RUGBY UNION: Honesty is key to Welsh form says Titterrell
Andy Titterrell says an honest assessment among the squad helped London Welsh return to form against Cornish Pirates.
And the Exiles hooker is backing them to build on that display when they face Leeds at Headingley tomorrow.
Welsh top the Greene King IPA Championship table with five wins from wins, but victory over Pirates came after two defeats in the British & Irish Cup.
“In those matches people were given an opportunity to play and for whatever reason we didn’t click as well,” said Titterrell “After those two losses, we took a good look at ourselves.
“We just worked hard as a squad and were very honest with one another.
“I think we played with the right sort of fear against the Pirates and we will do exactly the same on Sunday.
“We want to put down a marker with this game.
“We won’t look at Bristol yet (whom they play on November 10). We’ll look at Leeds first.”
Titterrell, who is a former Leeds captain, knows a real test is in store at Headingley.
“Leeds have had a great start to the season,” he said.
“They were unlucky to lose their first match against Nottingham and have won their last four.
“We knew that Leeds would be one of the top three or four sides this season.
“Without a doubt, we have got a tough game coming up this Sunday.”
