LAST Saturday’s emphatic away win at Bedford confounded the pundits, enthused the Pirates faithful (& not so faithful) and importantly boosted the squad’s confidence.

Strong in the set piece and solid in defence, those at Goldington Road witnessed a powerful Cornish Pirates performance that set the seal on new coaching duo; Gav & Paves’ growing reputation as a coaching force to be reckoned with.

Whilst the squad is a little smaller this season, there is a thread of continuity spiced by a group of young, talented & developing players spread across most positions.

As Coach Gavin Cattle told us:

“From a coaching standpoint, throughout pre-season this group of players have demonstrated that they have bucket loads of enthusiasm, a willingness to work hard and a thirst to learn. 

For us there are always going to be components where we need to improve, but if we show the same level of focus, endeavour and passion then a result is always achievable.”

So - on to Sunday - reading the boards and listening to comments on-line it sounds as if the slumber of the missing fans was interrupted last week, and led by Blazey they’ve woken & remembered that Pirates Match Day is what weekends are for.
