MATCH DAY REPORT -Rotherham Titans vs Bristol Rugby

Bristol Rugby 34-26 Rotherham Titans

Bristol Rugby consolidated their position at the top of the table with a bonus point 26-34 victory over Rotherham Titans on Saturday.

Andy Robinson’s men scored four tries, courtesy of Ross Rennie, Nick Koster and Ben Mosses (2), to inflict Rotherham’s first defeat at Clifton Lane since October 2013.

Nick Koster came within a yard of the whitewash inside the opening five minutes, before Glen Townson was adjudged to have been held up over the line following Luke Baldwin’s break.

Bristol did go in front on the quarter hour as Ross Rennie profited from a strong driving lineout to dab down for a converted score.

And the visitors extended their advantage minutes later as Nick Koster accelerated through an opening to touch down in the corner. Nicky Robinson struck the angled conversion to move his side into a 0-14 lead.

In a rampant twenty-minute spell, Ben Mosses showed sublime footwork to collect Kyle Traynor’s offload and fly over the whitewash for a third converted try.

Juan Pablo Socino struck two penalty goals in quick succession to reduce arrears, before Charlie Mulchrone scooped up a loose ball to race in from halfway. The ever-prolific Socino converted as Rotherham fought back to 13-21 at the interval.

The home side continued their resurgence in the second period as Socino struck another long-range three pointer to bring his side to within two points.

But Ben Mosses went over for his second – and Bristol’s fourth - of the evening to seal the bonus point and give Andy Robinson’s men breathing space at 19-28.

Nicky Robinson kept the scoreboard ticking over with a penalty goal, before Juan Pablo Socino capitalized on an overlap to slide over for a converted try, setting up a thrilling finish at Clifton Lane.

With time running out, Robinson struck another penalty to edge Bristol further ahead and the visitors held out for a valuable Greene King IPA Championship victory.
