Albion Look To Get Back To Winning Ways – Match Preview

Latest News

After two weeks on the road, Albion are back at home this weekend as they get set to host Birmingham Moseley to see out November.

We have taken victory in two of our three encounters so far this month, and we took a point from last weekend’s meeting with Richmond as we fell to a 36-22 defeat.

It could prove crucial come the end of the season that we did not leave London empty-handed as we continue our dice with Rams and Chinnor for top spot; we remain very much in the conversation with the leaders.

Thus far, we have taken victory in all of our home games in 2023-24, and we come up against a Mossley side on Saturday whose form has been excellent of late.

The Midland-side have won five in a row since their defeat at the hands of Bishop’s Stortford at the end of September, taking victory last week against Blackheath as the two played out a tight afternoon of rugby.

Birmingham have taken some impressive away wins this term against Rosslyn Park, Darlington Mowden Park and Cinderford, making them a tough challenge at the Brickfields on Saturday.

Team News:

Jenson Boughton comes back into the starting line-up at Tighthead Prop as Dan Pullinhger moves to Loosehead and Ramaz Rukhadze goes from the bench.

Hallam Chapman returns having been unavailable last week, with Angus Hodges moving back into the back row. We welcome back Brad Howe after a period on the side lines; he come in to replace Sam Daly after he took a knock against Richmond last weekend.

Morgan Stone replaces Jack Oulton at Scrum-Half, while Connor Eastgate starts at Fly-Half in lieu of Phil Jones. Pita Ratukadreu is back with us on the wing, and Jesse Lowe has recovered from illness to return to the Centre.

Callum Davies is set to make his first league appearance for Albion off the bench; he is joined there by Rukhadze, Jake Bond, Tom Putt and Seta Raumakita.
