Pirates Make Changes for Trip ‘Up North’

For Round 2 of the Championship Cup, the Cornish Pirates are on the road again this coming weekend. Travelling ‘Up North’ on Saturday to play Yorkshire Carnegie at West Park Leeds RUFC, the Cornish Pirates Kick-off time is at 12.30pm.

For this encounter, in a side that shows several changes from the team that lost 24-20 at London Scottish, flanker Will Wilson, who has recently arrived dual-registered from Wasps, is lined up to make his debut.

Three former Yorkshire Carnegie players are selected, lock Fa’atiga Lemalu, scrum-half Jean-Baptist Bruzulier and replacement prop Craig Mitchell, the latter two keen and ready to make their first appearances in Cornish Pirates’ colours.

Club captain Brett Beukeboom takes a place on the bench, the side to be skippered by centre Nicolas De Battista.

Speaking ahead of the game, coach Gavin Cattle has said:

We have been smarting from last week when, although not expecting it to be polished, we did expect it to be better.

Having had a good look in the mirror the focus this weekend will very much be on us, and to get out of pre-season mode into performance mode.

In making quite a few changes for this weekend, opportunities are given for selected players to put their hands up. We haven’t had the usual pre-season games so these important Cup matches will help work out our best combinations.
