Players & Staff at The Cornish Pirates...
It was confirmed early in June 2018 that the Cornish Pirates had nailed down the signature of Georgian international lock Nodar Cheishvili, who joined the club on a one-year contract.
Nodar, who had played 11 times for Georgia since first being capped in 2015,
arrived from French club Chambery. He had also featured previously with Georgian team Lelo Saracens, and French sides US Seynoise and USO Nevers.
On Nodar’s arrival in Cornwall, Cornish Pirates’ coach Gavin Cattle said:
Aged 27, Nodar is powerful player whose athleticism suits the brand of rugby we are developing. Also, at 6’ 8” tall he is a very capable line-out operator who will add much needed depth and competition within the squad.
We are really pleased to welcome Nodar to the Cornish Pirates.
As for the player himself, he commented:
Aware that the English Championship is renowned for good, physical forward packs, I can’t wait to get started and prove myself.
