British & Irish Cup Rd 4
Mennaye Field Penzance
Cornish Pirates went oh so close to winning this competitively fought encounterand it was a somewhat relieved London Irish who departed the Mennaye Field with their season’s unbeaten record still intact.
Having previously lost two close matches against ‘Irish’ – at home in the Championship and away in the British & Irish Cup the previous weekend - the Pirates arrived at this game keen to learn from those encounters.
