It is confirmed that Adam Watts, aged 22, has been appointed as Technical Performance Analyst at the Cornish Pirates.
Ahead of the 2020/21 Greene King IPA Championship season, Adam’s appointment is related to a performance analytics partnership signed between the Cornish Pirates and Proview Sports.

Having last season gained experience working as an Assistant Performance Analyst at London Scottish, he is delighted with his latest appointment, saying:
My first reaction on being offered a role at the Cornish Pirates was ‘that’s a trek’, however in all seriousness I thought how good it would be to work at a club which has such amazing support from the local community and such a rich history. I can’t wait to get started.
Also, of course, Penzance isn’t a half bad place to live!
