The Cornish Pirates can confirm that back rower James McRae is to be dual registered with Exeter Chiefs for a second season. James will be sponsored this season by The Whiskey Boys.

Having James return will provide a massive boost to the squad, not only because he is talented in an area that we need him but because he is diligent around his work and ambitious in his learning, which keeps him driven.
