Having signed a two-year contract with the Cornish Pirates last summer, Kiwi centre Jordan Payne has left the Cornish Pirates.
Because of injury, during his time in Cornwall the Auckland-born 26-year-old, who had experienced playing Super Rugby for the Chiefs, was unfortunately unable to pull on a Pirates shirt.
Speaking with reference to Jordan, joint Head Coach Gavin Cattle has commented:
It was sad that Jordan’s season was blighted by injury. He did well to recover from a back operation but then picked up an injury playing for Redruth.
During his time with the Pirates, Jordan has been a credit to himself, and about the club and with the lads. We all feel his frustration at not being able to pull on the shirt, and especially so because of the quality witnessed when he was able to train.
Jordan will do a bit of travelling, look to get over his injury and then assess his options. A great bloke, we wish him and his partner April all the very best.
The Cornish Pirates can confirm that an exciting pre-season friendly will be played at home against Premiership side Worcester Warriors on Saturday 11th September (ko 5pm).
The Cornish Pirates can confirm that hooker Tom Channon is leaving the club to move to Melbourne in Australia with his partner Abbey.
