We welcome Richmond to the Mennaye on Sunday for a first ever meeting between the two teams and another exciting contest in store.

After the toughest of introductions to the Greene King IPA Championship, Richmond recently notched up their first points of the season. Playing neighbours London Scottish in their last ‘away’ game, a full-blooded and spirited performance earned them a deserved 17-16 victory at the Richmond Athletic Ground, whilst last weekend at the same venue they picked up an impressive four-try bonus point when losing 39-31 to Yorkshire Carnegie.

Respectful of the challenge that an improving Richmond side will pose, the Pirates will look to follow up their excellent win at Doncaster with another encouraging result.
