Rugby Union: Plymouth Albion 18 Doncaster Knights 6

Have your say

Doncaster Knights lost their first game in three when they were beaten by next to bottom side Plymouth Albion in miserable conditions at Brickfields.

Plymouth took the lead when full back James Love kicked a penalty from the 22 after Knights were penalised for not binding at a scrum.

Knights levelled shortly afterwards when full back Dave Mcllwaine slotted a penalty after Albion were offside in midfield. Plymouth scored the game’s first try when left wing Tyson Lewis squeezed in at the corner after good work from No 8 Herbie Stupple.

Three minutes later Tyson got his second after being put clear by centre Bevon Armitage and Love added the conversion from the touchline for a 15-3 home lead at the interval.

Shortly after the break Albion had back rower Wayne Sprangle yellow carded for a professional foul and Knights took advantage getting three points back from a Mcllwaine penalty. Love replied with his second penalty of the night to make the match safe and send Knights home empty handed.
