Leeds accept Albion replay
LEEDS Carnegie have officially accepted they must replay a Championship match against Plymouth Albion after an RFU inquiry.
Albion got their 34-16 defeat at Leeds on January 6 quashed in a wrangle over the condition of the northern club's Headingley Carnegie Stadium pitch.
The match went to uncontested scrums after just 13 minutes after the surface badly cut up.
Now Albion will try again at a new venue, West Park Leeds, on Sunday, February 3.

Leeds Carnegie have also rearranged their next two Championship games against Newcastle Falcons and Cornish Pirates to be played at Otley RUFC.
Leeds' executive chairman, Sir Ian McGeechan said: "Having sought expert legal advice we have decided against appealing the decision and reluctantly accept the findings.
"As a club we have invested in our infrastructure to produce a world class venue, but unfortunately the pitch has been deemed unacceptable for scrummaging."
