The turf is expected to fly as London Scottish visit the Cornish Pirates.

Both teams are on a winning run in the Championship.

The visitors are on a high, after beating three of the league's toughest teams.

Head coach Ian Davies, said: "There's threats across the pack, really. The whole team across the board are going to be on the mettle this week, otherwise we're going to come unstuck.

"The concentration's needed for the full eighty minutes, because Scottish could attack from any aspect of the game, be it set piece or from back play.

"They're certainly the form horses since they've appointed new coaches and have gone full time. But we have the advantage, I suppose, that they've got to come to us so it should be a good battle."

The Cornish Pirates are sitting at fourth in the table, and are unbeaten in four games.

The squad for Sunday's game will be as follows:

Cornish Pirates:   W. Davies, B. Mercer, T. Riley, J. Fatialofa, M. Evans, K. Hallett, T. Kessell, L. McGlone, P. Burgess, K. Marriott (captain), D. Barry, D. Lyons, B. Prescott, R. Elloway, P. Andrew.

Replacements:   R. Storer, D. Semmens, P. Joyce, G. Johnson, B. Maidment, G. Cattle, G. Pointer.
