The Cornish Pirates make big changes for their first home clash of the year.

They host Nottingham at the Mennaye later, after last weekend's defeat to Bedford.

The Championship sides drew when they met earlier this season.

Lock Ian Nimmo returns to action against his former club, and Rhodri McAtee replaces Matt Evans on the wing.

Redruth's Aaron Penberthy could make his Championship debut for the Pirates.

Backs Coach Harvey Biljon said he was expecting a tough match: "Nottingham are a very, very strong outfit, you know, they've got international players scattered throughout their team so it's definitely going to be a challenge. And it's one of those fixtures where league position means nothing because it's going to be two quality teams playing against each other this weekend."

Harvey adds it is a big day for Aaron Penberthy: "The most exciting team news, I think, is that Aaron Penberthy makes his way onto the beach from Redruth. Hopefully all being well, if the game goes well, he'll get his opportunity. It'll be his first league debut if he gets on."

Here is a list of the full squad for Sunday's match: R. Cook, R. McAtee, G. Pointer, D. Locke, D. Doherty, C. Thomas, G. Cattle (capt), B. Maidment, C. Morgan, B. Cowan, M. Myerscough, I. Nimmo, A. Paver, D. WArd, P. Andrew.

Replacements: C. Rimmer, T. Cowan-Dickie, M. Smith, K. Marriott, J. Doherty, A. Penberthy, S. Hill.
