The Cornish Pirates' head coach says they are facing their biggest British and Irish Cup game yet.

They welcome Ayr later.

Our guys won the last time the sides met and they are unbeaten in the competition so far.

Ian Davies is expecting a tough test: "We beat them at their place by 50 points. They were quite confident that they would turn us over. The challenge for this weekend is to make sure that this group of players that we're putting out understand that this is a different game, different time, different venue and they've got a different squad but we've still got to have the same application and get the result."

"We need a win to skew a home quarter final. Ayr have certainly improved since we played them in October. They've beaten Ulster and looking at the team they've sent through they've got eight guys playing from Glasgow, so they're going to be a lot stronger than the October team and that's the challenge.


Former Redruth back-rower Tom Duncan has recovered from a knee injury. He is named on a bench that will also seat centre Tom Riley, whose next appearance will be his 50th for the club.

Their full selection is:

Cornish Pirates:   15 Craig Holland, 14 Mike Pope, 13 Alex Dancer, 12 Rheon James, 11 Kyle Moyle, 10 Angus Sinclair, 9 Tom Kessell; 1 Kieran Davies, 2 Aaron Carpenter (capt), 3 Jack Andrew, 4 Neale Patrick, 5 Will Graulich, 6 Jake Parker, 7 Joe Atkinson, 8 James Phillips.

Replacements:   16 Tom Channon, 17 Ben Prescott, 18 Darren Barry, 19 Alex Cheesman, 20 Tom Duncan, 21 Tom Riley, 22 Tom Hendrickson.

Referee:   David Proctor (RFU)      

Assistants:   Nick Williams & Michael Patz
