Rotherham Titans are currently off the pace slightly, sitting seventh in the table, five points adrift of fourth-placed Bedford Blues - sitting in that last play-off place.

As the teams take a weekend off from the league to contest their latest British & Irish Cup encounters, Dave Craven - one of The Yorkshire Post’s union writers - joins SportsTalk host Phil Harrison to discuss the merits of all three Yorkshire clubs hoping to make it through to the end-of-season play-offs.
