The Cornish Pirates v. Nottingham Archers

This was the first match for the Pirates after 6 weeks through Covid and free weeks. In front of a crowd of 1848, the Pirates scored after 2 minutes and increased the lead after the 7th – 14.0. Nottingham however, came back and scored two tries inside the next ten minutes to bring the score to 14-12. Both teams were playing fast and open rugby, but it seemed at times that the Pirates were suffering from the lack of match time. Then after a charge down of a clearance attempt by the Archers, the Pirates regained the ball and scored under the posts. Towards the end of the half, Josh Caulfield was shown a yellow card when he slid in trying to stop himself, but doing so, knocked a Nottingham player to the ground as he was catching a ball in the air. The Pirates almost scored again before half-time but the referee decided that the ball was held up, so the score remained at 21-12 when the whistle sounded.

The Pirates got their bonus point after 7 minutes of the second half when they won a line-out and instead of a catch and drive, they sent the ball along the line and Robin Wedlake, who was running a perfect line, scored. As in the first half, Nottingham came back almost immediately and scored in the corner. From now on however, the Pirates found their form and in a space of 18 minutes, scored 24 points through a penalty following Nottingham’s try – to widen the gap – and three converted tries. During this time Nottingham were reduced to 14 men through a yellow card for tackling a man without the ball. Over the remaining minutes of the half, Nottingham attacked strongly to win a losing bonus point, but the Pirates’ defence line held firm. With his first time as a starter, Nr. 10 Harry Bazelgette scored 17 points, including a penalty and the conversion of all the seven tries. Final score: The Cornish Pirates 52, Nottingham Archers 17.
