Exeter Chiefs' dual-registered winger Jack Arnott is looking forward to taking his place in a new-look back three at Plymouth Albion.

The 21-year-old returns to Albion having missed the opening games, featuring for his parent club.

"It's really exciting to be playing in a back three that's got pace and is dangerous," Arnott told BBC Sport.

"Training's been good but sometimes it can be exciting playing with unfamiliar guys - we're not worried about it."

The Plymouth-born back when he came on as a replacement against London Welsh on the opening day of the season.

The return to fitness of England winger Jack Nowell has meant Exeter have allowed Arnott to join up with the Plymouth squad, where he is in his fourth season as a dual-registered player.

"It was a dream start against Welsh and a massive confidence boost," he continued.

"It was great to get the ball rolling in the Premiership after a couple of injuries in the last couple of years."

Arnott's return has come at the best possible time for Albion as they have already lost a number of backs to injury this season.

Player-coach James Shanahan limped off in the first game and wingers Peter Homan and Mark Kohler are both still unavailable, leading to the who lined up at full-back last week.

"We've had some disappointing results, but Bedford are struggling too and we need to show some pride and make Brickfields a tough place to visit," added Arnott.

"This week there's a lot on the line and I'm sure the boys are going to come out firing."
