The Cornish Pirates will be meeting up with Premiership side Bristol Bears for a training afternoon at Hayle RFC on Thursday 12 September.
Admission is free to supporters with the training action to take place from 1 – 3pm. The timing will also incorporate 3 x 20 minutes sessions when the teams will be in opposition.
Director of Rugby Pat Lam and his Bristol Bears squad, who will be camping at Trevedra Farm for a couple of days, are looking forward to the visit.
Hayle RFC’s excellent facilities will be open during the training afternoon, with there a bar and hog roast. Also, following the rugby action, supporters will have the opportunity to mingle and talk informally with the players and coaches, and to no doubt get some autographs.
Parking on site will be a reasonable £2, plus there will be a bucket collection in support of Hayle RFC who earlier this summer so very kindly hosted the Cornish Pirates for pre-season training.
