Cornwall School Games comes to the Pirates on Friday when up to 200 players from schools across Cornwall participate in a 7s tournament on the Mennaye Nursery Field.
The tournament starts at 11am when the young players will be welcomed by Craig Handford from the Cornwall Sports Partnership, before players from the Cornish Pirates perform the opening ceremony.
2016 marks the sixth year of the Cornwall School Games, which will see around 20,000 Cornish Primary and Secondary children from 200 Cornish schools compete in 36 different sports.
The Pirates are pleased to play their small part by hosting this Friday’s Sevens event, for what will clearly be a special day for all involved.
Cornwall has produced some outstanding rugbystars in the current era, not least England’s Jack Nowell and Luke Cowan-Dickie who both attended Mounts Bay School and played for the Pirates Youth Section, so hopefully more stars of the future will participate Friday.
