This season Albion have a played 17 won 8 record to lie 7th in the National 1 table 12 points behind our 4th placed 1stXV. After a difficult start to the season Plymouth have hit a rich vein of form winning 4 games on the bounce including defeating Blackheath away last weekend. The reverse fixture against us in September saw the visitors win at home 17-5, games between the two sides are always physical and close, rarely being decided by more than one score.
After their Boxing day heroics at Bedford Blues the 1stXV came back to Earth with a bump at Esher last week, trailing 35-5 after 25 minutes and 49-22 after 60 minutes they staged a mighty fightback to close to 49-48 with 2 minutes to play before a miss-understanding saw the ball kicked dead after time had expired. The 15 try thriller which Ampthill edged 7 tries to 8 was wonderful festive fare for spectators if not for both defence coaches!
