There were three lucky match day mascots when the Cornish Pirates recently played Bedford Blues at the Mennaye Field.
Ahead of kick-off young Isabelle, along with Trewirgie School pupils Jowan and Zak, accompanied players Matt Evans, Robin Wedlake and Brett Beukeboom onto the field, whilst Jowan and Zak also participated in a half-time exhibition game of tag rugby.
I was really excited to play rugby for my school in front of a huge crowd. It was an amazing experience and amazing to see the Pirates play. One day I hope to play for them.
It was also exciting to be a mascot, especially to run out with Robin who is a former Trewirgie pupil!
Teacher David Williams added:
All our children had a wonderful time, which in no small part was due to the friendly and organised way that Sam Teasdale co-ordinated our visit.
Lots of parents came to watch their children play and for some it was their first visit to a major sporting event. They all commented about what a great day it was, the fabulous atmosphere, the standard of rugby played by the Pirates and how much their children had enjoyed themselves!
