The Cornish Pirates are pleased to announce the signing of fly-half Bruce Houston on a one-year contract.


Antrim-born Bruce, aged 24, is a former Ireland under 18s and under 19s player, who in his senior rugby career has played for Ulster ‘A’, Ulster, and has more recently represented Scottish ‘Super 6’ side Heriot’s, from where he was offered a partnership deal with United Rugby Championship side Edinburgh Rugby.


Speaking with reference to the club’s latest new signing, Cornish Pirates’ joint head coach Gavin Cattle said:


“Fly-half was a position we felt we needed more depth.


“There is a possibility that Iwan Jenkins will be recalled to Exeter Chiefs at some stage, which would leave us with just one recognised fly-half in Tom Pittman.


“Bruce has a strong kicking game, and a natural ability to challenge defences with ball in hand.


“Also ambitious, he is relishing the opportunity to play in the Championship.”
