THE fixtures have been released for Taunton Titans upcoming campaign in National League One.

The season will start at home as on Saturday, September 2, the Titans welcome a familiar foe in Blackheath back to Veritas Park.

With the National League now restructured into three regional divisions there are also encounters with a couple of newly promoted oppositions to look forward to in the shape of Sedgley Park and Leicester Lions.

Taunton will travel to Manchester on October 7 to face Sedgley Park Tigers before welcoming Leicester Lions, to Somerset on November 18.

Meanwhile Richmond, once a Premiership outfit, drops down to National One from The Championship and will be Taunton’s second home fixture on September 16.

Titans’ first away engagement of the new term will be a West Country derby at Plymouth Albion on September 9.

The return fixture is one to mark in the diaries just before Christmas on 16th December.

It wouldn’t be a day out at the rugby in Taunton without the traditional pre-match carvery lunch, the envy of many of Titans’ opponents.

Rugby-goers are encouraged to book ahead for these magnificent feasts by contacting the Commercial Team at TRFC.

Similarly there are a very few commercial packages remaining – again, contact the club’s office for more information.
