the devils have the same problem raiders face aswell as Albion not to mention a host of other local sports in the area in that the local rag and media does the bare minimum if any to promote any of them.
Despite their own efforts to do pr via social media its increasing hard to see any reports on games on that site.

Our rag puts all its resources into kissing brents arse which we know of course, i can understand spotlight and westcountry news not running many stories given it has more to report on but brents herald has no excuses.

Preview by Albion

Plymouth Albion welcome Cambridge RFC to the Brickfields for their National League One game on Saturday, October 7 (KO 3pm).

Albion will be looking to build on last week’s seven try to four victory over Loughborough Students 28-49.

A closely-contested first half ended with the half time score level at 21-21, before the Devon side showed their dominance. Head coach Kieran Hallett was satisfied with the performance: “They had a couple of scores against the run of play but we felt comfortable that we could go up another gear. There was no panic and we pulled away in the second half.”

Hallett reserved particular praise for the set piece. He said: “It is becoming a real strength of ours. I am happy with the way the guys applied themselves. It was a long day, so to get up there and score that many points against a decent side was very pleasing.”

Fly half Dan Mugford chalked up an impressive individual tally of 19 points, kicking 100 per cent of his seven conversion attempts. Hallett recognizes the ‘Muggy effect’. He says: “It gives the rest of the side a bit of energy every time it happens. He’s playing well at the moment so hopefully he can carry on in that vein.”

Hooker Jamie Salter was singled out for his man of the match performance: “We scored a couple of driving maul tries that Salts got on the end of but he applied himself really well around the park. He’s an intelligent player who offers us different options. He understands what we are trying to do and he can benefit the team in his own way.”

Mid-table Cambridge are expecting a tough test when they travel west. Director of rugby Ross Stewart issued a stern warning after their 28-29 loss to Old Elthamians last week.

Speaking on the club website, he said: “If we play like that against Plymouth, they’ll put eighty points past us. We’ve got some work to do this week to sort that out.”

Hallett, who knows Stewart well, says: ”Whether that is a reflection on us or on them I am not entirely sure. They haven’t had the best of starts, but, watching some of their games, they have been unlucky. We will see what side turns up on Saturday, but we treat each team with due respect.

“Their set piece is good and they are very good up front. They lost a few players over the summer, which is perhaps why they haven’t kicked on from last year, but they still play some good stuff.

“Essentially, we want to preserve our home record. Every time we come out and play we know people are trying to knock us off our perch.”

Albion face a tough series of matches at the end of the month when they make the long trip north to league leaders Darlington Mowden Park before playing Rosslyn Park, Ampthill and Coventry in November.

Hallett is not looking that far ahead: “We are trying to go out and win every game. It is not a case of looking to future games, it’s asking what we need to do to beat the team that’s in front of us.”

Plymouth Albion team to face Cambridge at the Brickfields on Saturday, October 7, (KO 3pm):

15 Jordan Gott, 14 Matt Crosscombe, 13 Setareki Raumakita, 12 Dean Squire, 11 Jack Arnott, 10 Dan Mugford, 9 Cameron Setter, 1 Luke Chapman, 2 Jamie Salter, 3 Marcus Street, 4 Dan Swain, 5 Dan Collier, 6 Sean Lonsdale, 7 Sam Daly, 8 Eoghan Grace

Replacements

Herbie Stupple, Rupert Freestone, Matthew Shepherd, Joe Snow, Dan Pullinger.

Preview by Cambridge RFC with a history of Plymouth

Blood and Sand head to the South West hoping for a first win against Albion

This week the Blood and Sand travel to Devonport to take on Plymouth Albion.

Plymouth has always had a close association with the sea and sailors. It has seen the start of many epic journeys - though the sailors did not always make it home.

Francis Drake set sail on his circumnavigation of the globe from the old harbour at the mouth of the Plym. His aim was to harry the Spanish fleets off South America and California. It is claimed he left some of his sailors behind in Drake's Bay just North of San Francisco bay to form a new colony - leaving behind a brass plaque claiming all of North America for the British crown. Unfortunately no archaeological remains have been found. Well in the 1930s it appeared that the plaque had been uncovered and it was purchased by the Bancroft Library at the University of California, Berkeley and copies were everywhere - one was even given to Queen Elizabeth II. But it was a student hoax that had got out of hand. The perpetrators kept quiet. It was not until the 1970s that it was proved to be a fake - and only in 2003 was the full story established.

