There’s no such thing as an easy game in National Two South and so it proved again on Saturday, despite holding up the bottom of the league London Irish Wild Geese showed again why they can be such a difficult team to play against. They are one of those teams that on their day have the ability to put in a performance and upset any team they come up against. To make things even more difficult the heavens opened and the temperature dropped which aided the Geese in their search of an upset.
For us our performance wasn’t quite what we intended, We were fully aware of their ability to play so certainly didn’t take it lightly,we except they made things difficult for us and made the most of every opportunity they had to make the game tight going into the final 20 minutes,but the boys stepped up and played well to see out the end of the game.
Some may have expected a slightly bigger score line but credit to Geese they were committed and never gave up. If they can come out every week with the sort of energy they showed on the weekend they’ll soon start picking up wins. For us it’s a good 5 points on the road so although it was nowhere near a perfect performance it’s job done and on to another week where we’ll work hard and prepare well for what is expected to be a tough encounter against Henley Hawks on Saturday.
Henley v Titans games have always been tight encounters, So if you can make it we’d love to see you making some noise and supporting the boys down at the CommPlus stadium on Saturday.
