The Cornish Pirates make the trip to giant killers Esher on Saturday. 

The basement boys have recently beat Rotherham and held London Welsh to a draw.

Our lads are going in off the back of a mixed bag of results.

But high performance coach Chris Stirling says it is all fine:

“When you're rotating your squad and having numerous player changes to the team each week you're always going to be a little bit inconsistent. But, the time to be consistent isn't now - it's four or five weeks away"

“We’re definitely not taking them lightly at all and we know we're in for a very big challenge this weekend. We went down 17 - 3 (against Nottingham) and showed a lot of team spirit and character in coming back. We took control of the game and deservedly won it. In fact we should have won it by more than two points"

 

There are a number of changes in the Pirates line-up from the one that ran out against Nottingham last weekend with hooker Tom Cowan-Dickie and fly-half Aaron Penberthy named to make their first Championship starts.

Also, following confirmation that Drew Locke suffered a broken collar bone in the match against the 'Green & Whites' Sam Hill will partner Grant Pointer in the centre.

Flanker Kyle Marriott is listed to captain the side in the absence of rested skipper Gavin Cattle.

 

Cornish Pirates:   R. Cook, M. Evans, G. Pointer, S. Hill, D. Doherty, A. Penberthy, J. Doherty, B. Maidment, C. Walker-Blair, K. Marriott (capt), M. Smith I. Nimmo, R. Brits, T. Cowan-Dickie, P. Andrew.

Replacements:   C. Rimmer, D. Ward, L. Fairbrother, L. McGlone, C. Morgan, T. Kessell, T. Cooper.
