Season Starts Against Titans This Saturday

28/09/2011 09:30

The Hull Wasps will welcome one of the leagues newcomers this Saturday to the Bonus Arena when the Wasps tip off the new league campaign against Oldham Titans.

Oldham return national league after a 15 year absence from this level. 

Head Coach Matthew Fawcett shared his thoughts on the Titans. "Oldham are a team we actually do not know anything about. They havent played in any of the previous seasons against the Wasps. We are all preparing behind the scenes at practice to make sure that we are ready and thats all we can do. As a team we can not afford to take any team lightly and must come to every game prepared to battle for 40 minutes."

The Wasps are coming off a win against the Doncaster League All -Stars last weekend and are looking to take the positive from that game forward.

"In the first half we controlled the game and looked comfortable. That was our downfall in the 3rd quater. We allowed the opposition a chance to sneak back into the game when we should of put it to bed. In the 4th quater we did manage to close the game out and we will be taking lessons away from the game. Overall we did a great job rebounding the ball and being physical. Matt Brutnell and Adrian Blatherwick both had good games and stepped up when needed."

Come down this weekend and see if the Wasps can get out to a winning start against Oldham Titans. 

All the action tips off at 7.30pm with doors opening at 6.45pm.
