By Cider Drinker
March 8 2019

This weekend Albion play host to Darlington Mowden Park. Darlington 7th in the table,  only one place above Albion, 5 points difference.

Darlington with 3 wins, 1 draw and a Loss, compared to Albions 3 wins and 2 losses, all to play for on Saturday - every point will count. Back in November away Albion Lost  by 3 points - 22 to 19, so rematch should be exciting   

 

Darlington are Flying down for the match, money to spend ?(one of their sponsors are Porsche). 

Looking at the team sheets (according to teams websites) Darlington– Gary Law listed as Head coach and fly half, and on the Bench  – Pera Gibbs is listed as the Strength and Conditioning Coach on their website and also fly half, a talented team – full team list below

There’s a happy hour in the supporters Bar 12 until 2, food and the England game showing after the match in the Bidfood.

 

Player to watch – for tries Callum Mackenzie, but if opportunity arrives for a drop kick/penalty kick or conversions Warren Seals has a very good boot

Weather: Breezy, turning cloudier in the afternoon with rain arriving later. Maximum temperature 12 °C.

Forecast: Albion  win by 7 points, but may not get the bonus point

Thanks for the regular previews, CD/Igwok.

As I see it, if Albion simply consolidate on last week's excellent showing they will be in with a good chance.

Again, discipline will be key. The 11 point gap v OEs could have been halved by avoiding a pair of 50/50 penalties, thus getting a second BP and vitally keeping us closer at the death. We also did well to keep the ball from their danger man on the wing (- mostly!).

The variable starting line-ups don't seem to have been to much of a problem. Very satisfying to see solid "squad" performances of late. And good to see Sam Daly starting again. (His right arm didn't appear to have suffered too much from his recent lay-off at College Meadow.)

When do/did DMP fly? An expensive hotel last night will mean they're fresh as daisies, but a morning sortie will be less satisfactory for them in spite of the short travel time. Could this be the deciding factor...?

Ex-Albion (office boy mainly - through injury) Dave Fisher on the visitors' bench.

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