Blackheath v Rotherham Titans – Team News

Posted by

After the excellent, hard-fought, 9-5 victory at a wet Billesley Common against Moseley last Saturday, Blackheath return to home soil tomorrow to welcome Rotherham Titans to Well Hall.

With Richmond slipping up over the last couple of weeks, the Club are firmly in the hunt at the top of National League One, currently sitting in fourth spot alongside Rams, and with the leaders just five points ahead.

Rotherham dabbled with the Premiership (as Earth Titans) in the early Noughties, moving their games to Millmoor, then the home of Rotherham United, and looking to become a powerhouse of rugby union in South Yorkshire.

From 2004, however, the Titans moved back to Clifton Lane and resided at Level Two, until 2018 when they slipped down to National League One.

They currently sit third from bottom after a poor run which has seen them gain a solitary draw in their last five games, but they scored the notable away scalp of Chinnor back in October to add to two earlier home wins against Sale FC and Cambridge.

Blackheath make just one change to the starting XV from Billesley Common, with Jack Daly returning at scrum-half.

Harry Fry and Ben Ransom who missed the trip to Birmingham are added to the bench.
