Followed this on twitter.

A close game with many twists and turns - but ultimately a hard won 5 points!! (Sm152) (Sm128)

Loved the comments on twitter. Hope our twitter monkey stands near the cardiac arrest equipment (actually, based on some of the pictures/videos, I think he does!)

Fair play to Rotherham, they came back very strongly in the second half and we lost momentum and the control we had in the first half. What a finish though! A tremendous try at the end where there was no room for error with time running out. That final score demonstrated great skill, control and absolute determination. Very well done the squad!

What a difference a win makes - just look where we are now in the Nat 1 Table!

And look where some of the upcoming oppo is, too... Players and coaches seemed to be visibly lifted by the result post game in the Bidvest. OK, one swallow doesn't make a summer (or whatever for the autumn), but the earlier two double BP losses help to make things look a load more respectable three games in.

Well done to everyone for breaking the duck. Now back to the coal face....



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

Massive improvement , starting to come together which takes time , agree totally with comments above , DEFENCE , still needs tightening up , much much better and the 2 previous defeats with bagging 4 points makes it sweeter .

You will improve as games go on , this was a big step to improving .

VERY WELL DONE .

ALL OF YOU .

It seems defence is treated as optional.
It made for an exciting last few minutes

The match reports are now in.

Albion's is a lengthy summary with a good number of pics

Rotherham's has just 1 pic, and just a hint that poor refs decisions may have cost them the match

Onward and upward!

Great result from the squad Saturday. Thought car park was free 👇
Surprised to be told even Saturday volunteers had to pay and claim it back !!!
Strange ,thought it would be easier to give them a car park card.🤔🤔🤔
