Warning: Andy Titterrell says London Welsh are not the finished article

First published in London Welsh by

Former England hooker Andy Titterrell has warned the Championship that London Welsh are far from the finished article.

The Dragons secured an opening day 24-13 win over Bedford on Saturday, to go some way to erasing the memory of relegation from the Premierhip last season.

Titterrell only switched to Old Deer Park in the summer from Edinburgh and he likes what he sees.

“It’s always encouraging to get your first game out of the way and to get a win. That was our main objective but from the signs we showed on the pitch, there’s obviously plenty more to come,” said Titterrell, a tourist with the British & Irish Lions in 2005.

“That’s an encouraging sign – knowing that we’re a long way off being a complete side. But it’s been back to the drawing board this week with Nottingham on Sunday posing different threats.”

10 days on and London Welsh are riding in second place in the Championship, one of only two unbeaten teams, with some fine tries behind them (and two four-try bonus points), a remarkable place-kicking sequence by the ever young Gordon Ross and a pack pulling its weight and more than holding its own against the opposition. The current squad would possibly have troubles in the Premiership but for the Championship it is doing just fine.


Richmond and area residents have long given London Welsh great support at Old Deer Park and can still support the first XV by joining the London Welsh Supporters' Club and travelling by coach in good company from Old Deer Park, Kew Road to home and away matches wherever played The loyal local support is still valued also at amateur team fixtures - they still train at ODP and play their home games there, and they too are riding high at the moment.
