Titans serve Sanderson with one match ban

Rotherham Titans have imposed a one match ban on lock forward Dan Sanderson, following his yellow card at Bristol in the RFU Championship at the weekend.

Rotherham Titans view player discipline, both on and off the field, as vitally important and hope the steps it has taken with Dan Sanderson, will send out a strong message to the rest of the Titans playing squad.

Rotherham Head Coach Alex Codling explained, “The club have imposed a 1 match ban on Dan Sanderson following his recent poor discipline. We want to send out a clear message to all the players in our squad that ill discipline will not be tolerated at Rotherham Titans.

“The boys are working very hard, as was seen down at Bristol on Sunday, but the impact of ill discipline in reality can’t be measured in a 10 minute spell and we want it completely stopped. We saw very promising signs down at Bristol, but for me the key moment was the yellow card incident and at this level of rugby the margins between wining and losing are so small.

“It’s important that we set strict boundaries both on and off the field of play and we hope what we’ve done with Dan will send out the right message.”
