Plymouth are ninth in the RFU Championship


Plymouth Albion visit the Memorial Stadium on Sunday (4.05pm KO) full of confidence following victory over London Scottish last weekend.

The Devon outfit raced into a 16-6 lead at the Richmond Athletic Ground after Aaron Carpenter dabbed down in the first period.

Bristol secured a 21-8 victory over Plymouth back in November, as George Watkins and Redford Pennycook crossed for the visitors either side of half time.

Plymouth have struggled on the road this season, winning two of their last nine games away from Brickfields.

Former Colstons and Bath fly half Paul Roberts in fine form so far during the campaign, scoring 123 points for Nat Saumi’s men.

Following Sunday’s game, Plymouth face Newcastle (13 April), before a trip to Doncaster (20 April).
