RUFC - Coughlan on the Balls!

Rotherham United manager, Mark Robins has been quoted on here and in many articles in the media about his hatred (perhaps too harsh a word?) of the FA Cup balls and he even likened them to rugby balls.

Now, the Millers skipper, Graham Coughlan has his say.

'We've had these balls for a few seasons now and I remember Andy Gray talking about them last year,' he told MillersWorld. 'They don't bounce or roll truly and getting your touch right is more difficult than the normal balls we are used to in the league. They have a funny roll to them but it is the same for both teams so we aren't really complaining.'
