AFTER back-to-back wins, Taunton Titans are aiming to make it three in a row for the first time since early February and keep the momentum going into a tough finishing straight, writes Keith Brooking.

Not that this Saturday is going to be easy as they head to Dry Lease, the home of Henley Hawks (ko 3pm). 

Henley were in National 1 last season but have found the going tough this year, though with four wins from five matches they have moved away from the relegation battle. 

As the pressure has begun to ease, they have been scoring plenty of tries – 24 in their last five games – so the Titans’ defence will be tested this weekend.

In the previous fixture it was the Titans that were running in the tries, with Dan Frost grabbing three of the five scores in a 38-27 win.

Having fallen out of the promotion race, last week Taunton gave game time to some of the Warriors players who have shone during the year. 

Winger Tim Thompson scored, prop Charlie Tribble did 75 minutes’ work, and Josh Mynett and Tom Hooper came off the bench, showing that the choice to join the South West Pilot League has paid off, with players being able to step up to the first team without any issues.
