With 6 back to back wins behind then after the stunning victory at Headingley last weekend the Pirates know there will be no room for complacency against the Titans on Sunday.

The Pirates - fifth in the league - narrowly lost 26-24 to tenth placed Titans in October, a game that proved to be a great ‘learning moment’ in the season and
know they will have to be on their mettle this time round.

“Winning well against Yorkshire Carnegie last weekend was pleasing but there are always little things to work on as we look to push the bar to improve still further.” said co-coach, Gavin Cattle.

“The Titans have a hard working team, with a good set piece, and it’ll be important for us to be on our mettle, get a foothold in the game and then apply ourselves. It’s also about bringing physicality, playing with energy, and maintaining our discipline under pressure.”

Making Sport Everyone's Game

We are proud to be supporting the Rainbow Laces campaign at this game, making sport everyone's game with no exceptions. www.stonewall.org.uk

rainbow coloured laces in their bootsThe teams will have rainbow coloured laces in their boots, whilst both captains will wear rainbow armbands, sending out a clear message that Sport Is Everyone's Game!!

The Rainbow Laces campaign complements the work that sporting establishments across the nation are doing to promote inclusion and diversity.

Currently, many LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) people wish to participate in sport as players or supporters but may feel unwelcome or unsafe.

Working with Rainbow Laces demonstrates to all, that the Cornish Pirates encourage people to stand up and say they will not accept animosity or abuse of any kind and will challenge attitudes and stereotypes about the LGBT community.
