Martin Waddell, the coordinator for the Titans at Clydebank Rugby Club, told the Post: “The day went very well with 14 kids trying for the first time, and three coming back to training on the Sunday.

“One of these three at the end went right up to his dad and said he didn’t want to play football anymore.

“It was just a good, all-round, fun session with some of our established kids taking part along with some of our senior players.

“They played our famous game – Valley of Doom – where the seniors have to run from a gauntlet of balls being thrown at them by the kids, which produced some spectacular falls.”

Rugby is free to everyone at the Titans, with training taking place on Tuesdays at 6.30pm and Sunday afternoons at 12pm.
