Ti­tans ‘blow hot and cold’

Western Daily Press (Saturday) - - Rugby -

TAUN­TON Ti­tans will be aim­ing to bounce back fol­low­ing their trounc­ing by Ton­bridge Jud­dian when they play at home to Old Reds in an all-West Coun­try clash in Na­tional Two South to­day.

Ti­tans have al­ready lost five matches this sea­son and have slipped from sec­ond to sixth in the league ta­ble.

Long-serv­ing Ti­tans pres­i­dent Jack Matthews said: “The side is lack­ing con­sis­tency – we blow hot and cold. Our coaches are try­ing to ad­dress the sit­u­a­tion. We went to Ton­bridge think­ing we could get a re­sult, but we got what we de­served (a 46-17 de­feat).”

The pre­vi­ous week­end, Ti­tans gave lead­ers The Rams a run for their money and they fielded a sim­i­lar side at Ton­bridge.

“I can’t ex­plain why we were so dis­ap­point­ing last week,” added the club pres­i­dent.

Fourth-from-bot­tom Old Reds have won just two of their 12 games so far this sea­son, but are al­ways com­pet­i­tive and will fancy their chances of mak­ing it an un­com­fort­able af­ter­noon for the off-colour Ti­tans.

Else­where, the West re­gion’s other two Na­tional Two South sides have mid-ta­ble af­fairs with Dings host­ing Guernsey, and Clifton en­ter­tain­ing Barnes.

In Na­tional League One, eighth-placed Cin­der­ford make the jour­ney to Rother­ham, who lie in sixth po­si­tion.
