The Cornish Pirates v. Bedford Blues.

In this match, it was the forwards who sealed the game for the Pirates as their five tries all came from driving mauls and rucks. After 12 minutes The Pirates had a 6-0 lead, through two long penalty kicks by Arwel Robson. The lead did not last long as the Blues scored a converted try in the 13th minute. Then in the 17th minute, following a driving maul, Tom Channon scored The Pirates’ first try. But over the best part remaining of the first half it was a bad spell for The Pirates, as they conceded 17 points. It started in the 21st minute with a try by Bedford, which showed clearly in the video watched later, that the final pass was forward. It was only 5 minutes after this that an unusual 22 drop-out entirely went wrong which gave the Blues a very easy try. Following a successful penalty kick by Bedford, The Pirates scored their second try. 9 minutes before half-time saw a difference of opinion between Danny Cutmore and Jordan Onojaife, which gave Cutmore 10 minutes rest in the sin bin but an early bath for Onojaife as he was shown a red card for punching. Although Bedford scored again before half-time, this was the turning point in the game. Half-time score, 18-24.

The second half saw a better performance by The Pirates – their defence now much better and their forwards pushing back the Blues’ pack, brought about of course by Bedford being a man short. These scrum penalties gave The Pirates the chance to kick to the corner and three more catch and drive moves gave The Pirates the tries they wanted. Although The Pirates took the lead 25-24 in the 47th minute through a converted try by Joe Elderkin, they were unable to score anymore until the last ten minutes, when two tries were scored – the first by Rory Parata, and the second by Syd Blackmore. Bedford never gave up and more than once nearly scored through rucks on the Pirates’ line, but The Pirates stole the ball and ran the ball clear of their half to safety. The Blues battled until the final whistle but were unable to cross the line. Final score, The Cornish Pirates 39, Bedford 24.
