All the Latest News & Fixtures...
Cornish Pirates’ supporters will be looking forward to this Saturday’s Round 5 game in the Championship Cup (ko 2.30pm), because a victory would assure a semi-final place for the team. Having said that, we expect nothing less than a tough contest.
The sides have already met twice this season, with both games played at Caldy’s Paton Field ground. The Pirates won 26-7 in the Cup last November, before in December snow they lost 15-14 in the league.
General information to note:
Tickets – Tickets for the game – it a first for the two teams at the Mennaye Field – will be available at the gates on the day from 12.30pm, whilst in the meantime they can also be purchased on-line. For further information please visit: www.cornish-pirates.com/tickets
