Albion confirm dual registered players from Exeter Chiefs

Jack Arnott

Plymouth Albion will continue their close links with Devon neighbours Exeter Chiefs by having three of their players dual registered next season.

Winger Jack Arnott, back rower Sam Simmonds and tight head prop Dan Pullinger will combine playing for the Chiefs with turning out for Albion.

For 20 year old Arnott, who is an England under 20 international, it will be his third season at Albion as a dual registered player.

Arnott played 9 Championship and 3 British & Irish Cup matches for Albion last season but he missed much of the campaign with a shoulder injury. Arnott also made 3 LV= Cup appearances for Chiefs last season.

In total Plymouth educated Arnott has played 28 games for Albion scoring 4 tries.

19 year old Simmonds had last season disrupted by a knee injury but played 4 times for the Chiefs in their successful LV=Cup campaign.

To aid his recovery Simmonds finished last season playing for Brixham.

19 year old Pullinger who, like Arnott, was educated in Plymouth played for the Chiefs in the A league last season.

To gain more experience of senior rugby Pullinger played for Exmouth last season where one of his team mates was fellow prop Luke Chapman who recently joined Albion.
