For the third match of the season, The Pirates gave starts to Alex Schwarz at 9 and Rus Tuima at No.8. This was also the 100th game for captain John Stevens. The game started at full speed and the Blues were the first to score after 5 minutes with a penalty. The Pirates had a chance to equal the scores within 5 minutes but Arwel Robson’s kick hit the post an went dead. However, and although it took thirty minutes for The Pirates to score, Robson’s fine penalty kick to the corner gave the Pirates a catch and drive chance, from which Will Crane went over the line to score a try. Robson added the two points to make the score7-6. Play continued from end to end with both teams attacking strongly, but it was the Pirates who scored just before half-time, when Rus Tuima went to ground very close to the line but was able to stretch out his arm enough to score close to the posts. Once again Robson converted to bring the score to 14-6 at half-time.

It was hoped that The Pirates would continue in like manner in the second half, but the Blues had different ideas, because within three minutes they scored their second converted try, followed four minutes later with a penalty at the posts, which saw Bedford lead again, 14-16. However, it was the turn of The Pirates to score next when some quick handling amongst the backs finished with Robin Wedlake scoring a brilliant try, which was again converted by Robson. Now with the lead restored again at 21-16, hopes were high for further scores, but unfortunately, from then on everything went downhill for the Pirates. The Blues took hold of the reins and drove the game. They score their next try with 59 minutes on the clock and some minutes later scored try number 3 to bring the score to 21-28. The Pirates now had to have the next score, but through unlucky bounces of the ball and a number of errors under pressure which were seized upon quickly by a Bedford, they scored their bonus point try and to rub salt into the wounds, finished the game with two penalty kicks. Final score, The Cornish Pirates 21, Bedford Blues 41.
