Albion Travel to the Midlands to Face Moseley

Latest News

Plymouth Albion will look to build on the momentum of last weekend’s win over Richmond when they travel to Billesley Common to take on Birmingham Moseley.

Tries from Tom Putt and Angus Hodges, as well as two penalties and a conversion from the former, secured victory last Saturday as the Janners climbed back into the top five in National League 1, one spot behind Moseley.

It brought an end to a two-game losing streak after a strong performance against Chinnor yielded just the one try in a 26-5 defeat; that was off the back of a brilliant display by Blackheath, who took a 34-12 win in London prior to the break.

Another weekend off will follow on from Saturday’s meeting in Birmingham, preceding our Men’s Day Out fixture against Rams at the Brickfields on 6 April.

Moseley head into Match Day 23 of the season having themselves succumbed to a superb performance by Blackheath at the Utilita. The Club ran out 36-12 winners last Saturday afternoon a week after Moseley claimed victory over Cinderford at home.

Our opponents this weekend have not lost a home game since their humdinger of an encounter with Rosslyn Park on 13 January – Park coming away with a 33-32 win. That was only Moseley’s second home defeat of the campaign, with Billesley Common proving a tough place to go and get a result.

Team News:

Ryan Lamb makes one change from the side that beat Richmond last week as Brad Howe sits this weekend out, while Torin Clarke comes into the back row. Jake Bond switches to Number Eight.

Tom Cowan-Dickie and Craig Duncan are both back in the match day squad on the bench.
