Albion look to strengthen their front-row options
PLYMOUTH Albion head coach James Shanahan is hoping to bring in a new front-row signing ahead of his side's trip to Stirling on Saturday in the British & Irish Cup.
Shanahan has made no secret of his desire to strengthen his options in the front three due to long-term injuries to dual-registered Exeter Chiefs pair Tom Cowan-Dickie and Lloyd Fairbrother.
"We have been looking for potential front-row players and we are hoping to bring one in this week so that they could be in contention for Saturday," Shanahan told Herald Sport.
"We have still not heard anything about Tom (Cowan-Dickie) and Lloyd (Lloyd Fairbrother).

"Lloyd is taking longer than we hoped and with Tom injured we have been running on two hookers, and Gaz (Gareth Evans) has had an issue with his ankle."
Albion will head to Stirling this weekend in a positive mood after opening their British & Irish Cup Pool 4 campaign with a 28-9 win over Nottingham at Brickfields last Friday.
