Halfback Ash Taylor has returned to Titans HQ after a successful camp and match as part of the Indigenous All-Stars clash with the World All-Stars.
It was a convincing display from the Indigenous side and a week that Taylor will never forget.
“It was great to be a part of the week,” Taylor said. “I’ve never been part of anything like it before where we gave back to the community and to do it with the world’s best players was really good.”
A huge part of the week is the interaction with the community and is something that the Toowoomba junior thoroughly enjoyed.
“We had lots of kids come into camp and we also went out to a lot of schools.”
On the field and training paddock Taylor was a sponge when around Jonathan Thurston and was looking to gain any knowledge he could.
“I just tried to soak it all in throughout the week. He’s such a high-class player so just used the opportunity to learn.
“I was a little weary at the start of the game but once it was going and I got into the swing of it, I started to get a bit more confident.”
Although not present to watch the Titans 30-18 trial win over the Eels, Taylor said he did catch the highlights and was impressed with what he saw.
“It was a little scrappy from what I heard and saw but the boys enjoyed the hit-out.
“I’ll get a chance to be out there this weekend and we’ll get to work on combinations to get it right before the start of the season.”
