Cornish Pirates 34 Rotherham Titans 5

Sunday February 26th 2017
Greene King IPA Championship Rd 17
Mennaye Field Penzance

After last weekend's rampage in Yorkshire, the loss of three key forwards – Cheesman, Beukeboom & skipper Morgan in the lead up to the Titans' visit to Cornwall – raised more than just a few frowning eyebrows in the Pirates camp.

The home bench split of 5 to 2 in favour of backs rather than forwards, would normally cause consternation too, as the size of the Cornish squad also drew attention in pre match conversations.

Step up centre Bar Bartlett just before the break – as hooker Channon departed the field for a head examination (it's still there on his shoulders btw!) - to try his hand at this back row mularky. Given his industry and big hits from his release from the traps – he's pretty much got it licked.
