Rotherham Titans will later today confirm their line-up for tomorrow’s South Yorkshire derby against Doncaster Knights at Clifton Lane in the British and Irish Cup.
Coach Justin Burnell is expected to make several changes to the side which lost a week ago 17-16 at Bedford in the Championship.
It is thought some of the players, if not all, dual-registered from Premiership club Gloucester will play.
That means forwards Josh McNulty, Joe Batley and Freddie Clarke should make their home debuts for alongside backs Lloyd Evans and Tom Hudson.
Rotherham, keen to give opportunities in the B and I Cup to players who are not first choice in the Championship, may also include forwards such as Charlie Maddison, Ian Williams, George Oliver, Jack Ramshaw, Darren Oliver and James Sanderson.
