League / Cup
With the pressure of the league behind them, the Cornish Pirates will travel on Saturday to play the first leg of their Round 1 draw in the competition away against Doncaster Knights (ko 2.30pm).
The side selected, to be skippered by back rower Matt Bolwell, is one littered with young talent, all keen to give a good account of themselves. For one, replacement Bear Williams, if he makes an appearance then the occasion mark his first outing for the Cornish Pirates in a Championship fixture.
Ahead of Saturday’s Cup match encounter, Cornish Pirates’ joint head coach Alan Paver has commented:
“Having selected an exciting young team with fresh faces to travel up to Doncaster, we are just looking forward to getting stuck in.
“The Cup competition is something we’d obviously like to do well in and at the same provide opportunity and see development from guys who have trained hard and been very patient.
“It is felt that the team selected is a strong side, and one capable of winning games to hopefully see us through to the next round.”
