After the snow postponed the return fixture between the Titans and Henley luckily the weather has held so that we haven't had a repeat of last season when we had the game at Dry Leas cancelled twice and ended playing over the Easter Weekend.

With the sun shinning Taunton head up the M4 hoping to gain some revenge from the fixture earlier in the season when the Hawks inflicted the Taunton's first defeat of the season.

In the middle of October Henley won at the Commsplus Stadium 13 - 17 with 2 tries apiece it was the boot of visiting fly half Roddy Giles the difference between the two teams.

With both teams having decent seasons they sit in 4th and 5th with the winner of this weekends fixtures seeing them move up to 3rd place and keep the pressure on Canterbury for the 2nd place play off position with 7 games to play.

From the last time these two teams met the Titans only have 8 of the match day squad involved that day in the squad this weekend with only 2 players starting in the pack, Connor Baker and Barrie-John Chapman and only 4 in the backs, Lewis Webb, Ollie Rice, Nick Mason & Gary Kingdom. From last weekends tough win away to Bury St Edmunds there are 4 changes with some enforced due to availability for the rearranged fixture.

In the forwards Julian Salvi comes in for the unavailable Sam Prior and in the backs Oli Massy-Birch, Ollie Rice & Freddie Fraser come in for Jacob Nash, James Keay and Toby East, respectively.
