer this term and when the starting 15 is announced tomorrow (Friday 16); he’ll be hoping to get the nod.

With only two days till the big kick off online tickets have now been withdrawn, but pop in or ring Castle Park to grab yours. There are still a number of tickets available from reception at Castle Park, though it is highly advisable that you do not hesitate to get yours or risk being disappointed.

Parking on Saturday will be offered on the four training pitches at Castle Park; for a full day parking there is a charge of £5 per vehicle with each receiving one complimentary programme. To book your ticket or for further enquires, please contact Doncaster Knights on 01302 831388.
