Redruth v. The Cornish Pirates.

This was the first pre-season friendly match for the Pirates, and everybody were keen to see the new faces in action – and they were not disappointed. It was a complete 80-minute match between Redruth and the Pirates, with the Pirates fielding two different teams for each half, also making a number of replacements. Redruth put a strong team on the field and also made a number of replacements during the afternoon. Both teams played with spirit and the Pirates were unable to score during the first twenty minutes, due to a strong Redruth defence. However, finally the Pirates opened their score with a try scored – and converted – by Xavier Alvarez. There were further chances to the Pirates but these failed due to simple mistakes. Redruth played keenly and ceaselessly battled with the Pirates. With half time approaching, the Pirates scored their second try through Rory Parata but unfortunately Alvarez did not succeed with the conversion. An that was the score at half time – Redruth 0, The Pirates 12.

In the second half the Pirates upped the pace and soon they scored following a cross-field kick by Will Cargill – the ball bouncing awkwardly for Redruth allowing Alex o’Meara to score. Redruth continued to defend well but they could not handle the Pirates’ speed and it wasn’t long before Matt Bolwell brought the score to 0-24. Still Redruth didn’t give up but strongly fought for a try, but the Pirates’ defence was solid and Redruth could not break their line. The Pirates maintained pressure and scored two more tries, both by Robin Wedlake. Redruth had a ‘purple patch’ during the last five minutes, but in spite of all their work, they could not score that try. Final score – Redruth 0, The Pirates 36.
