TITANS have been warned to expect a tough time in National One next year.

While it's still not mathematically certain that they will be relegated from the Championship, the Clifton Lane men are already drawing up plans for life in National One.

And they've been told not to expect an easy ride, especially being the biggest modern-day name to drop into the third tier.

The Advertiser this week carries a special report on life with the Ampthills and Elthamians of the rugby world, including talking to leading rugby watcher John Wilkinson, who helped rescue Coventry from near extinction a decade ago.

"After dropping into National One it's been a case of re-building," said John. "But I can't stress enough that it is very, very difficult to get out of this division."

Don't miss the full report in this Friday's Advertiser.

Meanwhile, Titans take on Richmond this Saturday in their final British and Irish Cup game at Clifton Lane, the competition being scrapped at the end of the season. Kick off is 2pm.
