Ti­tans run amok with host of tries

The Rugby Paper - - Feature - ■ By KEITH BROOKING

TI­TANS put in a great per­for­mance to claim an em­phatic win.

They started with a bang as flanker Ratu Vaka­lu­tukali forced his way over. Gary King­dom added the ex­tras.

From the kick-off the ball went the length of the field and hooker Andy Hamil­ton, mak­ing his first start, plunged over.

King­dom then crossed be­fore the Raiders got on the score sheet with a try by fly-half Mathew Mclean, who con­verted.

That was as close as they came as Ti­tans ran in an­other ten tries.

Vaka­lu­tukali went in for his sec­ond, be­fore Tom Popham and Fred­die Fraser both dot­ted down. Then, on the stroke of half-time, Vaka­lu­tukali scored his third. King­dom con­verted one.

The sec­ond half was much the same as King­dom went over for his sec­ond try, be­fore the Raiders and Mclean scored their sec­ond con­verted try.

Popham scored his sec­ond be­fore winger Ol­lie Rice got on the score sheet. An­other player to score a dou­ble was Hamil­ton, be­fore the ref­eree awarded Taun­ton a penalty try as the scrum was rum­bling over the line.

The Ti­tans had the fi­nal word on the whis­tle as Dan Frost went over in the cor­ner. King­dom con­verted from the touch line to take his tally for the day to 24 points.
