08/10/2019 - September's Update

As October appears out of the shadows there is a chance to look back on a inconsistent September for Albanians.

At Woolams OAs are strong, organised and on the whole fairly consistent, however on the road they have been clunky, struggling for form and have failed to get their first away win.

The main shining light comes in the form of a larger pool of talent than in recent years, which has appeared in the squad this season and some very refreshing points in September where lighter, youthful Albanian forwards have passed the test against bigger more gnarled veterans of the Nat 2 landscape.

The backs now have a blend of youth, old heads and new faces which for the most part has also worked well. The improvement which is needed to break through the barrier into the higher realms of Nat 2 is to get more wins away from home with the next test coming in the form of an away trip to Taunton Titans and it doesn't get much better than this.

Only time will tell how Albanians fair on the road however an away scalp this weekend could send a big message to the rest of the league.
