The Titans Youth Team were looking to bounce back from their disappointing loss to Leeds whilst Gateshead were seeking revenge for their opening season-loss to the Titans.
The Titans, coming off their season opening win against Lancashire last week, were looking to continue their good form against the Hornets. This season Hull had moved into a fantastic new ground at Brantingham Park, and were looking to revenge their 2 losses to the Titans last year.

Titans season opener was a 3 hour road trip up to sunny Gateshead where the weather and the hospitality never faltered. The Titans squad was boosted by several Bolton Bulldogs players, including GB Youth call-up LB Mike Ainscow who joined when they pulled out of the league just 2 weeks ago.
