The Cornish Pirates begin a busy weekend of rugby.

Our guys face Bath in a pre-season friendly on Friday night.

On Sunday, they welcome Sir Ian McGeechan's Yorkshire Carnegie side in their first league match.
 
Prop Adam Jamieson and Lock Marcus Garratt are making their Championship debuts for the Pirates.

Player-coach Alan Paver said: "Last year they were a very strong side. They've got some terrific players. They play a very good brand of rugby. We're expecting nothing but a high-end performance from them and we really know what the task is at hand."

Skipper Chris Morgan will miss the match at the Mennaye, after he was injured last week against Redruth.

Jake Parker takes his place in the back-row and Vice-Captain Matt Evans will lead the side.

Speaking of the Reds, they travel to Southend Saxons on Saturday after losing both pre-season friendlies.

But new coach Steve Larkins says they got stuck in against the Pirates and Exeter and they are up for it: "Everyone has trained pretty hard and I think we've come through them fairly well really. We've changed a lot during the pre-season as oppose to the game plan, the defence and attack and yeah, preparations are going really well."

The Cornish All Blacks also kick their campaign on Saturday.

Launceston welcome Bishops Stortford to Polson Bridge, after two wins and three defeats in the pre-season friendlies.

Director of rugby Neil Bayliss said: "Pre-season's over now; the business end starts now.

"It's always nice to kick off the campaign at home in front of your home fans. They've obviously been waiting a long time to get league rugby back in Launceston. There's a few new faces around the squad so it's a fresh looking Launceston side."

Redruth kick-off at 2.30pm on Saturday.

Launceston get underway at 3pm on Saturday and the Cornish Pirates' match starts at 3pm on Sunday.
