One of Rotherham Titans’ most experienced players, fly half or full back, Garry Law, is leaving the Clifton Lane club after three years and joining one of the most ambitious sides in the North East, Darlington Mowden Park.

The Scotsman, 29, was the Championship’s highest points’ scorer in his first season at Rotherham in 2011-2012 when he finished with more than 250.

However, a succession of injuries last season and this has restricted Law’s appearances to only a handful, but now that he is fit again, Law is ready to resume his career. At his peak, Law was one of the most accurate goal kickers in the Championship and a high class player either in the number 10 shirt or at full back.

But with Rotherham unlikely to offer him a new contract because of his injury record, Law had to look for opportunities elsewhere.

Having just won promotion to National One, won by Doncaster Knights this season who now rejoin Rotherham in the Championship, Darlington Mowden Park are the type of up and coming club that can benefit from Law’s experience of playing at a high level.

Law, who captained Rotherham, appeared for Scotland A, the Barbarians and played in Italy before being signed by the Titans.

Law says:” I have enjoyed my three years at Rotherham very much but now is the time to consider what the next step is to be in my professional career.

“Darlington Mowden Park are a club with real potential, have excellent facilities and are ambitious.”

The North East club have described Law’s decision to join them as “ fantastic signing for us.”

Meanwhile, Rotherham’s coach, Lee Blackett, is appearing live on Sky Sports this evening as he takes part in the coverage of the second leg of the promotion play-off final between Bristol and London Welsh who are favourites to regain their place in the Premiership as they go into the game with a lead of 19 points at the Memorial Stadium.
