The Cornish Pirates say it is time to build up Fortress Mennaye.

It is as rivals London Welsh visit the Penzance ground in the Championship.

The two teams are level on points in the league table and drew 17 - 17 at their last meeting.

Forwards' coach Ian Davies says it is time to ramp up the pressure:

"The rotation system we've used, everything's geared toward the knock out stages of, not only of the B&I cup, but also the play offs. We're slowly but surely getting to the place where we want to be. We've got a couple of injuries but everybody's chomping at the bit now"

"We're trying to make a fortress here at The Mennaye. We've had one slip up against Bedford. We've got some of the big guns coming down. London Welsh this weekend, Bristol in a couple of weeks. We've got to make sure that come play off time teams are fearing coming down to Penzance"

The Pirates team has a few changes from the one that started in the cup against Nottingham last weekend.

Centre Tom Cooper and wing Matt Evans come into the side in place of Sam Hill and David Doherty, who are both unavailable. In the forwards Dave Ward takes over at hooker from young Tom Cowan-Dickie. Two other changes in the pack are both in the back-row, where flankers Kyle Marriott and Phil Burgess replace Dave Ewers and Chris Morgan.

Kick-off on Sunday is at 2pm

 

Cornish Pirates:   R. Cook, R. McAtee, A. Short, T. Cooper, M. Evans, A. Penberthy, G. Cattle (capt), B. Maidment, P. Burgess, K. Marriott, I. Nimmo, L. McGlone, R. Brits, D. Ward, C. Rimmer.

Replacements:   A. Paver, T. Cowan-Dickie, M. Smith, M. Myerscough, T. Kessell, C. Thomas, G. Pointer.
