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.

Rob has since commented:
