Richmond v. The Cornish Pirates.

After last week’s win against Coventry, it was hoped that there would be the same result this week-end at Richmond. The Pirates started well when they were awarded a scrum penalty in the first minutes, but they could not turn this into points. The Pirates themselves gave away a number of penalties but fortunately they kept their line intact. Then, in the 15th minute, The Pirates scored their first try through Shae Tucker, which was converted by Harry Bazelgette. Following this in the 23 minute and after a string of good phases, Tom Duncan scored, again converted by Harry Bazelgette, to give a score of 0-14. But it wasn’t long before Richmond came back and score two tries in the space of 4 minutes to bring the score to 14-14. Although Callum Sirker was giving Richmond a lot of problems, it was Richmond who scored next, and following a yellow card for a high tackle by Tom Bolwell, they scored their third try under the posts to bring the score to 21-14, which remained the same until half-time.

The Pirates started the second half in good fashion, and after Richmond illegally stopped a rolling maul. Tom Duncan took advantage of the advantage being played and scored the Pirates’ third try – 21-19. The wind was making things difficult now and with box-kicks going out on the full. At this point a number of Pirates players were replaced. Richmond started to put a lot of pressure on the Pirates, and in the 60th minute they increased their lead with a penalty kick – 24-19.  But now Richmond started to give away penalties and after three in quick succession, Mark Bright was given a warning. Then, following a move over the length of the field, The Pirates scored their 4th try through Matt Bolwell to bring the score to 24-24. Unfortunately Bazelgette was unable to get the conversion, in part because of the wind and perhaps helped by noisy home supporters. The Pirates tried for the winning score, but the game finished level at 24-24. Although The Pirates did not perform well, at least they returned home with three points.
