Plymouth Albion expect Herbie Stupple to be fit for Leeds test
HERBIE STUPPLE is expected to be fit for Plymouth Albion's home Championship match against Leeds at Brickfields on Saturday.
The powerful back-row forward had to leave the field after 53 minutes of Sunday's West Country derby with the Cornish Pirates at Mennaye Field.
However, Stupple, who was having a big game before having to go off, was believed to be only suffering from cramp and should recover in time to face Leeds.
But winger Rhodri McAtee is rated as only '50-50' by Albion coach Nat Saumi to make Saturday's game.

Former Pirates star McAtee injured his knee playing against his former club and had to come off in the 69th minute.
Saumi said he would know more today about the club's injury situation, but said: "I'd say Rhodri McAtee is 50-50.
"I think he twisted his knee in a tackle.
"But Herbie Stupple just had cramp so he should be okay."
