Titans looking so impressive


There has been a quiet confidence about Taunton Titans in National Two South this season.

Head coach Tony Yapp and his management team released very little about the team’s prospects prior to the start of the season, so supporters did not know what really to expect when the season got underway at what is now known as the Commsplus Stadium.

Yapp veered away from loan signings and instead strengthened his team all-round. The result is that Titans went into yesterday’s testing game at Bury St Edmunds with a 100 per cent record.

The Titans had maximum points from their opening six games and a two-point lead over second-placed Chinnor. Last weekend, Titans hammered Worthing Raiders by a record score of 81-14. “The Taunton faithful
witnessed the Titans’ game-plan come to fruition in spades as they watched their side demolish a useful Raiders outfit,” said Titans’ spokesman Dick Macey. “It was not just the scoreline that was so impressive but the manner of victory.”

The home side never looked back after Andy Hamilton snapped up a try within five minutes. The dependable Gary Kingdom converted and went on to collect a total of 24 points.
