Bury St Edmunds Match Preview

This weekend Taunton Titans entertain Bury St Edmunds at the Commsplus Stadium where they will be hoping to show the home crowd a better showing than their last home game.

Bury St Edmunds have won 4 and lost 4 this season and the trip down to the West Country won’t hold any fear for them as they have won 2 of their away games.

Last season the Titans won both fixtures but were denied a bonus point from both games by some great defence from Bury St Edmunds. In fact it was some excellent defence from the Titans that saved the game in Bury St Edmunds last season when second row Stu Persey made a try saving tackle in the corner in the last minute of the game to secure the win on the road.

This week despite the win last weekend the Titans have made a few changes to the starting team. In the front row Isaac Dalton and Alfie Petch swap places with Dalton being handed the starting place and Petch on the bench. In the second row Stu Persey & Milo Reynolds do likewise with Stu Persey given the opportunity to replicate his heroic defence. In the back row Sam Prior comes in at number 8 with Dan Lee moving to 6 and Ratu Vakalutukali given a deserved rest and a place on the bench. At half backs we see the Lewis Webb& Toby East combination with the Nick Mason & Ollie Rice all moving inone place to make way for Noah Sixton on the wing. Jacob Nash also makes a welcome return to the bench.
