Titans Rugby’s provisional u13 VKB Rugby Week squad is looking very strong. Looking ahead to the VKB Rugby Week, which kicks off on Thursday 23rd June 2016 in Frankfort, Free State. Titans will face Freestate Platteland, KOSH and Griffons C, with the first game on Thursday, two more on the Friday, and the finals on Saturday 25th June 2016.
It is more than likely, that should the Titans team win all their games, they would play against probable favourites Western Cubs, from the West Rand of Johannesburg, a strong team made up of ex red squad players and definite tournament favourites. The VKB Rugby Week will be held from Thursday 23rd to 25th June 2016 in Frankfort, Free State, at Hoerskool Wilgerivier.

Titans Rugby would like to thank James Small who conducted the jersey presentation as well as doing a bit of a talk with the team regarding big match temperament and pre-game nerves. The players and parents thoroughly enjoyed it.
Additionally like to thank our sponsors for ensuring that the players and management staff will look their best when they head down to VKB, in no particular order, WaterWays, Siatik, Mimmos, and Brightwood Consulting.
