Young rugby players from Penryn under 8s thoroughly enjoyed their visit to the Mennaye Field on Sunday.
Indeed, they not only participated in a tag-rugby exhibition during the interval of the Cornish Pirates versus Doncaster Knights match, but they also formed the Guard of Honour and waved St. Piran flags – appropriately on St. Piran’s Day Eve – when the two Championship teams emerged from the tunnel.
It did not end there though, as providing a real bonus for Penryn youngsters Broadie Creedon and Josh Honeychurch, they were the chosen mascots who accompanied Cornish Pirates player Brett Beukeboom and skipper Nicolas De Battista onto the field.
Commenting following their visit, Penryn under 8s coach Tiffany Honeychurch said:
Thanks to everyone at the Cornish Pirates for a fantastic afternoon! We all had a great time, made even better with the terrific win!
