Club History - Pirates Players
Rowe - 'Jethro'|
rugby interest was nurtured at Cape Cornwall School - a then primitive rugby academy
in the far west of Cornwall! - under the guidance of Derek Small who helped produce
other famous Pirate characters such as Colin Dumbo Dymond and Graham
He played in St. Justs first-ever match back in 1967 and then in 1970 had
his first spell with the Pirates.
his 100th match for us in 1974-75 and then became a popular professional entertainer,
well-known to Westward TVs Treasure Hunt viewers.
lived then at Wadebridge but returned to play a further 20 games for the Pirates
in 1979-80 as a respected and stocky prop-forward.
the years, through his profession, he became better-known to a wider audience,
but, much to his credit, he has not forgotten his roots (Denzil wouldnt
let un!) and he has happy memories of St. Just (his school, the rugby club
and the Operatic Society) and of his times with the Pirates.
