A West Country derby takes centre stage in rugby's Championship on Sunday when Plymouth Albion make the short trip to Bristol.
Albion have shown this season that on their day they can match any team in the league but they do have a tendency to lose games they really should have won.
Plymouth Albion are a classic example of the fine line in sport between success and failure. This season they've led at some stage in the second half, in seven of their matches, but on each occasion they've failed to win. When Albion last played Bristol they were leading with twelve minutes to go but went on to lose thirty eight - thirty one. If Plymouth had managed to record victories in some of those games they'd now be pushing for a top four play-off place, but they're currently occupying a mid table position.
At training Albion's players looked in confident moods and keen to show Bristol on Sunday that their days of not hanging on to a lead are now firmly behind them.
A familiar figure has been absent from Albion's training ground over the last few days. Plymouth's head coach James Shanahan has missed the build up to the Bristol match. He's been working with the England Counties squad ahead of their game tonight against an Ireland Clubs' XV in Darlington. So the players have taken responsibility for the coaching.
Albion have shown they can compete with the best sides in the Championship, a win on Sunday would send out a message to the rest of the league that they're on course to soon become a major force themselves.
