TITANS SEASON 13/14

01 01


PRESIDENT’S WELCOME WELCOME TO HYDE PARK

Good afternoon everyone, today I’d like to extend a warm welcome to the players, Committee and supporters from Canterbury. I hope they had a good journey from Kent to the West Country, these 200+ mile trips make for a very long day but we all hope the rugby on the field makes it worthwhile for everyone.

If you wish to get involved please see one of the Friends Committee or indeed any Management Committee member who will gladly point you in the right direction.

Our visitors had a good win last week against a strong Chinnor side, whilst the Titans fans witnessed another ‘win that got away’ in Redruth having been reduced to 14 men after just 4 minutes with scrum half Stuart Townsend shown a red card for an alleged stamp.

Regarding fund raising; there are many ways you can help, not least of all by match or ball sponsorship. This is an ideal method of enjoying a Saturday’s sport by inviting friends, customers or clients to the Hyde Park pre-match hospitality. You will not be disappointed!

The Titans fought long and hard to get a deserved win but sadly kicks at goal were missed and a conversion attempt sailed wide with the score at 19-18 and just minutes to go.

Just being a Titans supporter helps the cause, and once again ask I all Titans fans today to collectively be the ‘16th man’ and give the lads your all from the touch-line. You can be the difference between winning and losing!

A successful conversion would have given the Titans a one-point advantage and the hope of hanging on for a win; alas it wasn’t to be. We did however get a losing bonus point. There is still not much to choose between many of the sides in this league, with every team having strengths and weaknesses. The key of course is to work out where the weaknesses are, and to this end the Titans coaching team work tirelessly to find that edge over the opposition. The Friends are again having a pre-match lunch today, and I thank the organisers for raising much needed funds for the Titans. As I have mentioned in the past this is not 02 02

an exclusive gathering of people but just a group who are like-minded and who want to see Taunton play rugby at the highest sustainable level.

TITANS SEASON 13/14

Talking of support I ask you to please be mindful that Taunton Rugby Club will not tolerate referee abuse, and request you respect the officials at all times. They do a tremendous job, travel hundreds of miles to officiate, and also want to enjoy the afternoon. I hope you enjoy the Hyde Pak experience this afternoon and look forward to seeing you back again soon for more fantastic national league rugby action.

WWW.TITANSRUGBY.CO.UK


TODAYâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S OPPOSITION WHO ARE THEY? Canterbury RFC

WHERE ARE THEY FROM?

Canterbury RFC, Merton Lane North, Nackington Road, Canterbury CT4 7AZ

COLOURS

Black and Amber or Blue

HISTORY

Canterbury Rugby Football Club was founded in 1929 initially playing on a hired pitch and enjoying the facilities and hospitality of a local pub as their base. During this time they relied on local working men of which many were involved in the arable farming industry. Over the years they built themself into a reputable club and moved to more permanent surroundings before eventually settling at their current Merton Lane home. They initially struggled with the inception of league rugby but worked hard to eventually become the first Kent-based club to play in the National Leagues after promotion in 2005/2006. Despite a brief slip back down a level they returned to ply their trade in a competitive National Two (South). They boast five senior teams, a ladies side, and a healthy youth section from U9s through to U18s.

HONOURS

Canterbury RFC first tasted success in the county competition in 1975 but had to wait another 30 years before winning the cup again. That victory over Westcombe Park inspired a dominant four-year run with victories over Blackheath on each of the three other occasions. The 2005/2006 season not only saw them retain the county cup trophy and win promotion to the National Leagues but also saw recognition when the side was named Rugby World magazines coveted Team of the Year.

HEAD TO HEAD

League meetings stand at two a piece with the spoils last year each going to the home side. Taunton travelled in late November to play in appalling weather and suffered a 29-10 defeat but controlled the return match to claim a 31-17 victory in the closing stages of the season. Both sides come into the game with two wins and three losses but the visitors have two more bonus points seating them above Taunton in the table as it stands.

