Robin Copeland, Titans man of the match in their 44-6 demolition of league leaders Bristol, believes his side are now serious Championship contenders!

The 24 year old former Leinster Academy and Plymouth Albion back-rower is proving to be a key member of Andre Besters new look squad.

Copeland is enjoying his time at Clifton Lane and believes any Championship side would be foolish to underestimate the South Yorkshire outfit.

Copeland said, Teams are underestimating us at their own peril. We are really starting to come together as a team and every week we are improving so much. Players are getting that bit more confident watch this space!

Thats the third time this season that we have beaten the top of the league and thats the plan, thats why we are here, were here to win.

It was a brilliant team performance against Bristol and we were absolutely ecstatic at the end we totally deserved the victory. We scored at all the right times in the game and that was crucial, getting points on the board when we needed to and thats what won us the game. Its not that we scored tries; it was the times we scored them. Mentally for them they put their head down.

The highlight of Titans four try destruction of Bristol was Copelands 60 metre dash for his sides 2nd try of the match. The likeable Irishman drooled, The try... I love scoring those kind of tries, I couldnt be happier.

The ball popped out on this side, Jimmy Williams gave me the pass while he was half being tackled and I just took it up. My momentum brought me round infield and I knew they wouldnt be chasing up on that side and a hole just kind of opened up and I backed myself and put my head down and I was really pleased to score a try like that.

Im delighted with the win and the performance and my parents came over for this game which makes it all the more special for me.

Are Rotherham becoming a threat themselves in the Championship now?

Copeland continued, You have to believe we are; if you dont think you are here to compete, theres no point in being here. Just because the team didnt do as well last year doesnt mean anything this term.

This is a whole new team and we are a bunch of players that know we can go on and do well and we can win this league.

If people dont believe that now then thats their own fault!
