Arnott delighted with his first league try
JACK ARNOTT is not likely to forget his first league try, but unfortunately his dad missed his big moment.
The 19-year-old Plymothian dived on to a kick by fellow city youngster Henry Slade in the 77th minute as Albion beat the West Yorkshire club 32-31.
Arnott was delighted with the win and his match-winning try.
"I'm over the moon with the result and to get the try at the end was the icing on the cake," said the former St Boniface and Ivybridge Community College pupil.

"It was my first Albion try.
"My dad was working and so he will be a bit gutted, but mum was here with my brothers.
"My dad normally comes down, so we will have to underplay it a bit."
On the try, Arnott said: "I had spoken to Sladey (Henry Slade) before we ran the move.
"We knew they (Leeds) would fly up and that there would be space in the back field. Give credit to Sladey, it was an amazing kick, I just finished off what he had put in place.
"I was absolutely over the moon."
He added: "We had come off the back of a tough loss the week before, but we were really positive and all the boys worked hard during the week. It was a great team effort.
"Credit to Leeds, they came out quite strong and they are a physical team, but it was a top effort by the boys."
Arnott admitted it was nerve-wracking watching Ford kick, knowing it could win Leeds the game.
"There were a few lumps in the throats when that was happening, but that it is pat and parcel of the game. "They were unfortunate with the kick, but we stuck it out and got the win at the end."
Leeds out-scored Albion by five tries to four, but the week before Plymouth had scored more tries than the Pirates but lost with a late kick.
Arnott said: "Rugby is a very hard game. It is those losses you have to take on the chin. I'm sure Leeds will bounce back strong next week and, hopefully, we can step up again and keep pushing."
