Old players returned to Roborough, including guests from Devonport Services, OPM, Plymouth Barbarians and Old Techs. The game also saw half a dozen Argaum Colts try out in senior rugby. Final score was 32-22 to the Chair (white team).
Further report to follow from Symmo.
Plymouth Argaum hosted touring side Bristol Saracens who play in the Gloucester Premier league which is 2 levels above Argaum in a repeat fixture from the Argaum tour to Bristol.
The Argaum seniors met on Friday afternoon at the clubhouse for a few “warm ups” before departing for Bristol. Once the team eventually arrived after needing to stop for several “comfort and refreshment” breaks across most of Devon and Somerset the lads dressed up as English Knights to celebrate St George’s day and moved towards downtown Bristol to sample the local culture and taken on board some much needed fluids.
Plymouth Argaum continued the club re-build with a hard fought won over a strengthened Wizards side. The Wizards were after revenge from their last encounter were Argaum scored over 50 points and they fielded a much stronger team.
Plymouth Argaum on the re-build
Plymouth Argaum Wanderers started the club re-build with a convincing win over local rivals, DHSOB Wizards. With two early tries from new scrum half Bret Williams and fly half Darren Wills, Argaum looked promising from the start.
This was the 3rd meeting between these two young colts sides with the spoils of the two previous encounters having been shared. Argaum started slowly and were guilty of allowing the ball to bounce on the hard surface which led directly to two home tries, both of which were converted.