Drake returned a hero and became Mayor of Plymouth and later MP for the city. He sailed again on the mission to Singe the King of Spain's beard and to take on the Armada before finally being defeated in San Juan Puerto Rico and dying in Panama where he is buried at Portobello.

After the Glorious Revolution, William III sent out surveyors looking for a site for a new Royal Dockyard to complement the ones at Henry VIII had founded at Woolwich, Deptford and Chatham and navy's original base in Portsmouth. The Plym was deemed to narrow and instead the new dockyard was set up on the Tamar.

It was from Devonport that the then Lieutenant Cook sailed on his voyage to observe the 1769 transit of Venus from Tahiti. The purpose was to compare timings of the transit from different locations and hence through trigonometry determine the relative orbits of Earth and Venus. Unfortunately, an optical effect known as the Black drop makes observation of the exact times difficult - and hence observations were not as precise as hoped. Having completed the astronomical portion of the voyage, Cook set off to search for the supposes Terra Incognito Australis - the Southern Continent assumed to have to exist to counterbalance the land in the North. On the 6th October 1769 they did indeed spot land - having "discovered" New Zealand - Abel Tasman had mapped the West coast on his second voyage and of course it was known to the Polynesians. The following day, the Endeavour anchored in a wide bay and a party went ashore to look for supplies. Unable to find what they required, they called the location Poverty Bay.In the next bay, there were many Maori villages and supplies were easy to obtain - so this became the Bay of Plenty.

Cook circumnavigated New Zealand and sailed through the Cook Straight between the Islands before heading towards Van Diemens land. He mapped the entire East Coast of Australia - including Botany Bay, later to become Sydney, before returning home. Cook was promoted to Commander before setting out on a second voyages from Plymouth sailing further South to prove that there was no great continent. Another promotion to Captain followed with the option of honourable retirement - but he could not remain on land so volunteered for a third voyage. After an initial trip to Tahiti they sailed North, the secret aim of the expedition being to find the North West passage from the Pacific he was forced back by ice and chose to return to Hawai'i to resupply where he perished after an altercation with the natives.

The apprentices at Devonport Dockyard formed a rugby club Devonport Albion in 1876, while the same year Plymouth RFC formed. The two clubs merged in 1920 to be Plymouth Albion and moved to the Brickfields in 2003. They were at level 2 for 13 years before being relegate in 2015. They finished fifth in 2106 and second last season. This season they are sat in third. After a narrow defeat at Blackheath, they have had solid wins over Esher, Stortford, Fylde and Students. Their leading scorer is Dan Mugford, once of this parish and now in his second spell with Albion.

If you want to add to the support, it is a long drive or you could let the train take the strain. The 8:17 from Cambridge would let you catch a Great Western Railway train from Paddington at 9:57 which would get you to Plymouth for 1:11. This would let you stroll or get a bus to Brickfields in time for kick off. Though should you want to return on the day, you need to be on the 6:25 from Plymouth to Bristol.

If you do not want to make the trip, the 3rds are home to Saffron Walden II and would appreciate the support. After two games last week the 2nds have the weekend off.

The Blood and Sand know they need to capture and build on the form they showed in the second half if they are to come home with Plenty. If the first half side gets off the bus, it will be Poverty.

No mention on the Herald web or on radio Devon results yesterday

by Paddy Marsh

Plymouth Albion maintained their 100% home record this season but they will be disappointed with their performance against mid table Cambridge who took a losing bonus point from the match.

Plymouth went in the game averaging 45 points a match but struggled to put away a Cambridge side who defended very well, particularly close to their try line.

Plymouth had numerous chances to force their way over from close range but when their efforts continually hit the brick wall defence they lacked a plan B.

Plymouth appeared to have secured victory late in the game when Dan Mugford scored a try but in the end they were glad to hear the final whistle as Cambridge went in search of a try and conversion that would have given them a draw

A clearly disappointed Plymouth head coach Kieran Hallett said, “It was a poor game but we were also poor.

“Defensively we were OK but accuracy and execution wise we were way off the pace out there.

“We dominated the game but we haven’t come away with the outcomes we wanted.”

