Croatian National Felip Perica has signed for Albion.

[www.plymouthalbion.com]

Filip has previously played at Taunton and Newton Abbot

The Croatian rugby team is currently ranked 46th in the world by World Rugby.
Filip has apparently played for the Croatian rugby team, their seven and their beach rugby team this year. The Newton Abbot website shows him as an inside centre.

I presume he will feature in the game against Taunton

Thought the club said a handful of exciting signings. Hope Filip does well, good luck and welcome to the club

The club seems to be very slow in announcing new signings. Is this always the way?

Certainly they have taken their time announcing new players this pre-season.

The team for the Taunton match has been announced - see Offy twitter page.

A few names that I didn't recognise are on the bench

Olly Mulbury - is this Olly Mulberry who used to play for Saltash?
Troy Gobey - perhaps the Navy and Argaum player

These may be on trial rather than new signings

It is also interesting that Felip Perica and Alex Ducker are not shown on the team list.

As it is a friendly, perhaps there will be a few surprises on the day.

Young squad for tomorrow, not a bad side. Squire on the wing , played most positions last season did well. Must be injury to Ducker ??

Squad up for the Exe Uni game on Sunday:

@AlbionRFC Twitter

Some of the missing names from this thread - plus a few new ones as well(?).

Seem to remember from last year that this was actually a bit of a game. Pretty sure we won, but couldn't tell you the score. Didn't do us any favours on the injury front, I seem to recall. Plenty of Chiefs Academy boys up for putting one over their mates in Albi shirts. Approach with caution, lads...

NB: Check PARFC website for prices on the gate.



Come cheer up, my lads - 'tis to glory we steer!

Yes, Scott Makepeace being one of the new names.

Royal Navy rugby union captain, he has also played for Nuneaton.

Albion have just announced that Scott Makepeace has joined the squad

[www.plymouthalbion.com]

It appears that he will continue to play for the Navy midweek.
Glutton for punishment ..... or a case of playing is better than training.

Welcome Scott!

Also announced as a "new" signing is Devon Jewsbury.

[www.plymouthalbion.com]

As I read this report Devon has been sidelined for a lengthy period since damaging his ACL whilst playing for Albion well over a year ago. It seems he has still been spending time at Albion whilst he has been recovering. It doesn't say that he is a DR player, but he did have that history with the Exeter Academy.

Welcome back Devon

The club have released a named picture of the 2019/20 squad

[www.plymouthalbion.com]

Names that were new to me were Pierre Thompson, Sam Morley and Max Norey. I think players of those names were in the Exeter squad or academy. DR's ??

Absences (from the picture) include Dan Powell, Sam Tooke, Jamie Salter and Koree Britton - but all appear on the linked "individual players" page. So does John Snow, but in an old top.

Anyone know what has happened to Felip Perica? His signing was announced on the 14th August, but as far as I know he hasn't appeared in any matchday squad.
