Unique Double Header: Saturday’s match for the Cornish Pirates versus Ampthill (ko 2pm) will form part of a unique double-header. The team is unbeaten at home in the Championship league this season, whilst the Pirates Amateurs, who in their final home game in the Tribute Cornwall & Devon league will face North Tawton (ko 3.45pm), are also similarly unbeaten. For each, should they emerge victorious, it would be a congratulatory first such achievement which would indeed be unique.
Both teams deserve to be well supported on the day – and they surely will be. Supporter importance cannot be underestimated and growing again this season it really does help when everyone gets behind the team – legally, as a sixteenth man!