Hallett added, “I would question some of our decision making particularly at the end. I’m disappointed we didn’t get the bonus point but a win’s a win.”

Following their impressive win at Loughborough the previous weekend, Albion took the opportunity to rotate their starting line up.

Jordan Gott came in at full back for his first start of the season while Eoghan Grace took over as captain.

Albion put Cambridge under pressure early on and despite trying a series of forward drives they were unable to force their way over the tryline.

On only their second visit to the home 22 Cambridge took the lead when a speculative kick ahead bounced kindly for skipper Mike Ayrton who won the race to the touchdown.

Fly half Ben Penford missed the conversion before Albion took the lead on the half hour.

A crisp handling move put Jack Arnott clear on the left and a neat sidestep took the wing under the posts for an a good individual try.

Mugford converted to put Albion 7-5 ahead, which remained the score at the interval.

Albion stretched their lead early in the second half when hooker Jamie Salter finished off a catch a drive move to score his third try in the last two games.

Albion looked to have added a third try when replacement scrum half Joe Snow appeared to cross under the posts but after consulting his assistant the referee awarded a five metre scrum.

It took a fine piece of individual skill from Mugford to put Albion two scores clear.

Mugford put a well placed grubber kick behind the Cambridge defence and a good turn of pace enabled the fly half to get the touchdown.

Mugford missed to conversion before Cambridge notched the losing bonus point when replacement hooker Ean Griffiths forced his way over following a line out.

Plymouth Albion: J Gott, M Crosscombe, S Raumakita, D Squire, J Arnott, D Mugford, C Setter (J Snow 49), L Chapman (D Pullinger 61), J Salter (R Freestone 61), M Street (L Chapman 71 Salter 80) , D Swain, D Collier (H Stupple 66), S Lonsdale, S Daly, E Grace capt replacement not used M Shepherd

Hallett Positive Ahead of Caldy Test

Plymouth Albion make the long journey north to Merseyside to take on Caldy RFC in National League One on Saturday, October 14 (KO 3pm).

Albion go into the game following their 17-10 home win over Cambridge.

Head coach Kieran Hallett described last week’s match as something of a struggle. He said: “Cambridge were much improved. They were disappointed with the week before, wanted to prove a point and they did. They defended well, we struggled to break them down, but ultimately we came through a tough game and won.”

“We knew they were strong up front. We didn’t put enough tempo in the game to make a dent in that. They were quite happy absorbing what we were throwing at them and they defended well.”

Hallett had made a number of changes to the team that won at Loughborough Students the previous week. He added: “We always said in these opening months that we would try to give everyone an opportunity. We gave some new faces a chance to put their hands up. Some did and some didn’t. We are still trying to learn about our squad as a whole and starting to get a clearer picture.”

Despite his mixed feelings about the performance, Hallett is keen to take positives from the game. “We are still undefeated at home this year, we learnt more about our players and at times played some decent stuff. Jack Arnott’s try was good and probably the only time we put something resembling our structure together.

“We will be better having come through that game. Sometimes you have just got to figure out how to win and we did that. Conditions were tough as it was wet out there. We had something like eight maul opportunities five metres out and only took one. That’s frustrating, but if you are winning by fifty points every week you are not necessarily learning anything.”

Newly promoted from National League Two North, Caldy have impressed early on, winning two games and scoring seven bonus points to put them eighth in the table.

Hallett says: “Caldy score a lot of points and back themselves at home to run a lot of ball out so it will be a tough game.

“They try and play with width and a high tempo which makes it difficult to defend. They are still trying to get used to National League One level, but are dangerous and have got a few threats.”

Hallett is making a number of changes to the side that faced Cambridge. “We have got back a couple of the Exeter guys who had to rest. Ed Holmes and Harvey Skinner will come straight back in.

“There have to be consequences for our performance last week. We are getting to the point now when we want competition in the squad. Just because you play one week doesn’t mean you get to play the next. Guys have to know that when they come in they must perform and if they don’t then they won’t play.”

With five wins from six games, Hallett is pleased with his team’s overall start to the season: “It is positive without really playing at the level we want to. There is still plenty to work on as we go into the difficult November period.”

