Making a return visit to the Mennaye Field last Sunday was former star ‘Pirate’ Rob Cook.
Rob, who played for Gloucester in the Premiership after leaving the Pirates back in 2012, is now a teacher and assistant director of sport at King Edward VI Grammar School, Stratford-Upon-Avon.
Although welcoming the opportunity to meet up with former colleagues, the main purpose of Rob’s visit was to arrange for students to not only watch the Cornish Pirates in action against Ulster A, but to also participate in a half-time exhibition of rugby.
Rob has since commented:
All of the boys and my colleagues thoroughly enjoyed their visit to the Mennaye, as I knew they would! It was great to be back and meet so many familiar faces, with thanks also to the club’s Community officer, Sam Teasdale, for linking arrangements.
