Titans trail by three points

Rotherham Titans trail 17-14 after the first leg of a windswept semi-final at the Memorial Stadium last weekend.

Lee Blackett will have been delighted with his team's first half display, as the powerful boot of Juan Pablo Socino kicked the visitors into a 9-0 lead.

But second half yellow cards to Ed Williamson and Josh Brown - who used to ply his trade with Bristol - gave Andy Robinson's side a route back into the game.

Jamie Broadley's last-gasp try sets up the prospect of a tightly-contested second leg with it all to play for.

The Greene King IPA Championship semi-final will take place at Abbeydale, home of Sheffield RFC.

Rotherham have played one previous game at their makeshift home, going down 34-17 to Leeds Carnegie in front of the Sky Sports cameras.