Plymouth Albion team to face Caldy at Paton Field, Thurstaston, on Saturday, October 14, (KO 3pm):

15 Matthew Shepherd, 14 Matt Crosscombe, 13 Dean Squire, 12 Harvey Skinner, 11 Jack Arnott, 10 Dan Mugford, 9 Joe Snow, 1 Will Norton, 2 Rupert Freestone, 3 Jack Owlett, 4 Sean Lonsdale, 5 Ed Holmes, 6 Eoghan Grace, 7 George Mills, 8 Herbie Stupple

Replacements

Dan Pullinger, Jamie Salter, Cameron Setter, Setareki Raumakita, John Kelly.

Plymouth Albion welcome Old Elthamians to Brickfields for their National League One game this Saturday, October 21 (KO 3pm).

Albion go into the game in second place following their 17-34 away win over Caldy.

Head coach Kieran Hallett says: “I was pleased with our win at Caldy last week. The only time we were troubled was the second period of the first-half when we went off-script a bit. We started giving them back the ball which was something we had talked about wanting to avoid.

“Caldy came at us and scored a couple of good tries and then it took a penalty and a score at the start of the second-half before we got the ball back. Once we did we didn’t give it up again.

“Had we stuck to the game plan for the full 80 minutes then I think we would have put a few more scores to our name. We are still a young group and we are learning every week whilst putting good results together.”

Currently sixth in National League One, Old Elthamians are the surprise package this season as the highest placed of the three newly-promoted teams following four wins – over Fylde, Loughborough Students, Caldy and Cambridge – and five bonus points.

Last week they managed to score three tries away from home against heavyweights Darlington Mowden Park before being over-powered 36-21.

The London club has achieved four promotions in the last six seasons under Director of Rugby and Managing Director Gavin Lach, taking the club from London Two to their current position.

Hallett has made some changes to this week’s squad. Centre Seta Raumakita replaces Dean Squire in the starting line up and Cameron Setter comes back in at scrum half. Forwards Dan Pullinger and Dan Swain make starts while prop Luke Chapman and second row Sean Lonsdale are named as replacements.

He says: “There seem to be different individuals stepping up for us in each game but they all know that everything that they do is for the team and it is all about the team. The boys are comfortable with each other; they are a good group and a tight group.

“We are getting to where we want to be and are working hard to get there. We are making fewer errors each week and identifying them when they happen. We are ready to take on anyone at the minute, we have won six on the bounce and we are scoring plenty of points every week. We are in a good place.”

With six wins from seven games, Hallett is pleased with his team’s overall start to the season: “It is positive without really playing at the level we want to. There is still plenty to work on as we go into the difficult November period.”

Plymouth Albion team to face Old Elthamians at Brickfields on Saturday, October 21, (KO 3pm):

15 Matt Shepherd, 14 Matt Crosscombe, 13 Seta Raumakita, 12 Harvey Skinner, 11 Jack Arnott, 10 Dan Mugford, 9 Cameron Setter, 1 Will Norton, 2 Rupert Freestone, 3 Dan Pullinger, 4 Dan Swain, 5 Ed Holmes, 6 Eoghan Grace, 7 George Mills, 8 Herbie Stupple (Captain)

Replacements

16 Luke Chapman, 17 Jamie Salter, 18 Sean Lonsdale, 19 Sam Daly, 20 Dean Squire

I was there too and i agree lots of errors. While the weather had an effect i dont think Albion could feel to hard done by with the result. Kicking was awful from Mugford which could have won the game that albion looked destine to lose at one point.

Did see at least 3 decent punch ups on the field behind the refs back though that i am amazed didnt get a card at least. Oh and a free program that in truth was a far better read than the pilgrim and less shit in between.

here is a matchday moment from albion again better produced too than argyle's. less is indeed more.

Raiders lost 74-71

i think it will take a few more games for this squad to gel which was plain to see but some good performances even if landing 3 point shots seems too much.

I think once they click they could reach play offs just this season and be on a more solid footing next season.

Albion lost 33-31 to Darlington. No promotion for them this year i feel and if the rumour i heard is true that they are running out of funds then i think this will be it for them.

albion 26 Rosslyn Park 26 last minute try got albion 2 points. Currently 4th in the table now pretty over in terms of promotion now seeing as Coventry are doing their best to copy hartpury last season. so its all to play for to finish 2 again which wont do the finances of albion any good considering its rumoured they are hitting shit creek again.
