The Cornish Pirates v. Doncaster Knights

Before this game, Doncaster were situated one place below The Pirates in the league, so this match was a very important one for The Pirates to win. It wasn’t a good start for The Pirates however, as they received two yellow cards in the 5th and 8th minutes, but in spite of this, The Pirates kept their line intact and it wasn’t until the final minute of the second yellow card that the Knights scored. The Pirates were giving away a number of penalties during this period, but nobody could understand the referee’s decisions for most of them. Both teams strived without any let-up to score but it was The Pirates who took the next score – something which was very important for them  – because this score brought the two teams level, and something which proved to be the turning point in the game. Both defences were very strong in this match, but it was The Pirates who scored next in the corner. Unfortunately because of the strong wind, Arwel Robson was unable to convert. There was no other score this half so at half-time the score-board read 12-7.

In the second half the competition to score next was very fierce between the two teams, but again it was The Pirates who had the honour of scoring. A great deal of pressure was put on to the Doncaster line, and following a series of ‘pick and go’ amongst the forwards, The Pirates scored their third try to the left of the posts. Arwel Robson was successful with the conversion to bring the score to 19-7. The Pirates continued to put pressure on the Knights, but their defence was strong enough to contain everything that was thrown at them. But halfway through the half, The Pirates got their bonus point try with doubtless ‘the try of the season’. The Pirates stole the ball in their own half and in a skilled and very fast move they sped to the Doncaster line and with a final pass to Tom Kessel, scored a marvellous try under the posts. Although Doncaster fought hard, they could not break the Pirates’ line, and with the last kick of the game, Harry Bazelgette added a successful penalty kick for three more points. Final score: The Cornish Pirates 29, Doncaster Knights 7.
