Last Saturday’s crushing 44-6 win over Bristol – Rotherham’s biggest margin of victory at home in the league since they beat Newbury 62-5 in November

2008 – propelled the rapidly- improving Titans to second place in the Championship. For the third time this season, they toppled the side that led the league,

with Bristol joining Bedford and London Welsh as the Titans’ prized scalps. However, victory at Cornish Pirates – just one place below them in the league -

would arguably top the lot because Andre Bester’s men were humiliated (14-67) there in last season’s televised play- off encounter.

Doncaster v London Welsh is first up on Saturday’s four- game bill, where the Knights will seeking their first win in six games against the Exiles. The

Yorkshire outfit did pick up a losing bonus point, though, in each of last season’s two defeats.

Bedford have a good record against Plymouth in recent times, winning all of the last four meetings. Indeed, Albion have not beaten the Blues at home in the

league since December 2006. Saturday’s remaining fixtures see Moseley play Bristol, a game which ended 13-13 last season, while London Scottish are at

home to bottom- of- the- table Esher.

The final game of Round 10 comes at Headingley on Sunday afternoon where Leeds Carnegie will be looking to make it five Championship wins on the

bounce with victory over Nottingham. Leeds have won all four games between the sides at this level as well as an EDF Energy Cup semi- final in 2009.
