The Cornish Pirates v. Richmond.

The weather in the morning wasn’t very good for the first league match of the season, with mist and drizzle, but by kick-off the sky had cleared and the sun broke through to give a perfect afternoon for rugby. The Pirates opened the scoring through a try by Matt Bolwell, which was converted by Arwel Robson. But Richmond came back immediately, scoring an unconverted try in the 9th minute. 10 minutes later, Richmond took the lead through a penalty kicked by Kane – 7-8. This was a wake-up call for the Pirates, who in the 21st minute, scored a try through Tom Duncan, converted by Robson. In the 32 minute, Richmond narrowed the gap through a successful penalty kick by Kane – 14-11. Once again the Pirates could see that they had to work for points and following some fast play, A.J.Cant crossed the line in the score-board corner to increase the lead to 21-11. A minute before half-time, with the Pirates attacking the Richmond line, their Nr. 12 was shown a yellow card, but the Pirates were not able take advantage of this and so the score remained unchanged at half-time.

Early in the second half, The Pirates achieved their fourth and bonus point try through Callum Sirker, once again with a successful conversion from the touch-line by Robson. 5 minutes later, Sirker crossed the line again for a converted try to bring the score to 31-11. The Pirates were now beginning to attack the Richmond defence more strongly, who continued to give away a number of penalties over the remainder of the half. For each of these penalties, the Pirates chose to kick to the corner for a catch and drive move, but unfortunately it was a ‘bad day at the office’, for the Pirates’ line-outs, as nearly every throw-in was adjudged ‘not straight’ by referee Mr. Joe James. But Richmond did not give up and they scored a converted try in the 76th minute. Almost at full-time there was a clash of heads for the Pirates when Alex Schwarz and Cory Teague collided. There was no further score and so at the final whistle it was – The Cornish Pirates 33, Richmond 18.
