Titans turn on the style in second half


TAUNTON Titans bounced back after three successive losses to beat Old Redcliffians 49-17 at home in National Two South.

Titans' president Jack Matthews has called for more consistency from his side and Taunton were certainly good value for their victory which lifts them to fourth in the table.
However it was not as one-sided as the scoreline might suggest with Old Reds scoring a try after only two minutes and leading 17-14 at half time.
Titans hit back with five unanswered tries in the second half, including three in the first ten minutes.
Old Reds had their moments but the Titans' defence, which has wilted in the past, was excellent with Polish international Arun Struminski saving two certain Reds' tries with speedy covering tackles.
There were also quality displays by improving scrum half Jacob Nash, stand-in skipper Lewis Webb at outside half and lock Dan Ogden.
Chris Francis snapped up two tries for Titans, with others coming from the returning Julian Salvi, Jacob Nash, Ollie Rice, Sam Brown and Issac Dalton, with Gary Kingdom converting all seven tries.
Scott Coaster and Henry Bird scored tries for Old Reds with Kieran Hill kicking a penalty and two conversions.
Titans are away to Dings Crusaders on Saturday while Reds are home to Worthing.