LAST MATCH - 05/10/13 REDRUTH 24-18 TAUNTON TITANS

A nerve-wrecking encounter between the Titans and Redruth saw the brave visitors play almost the entire match with 14 players before finally succumbing 24-18 to the Reds. Titans started brightly enough, and were using pace and width to push deep into the Redruth twenty-two in the early moments. In the fourth minute a Titans ruck formed following a charging run by prop Jake Woolmore, and in the ensuing melee Redruth flanker Keiron Smith went off his feet. As referee Phil Watters blew for the penalty Titans scrum half Stuart Townsend brought his boot down on the shoulder of Smith as he lay on the ground. It was to be a rash decision for the talented youngster and a red card was brandished. Now down to 14 players with nearly the entire match remaining, the task lying in front of the Titans was enormous. Redruth did their utmost to capitalise on the numerical advantage, eventually pinning the Titans into the far left corner of the pitch with a succession of scrummages. The defence was spirited but eventually gave way to allow Chris Fuca over; Westren converted for a 7-0 lead. Titans rallied, and their expansive play yielded some positive passages of play with Skinner and Davies both making good breaks. Redruth again used their pack to good effect, successive penalties were kicked 10

into the corner and a powerful catch and drive was enough to give Keiran Smith the chance to score, Westren again converting to move further ahead at 14-0. The Titans refused to break however and more good possession set up a penalty chance for Kingdom, but his kick sailed wide in what was to be a mixed afternoon for him with the boot. The tenacity of the visitors paid off in the 32nd minute when a Redruth scrum on their own 5m line was well disrupted by the Titans. Reds hooker Neil Turner saw yellow and just 30 seconds later Jon Gatford barged over following a fine catch and drive. 14-5. With Redruth failing to add to their tally and looking decidedly average in ambition, the Titans were instead growing in confidence. In the final minute of the half they won another deserved penalty, and this time Kingdom was on target. Halftime 14-8. Redruth got the perfect start to the second half. A ruck on the Titans twentytwo saw the ball fed to Jake Rayment and his run wrong-footed the stretched defence, the back rower touching down near the posts. Westren struck the upright with his conversion. 19-8. The defensive error seemed to ignite the Titans. Kingdom missed another kickable penalty but back they came again, the WWW.TITANSRUGBY.CO.UK


forwards especially working relentlessly to gain territory. They got their reward in the 56th minute when a penalty set up the catch and drive five metres out. Ben King gratefully touched down from the back of the wellexecuted maul to bring the Titans back to 19-13 behind. Reds second row Damien Cook saw yellow in the 62nd minute, and with the sides once again on equal numerical terms the Titans forwards were soon back in their favourite corner of the pitch as Redruth struggled to contain them. In the 67th minute justice was duly served as number 8 Dan Lee banished the memory of his earlier defensive lapse with a superhuman charge to the line from a five metre scrum.

With the score now 18-19, and the large home crowd nervously holding their breath, Kingdom had the chance to put his side ahead. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be however, as his miskicked effort went well wide of the posts. Having used their get out of jail card Redruth gave it one last big effort to make the game safe. After weathering a final flurry of Titans attacks they earned a penalty and kicked the ball into Hellfire Corner for the inevitable lineout and drive. The Titans held firm, and a messy series of close rucks in the final minute gave the visitors a scrum. Redruth had the final say however, and drove the five metre scrum backwards with the ball spilling lose for Ashley Hoskins to dive on it and score. Queue some jubilant but very relieved Reds.

HYDE PARK WELCOME ALL TO THE HOME OF NATIONAL LEAGUE RUGBY IN SOMERSET From the best in food, beer and wine to attentive and professional waiters and hostesses, Taunton Titans offer some of the highest quality of sporting hospitality in the region. Rugby is a game that has developed over time a number of values that guide the way the game is played and how players, coaches, officials and supporters conduct themselves. The core values we aspire to are firm and inclusive. All spectators are kindly requested to:

••

Respect guidance from the Club with regard to spectator behaviour.

••

Acknowledge good individual and team performance from all players, irrespective of the team in which they play.

••

Respect match officials’ decisions, even if they appear to make a mistake.

••

Never verbally abuse players, coaches, match officials or fellow spectators. Such behaviour can create a negative environment and the behaviour of others will often reflect this.

••

Acknowledge effort and good performance.

••

Verbally encourage all players in a positive manner, shouting ‘for’, not ‘at’, the players.

••

Never ridicule any individual player, regardless of the team in which they play.

1. You have been with the Titans for a while now, what are your hopes for the season? We all want to improve on last season and I think that with the talent we have within our squad we can be pushing the top five and maybe even for promotion. If not this season then it has to be our aim for the next. 2. How have you found the Titans set up this season on and off the field? It is always improving both on and off the field and this continues into this season. The addition of Chris Brown to the coaching staff has transformed our set piece and the players are responding well in training and matches.

