 After victory over Plymouth in the Boxing Day derby, the Cornish Pirates lose one of their top coaches.

 

Assistant Harvey Biljon is joining Jersey.

 

Harvey, 36, joined the Cornish Pirates as Backs Coach in the summer of 2009 and brought with him an impressive CV. He had played for Natal Sharks at under 20 and under U21 levels, and then for London Wasps from 2000 to 2006. He also held the post of Director of Rugby at Blackheath from 2005 to 2009, for whom he also played up to 2008.

 

After successfully coaching England Counties from 2007 to 2009 Harvey moved to the Pirates, who at the end of the 2009-10 season beat Munster in the first ever final the British & Irish Cup competition. In the two seasons that followed the team made it to two twin-legged Championship finals on the trot - against Worcester Warriors in 2011 and London Welsh in 2012.

 

Harvey has thanked the team at the Mennaye for all their encouragement and support and said: "My time with the Cornish Pirates has been enjoyable and it has helped me to develop. I would like to thank Dicky Evans, former High Performance Manager Chris Stirling, my work colleagues, and all volunteers and supporters in general for their help and encouragement, which has been so greatly appreciated.

 

"There's obviously a little bit of the unknown when taking on the challenge of a Head Coach role, and the opportunity offered by Jersey is one that I am now looking forward to."
