The lads have the upper hand on paper heading into this game, but considering the importance for points, Plymouth Albion will be looking to disrupt Sale FC’s momentum with a win at home this Saturday.

Fergus Mulchrone had an class game against Blackheath, picking up 2 tries and a Nat 1 ‘Player of the Week‘, well deserved praise 

Should be a cracking encounter with plenty on the line!
