Roborough. Plymouth Argaum won their Boxing Day game against O.P.M.s by a solitary try to nil. Play was hard and robust, but movement generally lacked polish. W. Hitchins heeling well, the virile home forwards controlled the first half, and ten minutes from the interval Douglas, at stand-off. received and crossed over after a 30- yard run. In mid-field the visitors' backs looked dangerous, with Beamish prominent at centre, but their attacks petered out against an alert defence. Argaum came near to increasing their lead when Douglas went just wide with a drop kick. Ball and Mutton, the respective full-backs, were in excellent form, and Blackburn stood out in the winners' pack.
