Igwok, great research! Thanks for the considerable time you must have spent on this, very interesting. I think much will depend on who's available for the trip, Exeter and injury wise. Another very difficult away trip but an invaluable away win is possible.

A very interesting read, should be a close encounter.

Well done Igwok, as previously mentioned, a well researched report.
It makes me wonder as to how you are not higher up in the prediction league ?

Semper Sersum.

Albion match preview and team for Blackheath announced


A few changes, especially on the bench. Herbie is back. Hope he lasts longer this time.

I don't feel too confident of a win but ... fingers crossed.

Thanks Igwok for the preview. Good work.

Dunno about the prediction league. Somebody seems to leave a 0-0 prediction for almost every match, and maybe that is what is saving me from 'supporting the whole table'.

In separate news Ashlee Crouch is off to play in NZ. He has played occasionally for Albion this season, but was making a reprise performance for Barum last weekend. Good luck to him at Uni of Canterbury.

Match report from Blackheath's point of view

JS, amongst others, will probably think that was one that got away., especially with Blackheath a man short for the last 10. A low pack and always an extra man wing-wards seemed to do for us. That and the frustrating penalty count. With a little more concentration and glue that game was ours. One push away from, at the very least, two bonus points. Story of our season tho. That was probably our strongest squad. The bench all starters on another day. When we get there, it's going to be very good. It's the when, isn't it.
Congrats to Jamie Salter (who we don't call JS) on 100 caps. Heading to the Greats Board.
And Blackheath, "Club". 1858 n all that but the new Well Ground ground doesn't leave a great sense of history to the visitor. Crowd probably didn't top 400 + our 50. But I really like National One road trips. Good Sri Lankan meal afterwards so all in all, no lasting complaints. Onwards and upwards.

Totally agree. It was a very good game to watch. But silly penalties against us . Blackheath kicker certainly had his kicking boots on that day. Gutted at the end for the lads to come away with no points. Standing next to their scaffolding tower listening to Shanners effing and geoffing was amusing. Agree with you anon , itís not like their original ground. This used to be their training ground long time ago.,but it made sense for them to move, as they donít have to share the takings with the cricket and tennis club like they used to , at the original ground . So I suppose for them it made sense to move. Think they make money on the 3G pitches next door to other sports clubs who hire them. Anyway letís hope we back to winning ways , and enjoy rest of season.

Albion's match report


As Dave g/w indicates (above) it was the penalties "what did us in".

3 tries to Albion against 2 to Blackheath. Excellent kicking but Albion gave him the opportunity.

The Rugby Paper headline was something like "Blackheath Put The Boot In" - says it all in a few words.

It seemed like they had watched the Sale game and decided to take anything as soon as they could. V frustrating when the 4T BP was in our grasp; 2-3 in league points would have been a real coup and put us level with this Sat's visitors.


Come cheer up, my lads - 'tis to glory we steer!

Not a bad result against one of the better teams in the league.
