With both teams looking to be in the playoffs, Sunday’s game against Doncaster Knights at the Mennaye has all the makings of a fantastic game of rugby to come and see.

With a sunny day forecast for Sunday a big crowd is expected and as the penultimate home league game of the season there will be a chance to vote for the supporters’ Player of the Season.

Speaking ahead of the game, Coach Alan Paver said: “Sunday’s game against Doncaster as always will be a closely fought match, which I’m sure will go down to the wire. Clive Griffiths and his men have done fantastically well again to get themselves in a position to continue on to the play offs. “

“That said, we are looking to finish the last 3 games as strongly as possible, so we won’t be making their trip to the Mennaye an easy proposition”

Team News

Full-back Toby May will be making his 50th appearance for the Pirates, in a team that shows a number of changes from the one that lost away to London Irish last Saturday.

Welcomed back into the starting XV are locally raised dual-registered players Max Bodilly and Tom Hendrickson, who both featured for Exeter Chiefs in their narrow Anglo-Welsh Cup defeat against Leicester last Sunday.

Max is selected on the wing and Tom will partner Nicolas De Battista in the centre. Laurence May slots back in at fly-half and included on the bench is lock Josh Caulfield who returns from his time with the Grand Slam winning England Under 20s  squad.
