U13 and U15 Boys on to Playoffs, other weekend wins

Another rugby update from this past weekend. The Titans Senior Men opened things with a Friday evening match against the Rams.  The Rams are a large club and did not disappoint, our men struggled for the first half.  But, they found their groove and came away with a 38 – 12 win. Saturday was a big rugby day at Irish field.  The U13 boys started off at noon against the Saints, but unfortunately were not able to come away with the win despite a huge comeback push. The U15 boys faced the Saints right after, and dominated the match with a 61 – 0 victory, finishing the season schedule undefeated.  Lots of pictures thanks to Audrey and Lisa! Both the U13 and U15 boys will see some playoff games in a few weeks time!

Titans Men to play “Friendly” against the RAPTC RFC

Titans Men to play “Friendly” against the RAPTC RFC

Our Titans Senior men will be playing a friendly against the RAPTC RFC on July 12, 7:30pm kick off at Titans Rugby Park.  Below is a blurb about the RAPTC. Good luck boys, TITAN UP!! Royal Army Physical Training Corps Rugby Football Club  (RAPTC RFC) Bio:  RAPTC British Army – http://www.army.mod.uk/raptc/30470.aspx The RAPTC was formed in 1860 as the Army Gymnastic Staff. It was renamed the Army Physical Training Staff in 1918 and was given its present corps status by Army Order 165 in 1940. In November 2010 Her Majesty The Queen approved that the Army Physical Training Corps be re-titled The Royal Army Physical Training Corps. Based at the Army School of Physical Training (ASPT) in Aldershot, its instructors are attached to every battalion and regiment in the British Army. It is not possible to join the RAPTC directly from civilian life. Prospective PTIs must first join another regiment or corps and then qualify as Regimental All Arms Physical Training Instructor (AAPTI) after an 8 week course at the ASPT. They then return to their own unit and only after further experience can they attend selection for the RAPTC. If they pass the selection course they follow a 30-week intensive training course before qualifying as an RAPTCI and transferring to the RAPTC. Olympic medallist Kriss Akabusi was a Warrant Officer Class 2 in the RAPTC and Kelly Holmes a qualified PTI. Bio: RAPTC RFC –http://www.armyrugbyunion.org.uk/aru-info/history/corps-merit-table-championship/ The RAPTC RFC play rugby within the British Armed Forces (Army) Merit League 2, many of the players are affiliated to civilian clubs from around the local committees, when not on Military Duty.

Titans weekend update plus Canada vs Russia Highlights

Titans weekend update plus Canada vs Russia Highlights

Another big rugby weekend just passed! On Friday night both the Titans Senior Women and the Titans Senior Men faced off against the Calgary Saints.  The Women played a tough match and walked away with a commanding victory 44 – 5!  The Titans Senior also played a tough match against the Saints, and after being down for a part of it, smartened up and came back for a 38 – 17 win. Early Saturday morning the U13 and U15 boys faced off against the Calgary Canucks in Red Deer.  This match was pushed to early in the day due to the international match in Calgary later in the afternoon.  The U13 boys struggled with numbers, but fought hard en route to an uncharacteristic lost.  At the same time, our U15 boys played a very tough match up against a strong Canucks team.  After being down at the half, the U15s found another gear and fought back for a solid 41 – 24 victory. And then there were pancakes. But – the day wasn’t over yet!  A girls youth festival in Red Deer rounded out Saturday morning, and then Canada vs Russia awaited in the afternoon (here are the highlights from the test match)!  Canada played well and finished strong with a 46 – 21 victory. Thanks again to Audrey Jean McCaffrey for the U15 photos! One last note – Happy Father’s Day to all the Rugby Dads out there.             TITAN...
