The Cornish Pirates can confirm that centre Will Butler has joined the club on loan from Worcester Warriors.
A former England under 20s player, the 22-year-old has made 17 appearances for Worcester Warriors.
Delighted to welcome Will on board, Cornish Pirates’ joint head coach Gavin Cattle commented:
Unlucky with our midfield players who have been injured this season, our position was not helped when Shae (Tucker) picked up a slight knock during training this week.
There has been an obvious need to have some back up, so Will’s arrival on loan makes him a welcome addition to the squad and we are naturally grateful to Worcester for acting quickly to help make this happen.
The Pirates were sorry to hear that a former player and official, Ken Thomas, passed away at Ponsandane Care Home on Friday 22nd October, aged 92 years.
With reference to this Saturday’s league encounter against Coventry – kick-off at 2.30pm remember - the following information is hopefully of use for supporters.
