About the Titans

The Taunton Titans currently play in National League 2 South Level 4 in the RFU structure. The team moved through the leagues to their current division where they have been since the 2010 – 2011 following consecutive promotions. In their first season in the league they finished 7th, then after a couple of seasons of settling, in they have not finished below 6th since 2013 – 2014.

The Titans Head Coach is Tony Yapp, who has been at the helm since the 2011 – 2012 season and has built a great off field team. The forwards are coached by the experienced Chris Brown, with two player coaches Gary Kingdom and Julian Salvi. The off-field staff include the Strength and Conditioning coach Lyndon Lane, physios Adam Rutter and Sandra Williams along with Team Manager Keith Brooking and kit manager Mo.

The Titans train twice a week and the squad is made up of local players in the South West from both Somerset and near neighbours Devon & Dorset. The squad has been fairly consistent over the years which has enabled a lot of the players to earn over 100 league games for the club.

The Titans continual growth has led to several players moving on to play at a higher level with players moving on to play for teams in the Championship as well as some getting full time contracts and the chance to play in the Premiership with both Exeter Chiefs and Bristol Bears.

In all their glory.
