The Cornish Pirates look to put in a determined performance as Nottingham visit The Mennaye.

The Green and Whites are on a roll, while our boys nurse that heavy defeat to Bedford.

Backs coach Harvey Biljon says it is going to be a dogged match in more ways than one:

“The pitch is still going to be pretty wet. We’re still going to endeavour to play but it’s obviously going to take its toll on the players and I think the use of the bench is going to be very important and we’re going to have to make sure we can get fresh legs on during the game.

“Let’s not look at the result against Nottingham. Let’s look inwards at ourselves and the players and go out there and just put on a performance with the endeavour and the right attitude in front of our home support at The Mennaye.”

The Pirates' selection sees a return for fit again full-back Wes Davies, whilst late changes out wide means a return also for Tom Bedford on the wing. Bedford and fellow winger Ben Mercer make the starting XV after the late withdrawals of Grant Pointer and Matt Evans. New boy, flanker James Tyas, who signed for the Pirates this week on dual-registration with Bath Rugby, is named at blind-side flanker.

Cornish Pirates:

W. Davies, B.Mercer, T. Riley, J. Fatialofa, T. Bedford, K. Hallett, G. Cattle (capt), L. McGlone, P. Burgess, J. Tyas, G. Johnson, D. Lyons, A. Paver, R. Elloway, P. Andrew.

Replacements: P. Joyce, J. Yeandle, D. Barry, J. Buckle, T. Kessell, S. Hill, JJ Kilmartin Referee: Ross Campbell (RFU)

Assistants: Jonathan Healy & James Minards
