The Cornish Pirates are delighted to confirm that hooker Tom Cowan-Dickie has once again put pen to paper, on a one-year contract.
Due to injuries unluckily sustained, the extension on Tom’s one year plus one contract was not taken up. However, following a recent successful operation he has now pleasingly re-signed.
A product of the Penzance & Newlyn RFC’s youth section, Tom first joined the Cornish Pirates in 2010, where in two seasons he made 21 appearances.
Following that initial spell, the now 30-year-old gained further experience at Redruth and at Plymouth Albion, whilst he also played for England Counties and was proudly a member of Cornwall’s 2016 County Championship winning side.
Returning to the Cornish Pirates in 2017, despite injury setbacks Tom has always impressed as a mobile, powerful, and combative front rower. Also, in the process, he has taken his total games tally to 61, which is a figure he will now be keen to build upon.
Pleased that Tom has signed a new contract, Cornish Pirates’ joint Head Coach Alan Paver said:
Having had a difficult few years injury-wise, we are really pleased to be able to sign Tom back on. Everyone feels confident that he is going to fully recover well from his injury, and we are now just looking forward to him once again being a talented and wholehearted Cornishman who is able to take to the field and enjoy some significant game time this year.
The Cornish Pirates can confirm that hooker Tom Channon is leaving the club to move to Melbourne in Australia with his partner Abbey.
Fixtures for the 2021/22 RFU Championship season have been confirmed. The competition will be played over 22 rounds, beginning on 18 September, with the final round scheduled for the weekend of 19-20 March next year.
A latest new squad member signed by the Cornish Pirates on a one-year contract is young backrower Bear Williams.
