Championship Final for Cornish Pirates

The Cornish Pirates say they are heading into the Championship final all guns blazing.

They host London Welsh at home for the first leg of the two-parter later.

The Exiles have lost on their last three visits to Mennaye Field and have not beaten the Pirates in their last three meetings.

Even if they win, our lads can not get promoted because their stadium does not meet Premiership criteria.

Number eight Ben Maidment insists the squad are not being distracted by what is happening behind the scenes:

"Not many teams like coming down to the Mennaye. Obviously, it's quite an intimidating atmosphere. We get great home support, and I think with the Falmouth Marine Band and the Cadgwith singers down there it should be packed out, so it really is a big boost for us.

"We're on week forty-seven of our season, so ver that period of time, all the boys, we get quite tight with each other and we have a good team ethos. We now want to finish on a high. We've put all the hard work in and it's worth nothing if we end up finishing second, and that's our motivation, to finish the season off well."

The Cornish Pirates squad for the match is: Cook, Pointer, Hill, Suniula, D.Doherty, Thomas, Cattle (capt), Rimmer, Ward, Paver, McGlone, Nimmo, Ewers, Burgess, Marriott.

Replacements: Storer, Elloway, Brits, Smith, Maidment, Kessell, Evans.
