Weekend Rugby Round-up

The Cornish Pirates make the trip to Jersey for the second leg of their British and Irish cup tie.
Our boys are confident, after beating them last weekend at the Mennaye.
Strength and conditioning coach Simon Raynes says there has still been work to do: "One of the things we're disappointed with is that it took us until the 70th minute to actually do the things we wanted to do with the game. We've actually had a really, really good training week and we feel like, if we can get the boys to come out of the blocks and give an 80 minute performance, then we're confident of getting a good result.
"We're going over there to play our game. We're doing well in the cup, we're in a good position in the table and we believe, if we can go out and play our game, we can get the result."
Elsewhere, Redruth go to Clifton still struggling to find consistent form.
The Reds are yet to string a run of wins together.
Away games seem to be the sticking point.
Head coach Ashley Morcom says they are going to Clifton this week with the intention of turning them over: "It's all about having the right frame mind going away from home, Obviously we've proved that our home record is impressive with the way that we've come back over the last few weeks, but it's important that we go with the right mind-set to Clifton and that we go with the attitude that we are going to go there and we are going to do a bit of a number on them.
"We played Clifton at the end of last year and they gave us a bit of a hiding really. They play a very wide, expansive game of rugby, which is fun to watch but from our point of view we have got to try and stub that out sooner rather than later. We can't afford to let them get a head start."
Launceston welcome Dings Crusaders to Polson Bridge, looking to get three wins in a row. The visitors will be gunning for a win though. They are second from bottom in National Two after six straight defeats.
