If 1907-08 had been a season of poor publicity, the seasons following, until rugby was interrupted by the first world war, were catastrophic. Season 1908-09 has but one published result 30th January 1909, South Brent 49 Argaum 0. 1909-10, if numerically no better, the one recorded result is an improvement - not difficult - 6-8 v Plymouth and Mannamead College, J. C Hawks scoring for Argaum in the first half and a further try was added just in time.

Thereafter, until the club's 'resurrection' after the war, no mention is to be discovered in Plymouth's leading newspapers 'The Western Daily Mercury' and 'The Western Morning News'. One wonders whether the club continued to function, but in view of the memories that the club name evoked with its post war revivalists, it seems probable that it did indeed soldier on.
