Cash-strapped Rotherham have been given the backing of the town’s rugby team in their bid to stave off extinction.
The Millers are on the brink of going out of business, while they are also plummeting towards relegation as they currently sit 23rd in League One and are two points adrift of safety following a nightmare spell for the South Yorkshire outfit.
However, salvation could be found in the shape of Rotherham Titans, who have emerged as backers to help the Millers in their plight.

Andre Bester, head coach of Rotherham Titans, told the club’s website: ‘For us it is very important that there is a good rugby club and football club in Rotherham.

‘It is the cornerstone of what Rotherham has been built on. It would be disastrous if we lost the club.’
