"The boys are looking forward to this game," said Albion's head coach. "They know they did well last Saturday despite losing to the Pirates and everyone is positive.

PLYMOUTH Albion will be hoping to complete a Yorkshire double tomorrow when they entertain Leeds at Brickfields.

Nat Saumi's side overcame Doncaster in their opening home match of the season before losing 19-17 to a late penalty at the Cornish Pirates last Sunday.

Despite last week's defeat, Saumi felt there were plenty of positives to take from the game and he is hopeful his side can make it two home wins out of two against Leeds.

"The boys are looking forward to this game," said Albion's head coach. "They know they did well last Saturday despite losing to the Pirates and everyone is positive.

"We beat Leeds down here last year and we will try and give them another good game this time around."

Albion make five changes to their team that came so close to beating the Pirates at Mennaye Field.

Rhodri McAtee, Paul Bailey and Herbie Stupple are injured and are replaced by Tom Bowen, Toby Howley-Berridge and Rupeni Nasiga.

The other changes see Lloyd Fairbrother and Ruairi Cushion return to the starting line-up.
