Jack Andrew - PropCornishman Jake was one of three Loughborough Students to sign for the Pirates in April 2013

Along with Joe Atkinson he had spent a week training with the Pirates earlier in the season, as the pair looked for a route into the professional game and to develop still further

Dave Morris, head coach at Loughborough, described Jake as being one of the most selfless players he'd had the privilege of coaching.

He is a member of the Parker family who have run Callestick Farm near Truro for many generations and are famous for their award winning ice cream!

Jake has made 52 appearances for the Pirates during his first three years at the club, mostly as a back-rower. However, and to his credit, he also played in the second-row when called upon last season.

Jake started his rugby with Truro minis at under 11s and then  played the game at Newquay Tretherras School.

A sixth form scholarship at Millfield School followed, where he was coached by former Bath and England prop John Mallett and John Brimacombe who both had a big influence on his game.

The team at the prestigious Somerset school was also littered with now well-known and talented players, including Mako Vunipola, Rhys Ruddock, Jonathan Joseph and Ollie Lindsay-Hague.

On moving to Loughborough, Jake helped the Students side gain promotion to National 1 in 2012, and then helped them consolidate their place at that  level in the following season.

At Loughborough he studied Sports Science with Management, and then a Masters in International Management.