3. What have you enjoyed the most in your Titan’s experience so far? The atmosphere within the squad is always good and the lads all get on and push each other. I like playing with likeminded players who all want to ‘have a go’. 4. Which players in the Titans squad do you get on with the most and why? An old friend of mine William Webster joined the Titans ranks this season. He is a great player, always good for use as a door mat and also good for a bit of banter and a joke. 5. What is the atmosphere like within the Titan squad as a whole and how much banter is there? It is good. There is tonnes of banter flying around and there are the usual biters as well as the terrible come backs from the forwards. 6. Which teams are you looking forward to playing against the most this season and why? Hartpury is one I look forward to because they are always a strong side. 7. Who do you think will be challenging for the top honours and promotion this season?

Geese who are expected to continue their rise through the leagues, although they have not started their season well but it is early days still with respect to the league. 8. What do you think of the support that the Titans get at home matches? It is always good to have the support behind us, especially the home fans on match days at Hyde Park who make a lot of noise and rally us. It is also nice to see many familiar faces in the crowd at home with many also making the away games too. 9. How do you want the Titans supporters to think of you? I would like to be thought of as a hard working local lad that has represented the club through all age groups and always prepared to give 100%. 10. What do you do away from rugby? Over the summer I have massively got into train spotting (not the cult film) and love spending my free time around the local train stations. Alternatively, I can be found in the library touching up on my philosophy and increasing my knowledge of Orion’s belt.

Hartpury should be challenging along with London Irish Wild

Johnson banned from driving Martin Johnson has been banned from driving after being caught doing 107mph on a motorway. England’s Rugby World Cup winning captain was stopped by a police car on the M5 between J24 and J23 near Bridgwater as he drove his wife and two children from a break in Devon. The 43-year-old former England rugby manager, from Mowsley, Leicestershire, admitted speeding when he appeared yesterday at Taunton Magistrates’ Court. Johnson - who has three points for a previous speeding offence in 2010 - was banned from driving for 49 days, fined £800 and ordered to pay £115 in costs and victim surcharges. Johnson was ‘overtaking all other traffic’ in the fast lane in his Range Rover at 10pm on 13th August after a holiday in his family cottage near Salcombe, Devon, the court was told.

Premiership tighten salary cap rules Premiership Rugby confirmed on Tuesday that All Aviva Premiership clubs are now subject to a new, more transparent, salary cap monitoring and investigation system. Following a detailed consultation by the salary cap manager with all of the clubs on the operation and management of the salary cap, the Premiership Rugby Board has recently approved increased monitoring, investigation and transparency systems to support this important area of Premiership Rugby business. Premiership Rugby may now undertake an Investigatory Audit in addition to the current annual salary cap audit which can involve using independent experts, to access relevant records held by a club who are suspected of breaching the regulations. There will also be clear sanctions to deal with any club failing to co-operate.

Union return a step closer for SBW Sonny Bill Williams has made himself unavailable for the rugby league World Cup next month, fuelling speculation he may be planning a return to union. Williams, who was a member of the All Blacks team that won the Rugby World Cup in 2011, on Tuesday forfeited the chance to become a Rugby World Cup winner in both codes of the game. He also won a Super Rugby title in 2012 with the Chiefs before switching codes and winning Australia’s NRL last weekend with the Roosters. Williams is yet to reveal whether he will remain in league or return to union, most likely to the Chiefs.

San Siro gets 2015 Heineken Cup Final ERC has confirmed that Milan’s Stadio Giuseppe Meazza San Siro will host the 20th Heineken Cup Final in 2015, should the tournament continue. The Milan clash would only take place provided an agreement on a new European club rugby Accord for 2014/15’s Cup and beyond can be reached. “The possibility of a Milan 2015 weekend was raised at today’s (Monday, 7 October 2013) Italian European club rugby launch at the headquarters of Sky Sport Italia which was attended by the Head Coaches and captains of Italy’s two Heineken Cup clubs, Benetton Trevsio and Zebre, as well as the four Italian Amlin Challenge Cup clubs,” read an ERC statement released on Monday.

