Rugby Union: Super fast Joe gets his chance

Have your say

ROTHERHAM Titans Head Coach Andre Bester is looking forward to harnessing the super-fast skills of newly-recruited Joe Ellyatt, who replaces injured flanker Latu Makaafi.

“I think in his pre-season stats he was one of the quickest guys around. He did impress in pre-season, however, we chose not to go with him at that stage and he was a bit unlucky. But we also knew that the first time we picked up any injuries in that department we would go back to him. Joe can play anywhere in the back row and I see a lot of Sean Dougall about him; only he’s a big bigger. If he can school himself and worked very hard at his game, he can become outstanding.”
