Rotherham recorded their first win on the season as they put Italian club GRAN to the sword in a Parker Pen Shield clash at Millmoor.
The Titans lost the first-leg tie 33-41 but the win was never in doubt today as they gave their long-suffering fans their first taste of victory in the 2003-04 season. The win earns Rotherham a match-up with tournament favourites Viadana next weekend.
Fullback Jon Benson scored a try and kicked 12 points to earn man of the match honours, while winger Joe Ewens bagged a brace of tries.
GRAN started well and were 10-0 up in as many minutes, but Rotherham replied with 42 unanswered points before a late try to visiting hooker Carlo Festuccia.
Rotherham: Tries - J Benson, G Lewis, J Rauluni, J Ewens 2; Pens - J Benson 2;
Cons - J Benson 3.
GRAN: Tries - S Caffaratti, C Festuccia; Pen - R Cook; Cons - R Cook, F Frati.
