ROTHERHAM coach Andre Bester has made four changes for the game against third-placed Bedford Blues tomorrow when the league’s best defensive team, Titans, take on one of the most dangerous attacking units, at Goldington Road.

Prop Shane Cahill comes in for Jamie Kilbane, and skipper Sam Dickinson, who has recovered from his rib injury, returns instead of Barney Maddison. Elsewhere in the pack, Dan Baines, is preferred ahead of Ed Stagg in a Titans team which will be stretched repeatedly by Bedford whose backs enjoy making full use of their wide pitch.

The fourth change sees Jimmy Williams taking over at scrum half in place of Matt Rhodes. “When we won at London Welsh, we showed we could cope with a wide pitch and the tempo of a fast game, so there’s no reason why Rotherham can’t do the same tomorrow,” says Bester.
