Socino helps steer Titans towards win

Rotherham Titans' excellent 29-13 win against London Welsh yesterday, one of the strongest sides in the Championship, saw them take a significant step towards finishing in the top eight and participating in the promotion play-offs.

A solid team effort, in both attack and defence, earned an invaluable four points for the second match in succession.

Argentine fly-half Juan Pablo Socino claimed 24 points with a try, two conversions, four penalties and a drop-goal.

His try was pivotal, cutting London Welsh's lead to 13-11, and was followed early in the second half by a second from scrum-half Joe Bedford, who battled his way over the London Welsh line.

What particularly delighted the Titans' coaches and fans at Clifton Lane yesterday afternoon was the fighting spirit the team showed throughout after they were losing 10-0 after only seven minutes.
