Following their recent announcement confirming that centre Will Butler had joined the club on a dual-registration agreement with Worcester Warriors, the Cornish Pirates can also now confirm that fly-half Arwel Robson has arrived on loan from Newport Gwent Dragons.
Caerphilly-born, the 24-year-old is a former Wales under 18s and under 20s player who has made 24 appearances for the Dragons and scored 92 points, which would likely have been considerably more but for suffering a season-ending hamstring injury early in 2019/20.
Welcoming a now fit again Arwel to the Mennaye Field, Cornish Pirates’ joint head coach Gavin Cattle said:
From our perspective it is useful to have a ‘10’ like Arwel on loan who has been exposed to Pro-14 level, kicks the line well and recognises space.
Helping us in our current situation, the support of Dean Ryan and Rob Burgess at the Dragons to facilitate the loan is greatly appreciated, as it enables us to have a good player on our hands, probably for the rest of the season.
We are delighted to confirm Man Down as an Official Charity Partner, after their recent visit to The Mennaye.
When the Cornish Pirates recently played Doncaster Knights at the Mennaye Field, a match day collection in aid of Cornwall Hospice Care raised the very worthy sum of £560-56.
Having departed the Cornish Pirates at the end of last season to join Jersey Reds, good news confirms that wing Robin Wedlake has signed a contract to rejoin the club for the remainder of this present season.
