Samson is hoping for 'fun' in cup for Argaum
PLYMOUTH ARGAUM, riding high in Devon Two, take on opponents a division higher than them tomorrow in the Devon Junior Cup.
Argaum, second in Devon Two, are at Salcombe, who are notoriously difficult to beat on their own pitch.
The Bickleigh Down-based club's last competitive action was before Christmas at promotion-chasing North Tawton, where Argaum narrowly lost.
Head coach Dave Samson said: "I've been analysing that game and thinking about what happened.

"There's a few places where I think we need bandages and hopefully we can get back to where we were going."
He added: "The league is our main priority, but we're going to have fun in the cup game and see where it takes us."

Meanwhile, players from all over the city paid tribute to former Argaum flanker Dave Parmenter on New Year's Day.
Argaum staged their memorial match for club stalwart Parmenter earlier this week.
Players from across Plymouth were given an open invitation to take part.
Those who did included OPMs' Matt Glastonbury, plus representatives from Plymouth Barbarians, Plymstock Albion Oaks, Ivybridge, St Columba and Torpoint and Plympton Victoria.
Argaum used the game to take a look at players outside their comfort zone, with full-back Jake Turfrey at scrum-half, Gary Michael at hooker and Jamie Venner at fly-half as Tom Richards decided to play for the opposition.
Argaum went four tries down, but Aaron Anderson-Smith celebrated his birthday by pulling back a try for his team.
Anderson-Smith was involved in Argaum's second strike, setting up Tom Underwood, who in turn fed Ryan Phillips, who touched down.
