Held at Mounts Bay Academy during this February half-term, over 40 children experienced not just a very busy Cornish Pirates ‘Master Class’ day, but also one that for participants was thoroughly enjoyable and rewarding.
The day kicked off with some ‘Activation Games’, before Cornish Pirates’ scrum half Rhodri Davies led an opening session on the site’s all weather 3G pitch, which focused on creating continuity and playing to the space.
Next up the children showed great resilience, braving the present ‘boggy’ conditions with prop Craig Mitchell who looked at tackle techniques and ‘leg drive’ through contact.
After lunch (and a little fun playing kick tennis!), hooker Tom Channon focused on applying pressure in defence and staying connected.
Finally, the day concluded with a kicking breakdown demonstrated and coached by full-back Kyle Moyle.
It was great to see children from various Cornish clubs, ranging from Truro, Newquay, St Ives, Wadebridge, Launceston, Penryn, Helston, Bodmin and Penzance & Newlyn participating.
The next Cornish Pirates ‘Master Class’ day will be held at Newquay Sports Centre on Thursday the 9th of April, so keep an eye out for which players will be involved and the aspects of play they will be covering!
