A latest new squad member confirmed by the Cornish Pirates is that of centre Ioan Evans.

Pontypridd-born Ioan, aged 21, has played for Wales under 20s and is a former Cardiff Academy member who made his senior Cardiff Rugby debut in a Heineken Champions Cup double-header played against Toulouse and Harlequins in December 2021. Cornish ‘Pirate’ Alex Everett also played for Cardiff Rugby in the match versus Toulouse.

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

“A young man who has come through the Academy system at Cardiff, Ioan has had good game exposure already and, in the process, has already gained considerable experience.

“He can play either centre position but is predominantly a 13, who is very experienced in that channel defensively. As a bonus, he also has a useful left peg as well.

“There is, however, still further potential for his game to grow to another level, which is exciting, so we will be keen to integrate him accordingly.”
