Pirates Are Ready to Rock & Roll

Pre-season complete, the Cornish Pirates will welcome Doncaster Knights to the Mennaye Field on Sunday for their opening game in this season’s Greene King IPA Championship. The kick-off is at 2.30pm.

Matches between the Pirates and the Knights are often high-scoring and entertaining affairs, so once again this is a game not to be missed.

Lock Brett Beukeboom will proudly skipper a Cornish Pirates side with Brett’s fellow Canadian international Matt Evans named at ’11, which is just the one change in the starting line-up from the selection that recently faced Exeter Chiefs.

Speaking ahead of Sunday, coach Alan Paver has said:

Following a long pre-season, with new faces having bedded in and integrated well, all the guys are now ready to rock and roll. We’ve had a pretty decent run out in the last few weeks so it’s time now to get boots on grass and get the meaningful action going.

Welcoming Donny should see a match between two cracking sides, going head to head in what promises to be good conditions. They have quality players, are extremely well coached and with a settled squad it will make for an interesting and physical encounter.

Cornish Pirates’ COO Robin James has also commented:

Ticket sales are going well for this first league match of the season, so thank-you to all those who have already bought tickets. Your support made a huge difference to help our team beat the Exeter Chiefs in pre-season, including keeping a clean sheet in the second half, and we now need your support again to ensure we get the Championship season off to a flyer. Please bring a friend and help fill the Mennaye once more!

Tickets for Sunday’s game will be available at the gates on the day (open 12.30pm), whilst in the meantime they can also be purchased on-line. For further information please visit www.cornish-pirates.com/tickets
