London Scottish v. The Cornish Pirates.

The Recreation Ground has been for the last ten years, a ‘bogey ground’ for The Pirates, and everybody were saying before the match, ‘Will it be the same this time’? Well, we had to wait until the last kick to get the answer. In recent matches, The Pirates have scored in the first 5 or 6 minutes, but this did not occur this week, and it was London Scottish who were the more dangerous team – their team now strengthened by players returning from injury and the loan of a scrum half from Ealing. The Pirates were also giving away a number of penalties and it was no surprise when Scottish scored their first try after 21 minutes. It wasn’t long however, following a line-out, that Callum Sirker scored a try which was converted by Arwel Robson. Slowly The Pirates started to put pressure on London Scottish, and after a number of penalties and a yellow card against them, Tom Channon was driven over the line for an unconverted try. This was at half-time with the score 5-12.

It was hoped that with this yellow card, The Pirates would extend their lead, but this was not the case, but instead The Pirates started to give away penalties again. It wasn’t long therefore before Scottish brought the scores equal with a converted try after 56 minutes. The two teams were now striving for the next score and in the last quarter, after Scottish were unsuccessful with a penalty kick attempt, they scored an unconverted try to take the lead, 17-12. This was a wake-up call for The Pirates and it wasn’t long before Shae Tucker sent Callum Sirker over the line for a converted try. Albanyon Loundres thought that there would be a chance for the win and a bonus point now, as they were awarded a penalty, which they put into the corner for a catch and drive try. However, The Pirates overcame the move and were able to clear their line, and following a penalty given away by Scottish they were able to keep their line intact until the end of the game. Final score, London Scottish 17, The Cornish Pirates, and the bogey ‘put to bed’.
