Match report by Rob Kershaw
Rosslyn Park vs. Plymouth Albion RFC
Four games – two away, and two home – remain in Albions National League Rugby season, the first of which features a trip to London. It was against Rosslyn Park that the boys provided even further proof of their incredible mindset and togetherness, coming out 𝟭𝟯-𝟭𝟬 winners, in a remarkably tense encounter at the Brickfields.
A try from Albions own Georgian bull, Ramaz Rukhadze, and an exceptional display from the tee by Tom Putt got us the win that day, and as we head into the closing stages of an extraordinary campaign, we face them again in the return fixture.
We come into this weekend having won four of our last six, including a tremendous win over league leaders Rams just under a fortnight ago. One of those was away against Hull, and we have recorded two other victories on the road this season – what a time this would be to make it a fourth.
Park have tasted heavy blows in two of their last three, although that is well and truly put into perspective when you look at their opponents – Cambridge and Rams. They managed to right the ship last time out when they hosted Birmingham Moseley, so both sides head into the encounter – largely – with their tails up.
One position, and five points, that’s all that separates Ryan Lamb’s men and Rosslyn just ahead of us in the battle for fourth… so Saturday is set to be a big occasion!
Roughly four hours up the M5 and the M3 will take you past Exeter, Yeovil, Gillingham and Reading, as you approach South-West London on Saturday. Seats are still available on the supporters’ coach – just email email@example.com for more info!
Temperatures should remain just above 10 Degrees Celsius on Saturday afternoon in London, but there is still a slight chance of rain.
