Cornish Pirates V Moseley
8:05am 28th September 2014
The Cornish Pirates welcome Moseley in their fourth game of the season.
They have lost all of their games of the season so far but are hoping to turn things around.
Director of Rugby Ian Davies says that they have been playing well but there have been tough matches.
He said blips are to be expected and they are working to turn the scores around.
They are still feeling confident though, he said: "As a coach, as long as every week your performance is improving you know you are on the right road, there are going to be blips along the way because you can't continuously go on that upward spiral, so we've got to make sure that if there is a blip we rectify it and it doesn't last for long.
"We knew when the fixtures came out we started with a particular tough run of fixtures, but then in the championship all games are tough, every team is well prepared well coached, and obviously apart from a couple of full time professionals, even if they are not full time they still put in the same hours as we do."
Ready to make his first Greene King IPA Championship appearance of the season, player/coach Alan Paver is looking forward to the game, he said: "If we show further improvement from our games to date and can play with lots of energy then we should be in a position to win. We do understand the challenge that a Moseley side littered with experience will pose, but we have experienced performers too, plus there's the support of our terrific home crowd."
The team includes: 15 Matt Evans, 14 Kieran Goss, 13 Tom Riley, 12 Tom Hendrickson, 11 Kyle Moyle, 10 Kieran Hallett, 9 Tom Kessell; 1 Jack Andrew, 2 Aaron Carpenter, 3 Alan Paver, 4 Will Carrick Smith, 5 Darren Barry, 6 Chris Morgan (capt), 7 Joe Atkinson, 8 Laurie McGlone.
Replacements: 16 Jack Innard, 17 Jamal Ford-Robinson, 18 Tyler Gendall, 19 Will Graulich, 20 Matt Bolwell, 21 Mike Pope, 22 Alex Dancer.8:05am 28th September 2014
