Cornish Pirates versus Coventry                                               

A game not to be missed!


Well, the 2023/24 season has flown through, and next up for the Cornish Pirates is their penultimate league game of the season, and their last one at home, against Coventry on Saturday (ko 2.30pm).


With two games to play the Pirates are presently third in the league table with 66 points, whilst second-placed Coventry, who will be playing their final match this weekend, are on 73 points. Ealing Trailfinders top the table, and with two games to go are on 77 points.

Back to this Saturday, ‘Cov’ will arrive at the Mennaye Field in determined mode, fully keen to avenge the 21-19 win that the Pirates inflicted upon them at the Butts Park Arena in January, whilst for Pirates’ full-back Kyle Moyle it will proudly mark his 150th appearance for the club.

Ahead of Saturday’s show down, Cornish Pirates’ coach Louie Tonkin has said:


“Coventry are technically still in the fight for the league, so will arrive at the Mennaye Field naturally extra keen to win. They form a dangerous outfit who have a good kicking game and a fine set of backs, who we will strive to nullify. Also, from a general perspective, following last weekend’s performance at Nottingham we will want to be a bit tighter around certain fundamental aspects of our game.”


Louie added:


“The contest clearly has all the ingredients to be a really good fixture between two evenly matched sides, and with the weather also set to be fair a big crowd expected for one of those games not to be missed.”
