Kieran Hallett has made six changes from the side that blew away Blaydon 45-0 at Brickfields last Saturday for his team to face Macclesfield this weekend.

The most notable change, is that Albion go into this game with a totally different front row in which William Norton, Tom Cowan-Dickie and Billy Keast replace Sam Nixon, Jamie Salter and Dan Pullinger.

Other changes for Albion include the selection of Dan Collier, Rupert Cooper and Harry Strong, who come in for Nile Dacres, Herbie Stupple and Kieran Hallett. Harvey Skinner moves from inside centre to fly-half.

If Albion win away at Macclesfield, then it will mean Kieran’s side have won ten in a row. Despite this, the best position Kieran’s men can finish in is second, behind runaway leaders Hartpury. Albion have got four more games left of the season.

After Macclesfield, they play Ampthill at home and then Blackheath and Cambridge away to bring the season to a close.


First team: 15 Daniel Powell, 14 Matthew Crosscombe, 13 Dean Squire, 12 Harry Strong, 11 Robin Wedlake, 10 Harvey Skinner, 9 Matthew Shepherd, 1 William Norton, 2 Thomas Cowan-Dickie, 3 William Keast, 4 Daniel Collier, 5 Samuel Holmes, 6 Rupert Cooper, 7 Sam Daly, 8 Daniel Williams.

Replacements: 17 Samuel Nixon, 18 Rupert Freestone, 19 George Mills, 20 Kieran Hallett, 21 Cameron Setter.
