NO MORE yellow cards: that’s the message from Rotherham coach Andre Bester as the Titans head into this evening’s Championship match at Nottingham, kick-off 7.45pm.

In the four league games so far, Rotherham’s indiscipline has resulted in a yellow card being issued in every match which is why Bester, delighted with the performance against Bedford last Saturday, has had more than enough.

Boosted by the outstanding win against Bedford, beaten 40-32 at Clifton Lane, Rotherham are in a positive frame of mind as they take on Nottingham who have a similar record in the Championship with two wins and two defeats.

Nottingham, seventh in the table, are one place behind the Titans who moved up to sixth on 11 points following the excellent Bedford victory.

One of the outcomes of that win saw Rotherham’s fly half, Garry Law, rapidly establishing himself as a highly influential match winner at Clifton Lane and he become the number one goal kicker in the Championship.

The Scotsman has to date put over 53 points made up of seven conversions,12 penalties and one drop goal in an impressive start to his career in England since he signed in the summer from Italian club Viadana. Law is this season’s replacement for Juan Pablo Socino who left Rotherham to join this evening’s opposition.

The Argentine, last year’s leading points scorer for the Titans, has settled in well at Nottingham, scoring his first try against Esher in the last league match at Meadow Lane two weeks ago.

Bester is unlikely to make any changes to his Titans squad at a ground where they have struggled in recent seasons.
