TAUNTON Rugby Football Club have confirmed two new signings for the Titans in preparation for the upcoming season.

First off, the club announced back rower Will De Boehmler as the first signing for the 2023/24 season.

De Boehmler started playing rugby in Oman when he was 9 before he came to England and began to take the game more seriously at Claysemore Prep where he started in the 2nd Row up until the age of 14 when he moved to the back row.

He then moved to a local school Kings Taunton in which he captained the school 1st XV before he then went to University in Exeter and won the Bucs Final.

He was also selected to play for England Students and was involved in beating France Away.

On the signing of Will, Tony Yapp said: "Having worked with Will at Exeter University for the last 3 years I'm excited to be adding him to the Titans squad, he's a very strong ball carrier and physical defender with an impressive work rate."

As well as that, the club confirmed the signing of Luke Bralsford for the 2023/24 season.

Bralsford is the second player to join the club fresh off the back of winning the Bucs super rugby final with Exeter University.

Yapp added: "Luke's an uncompromising backrow who's biggest asset is his unbelievable work rate! He will also add great physicality and reads the game exceptionally well, another quality addition to an already impressive Titans pack."

In other news at the club, former Taunton RFC player Sam Skinner has been selected for the Scotland squad in the upcoming Rugby World Cup.

A spokesperson from the club said: "Congratulations to former Titans player Sam Skinner on his selection in the Scotland squad for the upcoming world cup in France.

"We look forward to seeing you compete on the biggest stage."

Also, visitors to Veritas Park in recent months will have noticed the smart new stand on the Railway Touchline of the Titans’ pitch.

Although spectators have been able to watch games from the new seats, Taunton RFC has held back on publicity until the project is complete.

The club’s Nick Mason added the thanks of all concerned at the club and pointed to the future, saying, “This shows the way things are developing here at TRFC and reflects the club’s ambitions.”

Now, with the addition of the filming tower, the structure is ready to be unveiled at the start of Titans’ new season when the county town side takes on the historic Blackheath FC.