England finalise pre-RWC schedule England will play four Test matches in November 2014 at Twickenham Stadium against New Zealand, South Africa, Samoa and Australia. The matches will be England’s last opportunity to face Southern Hemisphere opposition ahead of the Rugby World Cup on home soil the following year. Prior to that England will play three Test matches in New Zealand in June 2014. “To be able to take on these teams in successive weeks is ideal preparation for the World Cup and will tell us a lot about where we are one year out,” said England head coach Stuart Lancaster. “All four are tough opponents and we are looking forward to the challenge.” The schedule is subject to final International Rugby Board approval. •

SRU happy to qualify for Europe Scottish Rugby Union CEO, Mark Dodson, has softened his stance regarding the Scottish sides - Edinburgh and Glasgow Warriors - being guaranteed a place in the Heineken Cup competition regardless of form in the Pro12. Qualifying by position would seemingly be no problem for Glasgow, who currently lead the Pro12 and finished in the top four last season, whilst Edinburgh made the Heineken Cup semi-finals in 2011-2012 despite finishing 8th the season before and are currently bottom of the league. “I’m not frightened of making sure that we can qualify into a merit-based competition,” said Dodson. “We would prefer to have one club guaranteed, but the fact of the matter is that if we are going to compete in Europe and be serious about the Heineken Cup then we have to have teams that can play at that standard.” 30

COACHES CORNER TELLING IT LIKE IT IS

Perceived risk, how do you beat a team that doesn’t really play rugby? Recently we have come up against three teams in Dings, Shelford, and Redruth who play a brand of rugby that involves pressure and kicking to position before an assault on your line when they get within twenty-two metres or have a shot a goal. The biggest challenge we face as coaches of the Titans side is how do we prepare a team to combat this? There is a stark choice. The first option is that you, as a team, enter into a ‘kicking for position’ duel and hope to overpower your opposition at the set piece, or with an organised chase you apply enough pressure to force the penalty or try scoring opportunity. This involves being more tactically astute and having greater organisation within your defensive set up, kick chase, and set piece/restart. For the rugby romantics amongst you, this serves up a fairly stale helping. With both teams entering into a low risk, no play reward system it doesn’t exactly light up the home crowd with optimism. More likely a Saturday afternoon ‘spectacle’ akin to two steam rollers pushing one another.

WWW.TITANSRUGBY.CO.UK

The other option is to vary your response to the ball being kicked to you by hanging on to it and not giving it back until you have scored a penalty or try. This is a higher risk strategy, but it also comes with higher reward. It is thrilling, spectators love it, and players feel the passion of the greatest game in the world. Next to that any children watching can see the reason why sport is for life and not just a passing phase. This will be the way we try to attack ‘kick first’ teams. Whilst sometimes this will lead to frustration over score lines when we don’t get it right, the prize of mastering this skill as a team is the accelerant we call success. It is this we seek, this we are heading towards, and once it’s mastered you’ll see the successful product out there on the pitch for you to enjoy and support. However, in the meantime, an interesting footnote; we have played more rugby, and had more possession against both Dings and Redruth, and yet lost both games. It is not a short-term journey, but nevertheless one that will reap reward, and pleasure in watching it begin to grow…

WORDS WITH WEBBS 100% SHANTER GUARANTEED!

I’m a nervous wreck! If you didn’t make the trip down to Redruth last Saturday… well, shame on you. You missed one of the tensest matches seen at the Recreation Ground in quite some time I’ll venture. Fourteen true Titans (and how apropos is that name, eh?) rolled their sleeves up and took it to the Reds in their own paddock no less. Not one of them came off the field that day not having given everything they had for the cause. What superb grit and character.

“CANTERBURY WILL BE ANOTHER TOUGH CONTEST FOR THE BOYS, LAST TIME THE TWO SIDES MET LUKE PLUMMER GRABBED A BRACE IN A WELL-DESERVED 31-17 VICTORY” Did they win? Well no, but they damn well should have done but for a bit more luck with the boot for the silver fox at the back known affectionately as ‘Donkey’. Don’t let match reports

TITANS SEASON 13/14

emanating from the Duchy fool you, Redruth were well and truly rocked and they knew it. Number 8 Dan Lee was immense in the second half. After his defensive lapse let in Redruth for a try he came back into the game like a man possessed, and when he scored himself his celebration and facial expression spoke of a player gratefully banishing a mistake in the best way possible. So onwards and upwards as they say. Canterbury will be another tough contest for the boys, last time the two sides met Luke Plummer grabbed a brace in a well-deserved 31-17 victory. Can the big man be the star of the show again today? I hope so; he’s capable of battering through even the biggest defence when he backs himself. Lastly, please do pop into the club shop when you can today. We’ve just added all manner of top quality Titans clothing courtesy of Canterbury NZ. You’ll find everything from polo shirts and replica jerseys to warm fleeces perfect for the coming winter, so be sure to check out the new stash!
