Ealing v. The Cornish Pirates
Everybody knew that this match against Ealing would be a difficult one, but there was the hope that the Pirates could succeed and progress to the final, even though this meant that there would yet again be another match away from home in this expensive cup for the clubs, which was without any financial help at all from the ERFU. In dry and hot weather, Ealing were the first to score when they crossed the line following a line-out. Although the conversion attempt was unsuccessful, already Ealing had a 5-0 lead. However, in the 20th minute an Ealing player was shown a yellow card and immediately the Pirates scored a try by Rus Tuima, which was converted by Arwel Robson. Then unfortunately Cory Teague was shown yellow, and as with the Pirates earlier, Ealing scored a try, this time converted to give them the lead, 12-7. There wasn’t much between the two teams, but two tries in succession, in the 36th minute and with the last play of the half, gave Ealing a big lead now of 26-7, with a hard task for the Pirates in the second half.
The second half did not start well for the Pirates, when Ealing extended their lead with a penalty kick. However, the Pirates’ spirits did not drop, and two tries in the space of two minutes – the first by Syd Blackmore in the 49th minute and John Stevens two minutes later in the 51st minute – saw the gap between the two teams shrink to 8 points – 29-21. Now there was a chance for the Pirates, but with Tuima failing to gather the ball safely, Ealing seized the chance and scored in the corner. Now with the score 36-21 there was a lot of work to do again for the Pirates, but although they pushed hard, they could not score until the 74th minute, when Lewis Pearson went over for an unconverted try. The Pirates gave away a number of penalties in the last minutes, but Ealing could not score again, and the game finished, Ealing 36, The Cornish Pirates 26. A disappointing result for the Pirates, but in saying this, it has been over all an excellent season for them. Now, for the coming season!
