The Cornish Pirates are facing one of their toughest games of the season.

They are away to top of the table Newcastle on Saturday evening.  

Our lads are hoping to bounce back from last weekend's defeat against London Scottish.

Their opponents, the Falcons are unbeaten in the Championship all season.

Assistant Coach Harvey Biljohn is expecting a tough clash. He said: "Travelling all the way to Newcastle is going to be a challenge in itself. But it's also a fixture where nothing's expected of us. Everyone's expecting everything to come from Newcastle, so let's just go out there, relax, give ourselves the opportunity to go out and play as much rugby as possible.

"I think they just enjoy the challenge of knowing that they're going to go up against a team that are favoured to go to the Premiership. It's testing themselves as individuals and collectively as a team against an opposition like that."

The Cornish Pirates are also missing a number of players through injury.

Head coach Ian Davies is aware that a tough challenge awaits, commenting: "Playing the Falcons this season, and especially away from home, provides a mighty challenge, but we'll just get up there and play and hopefully conjure up a performance to put the disappointment of last weekend behind us."

The squad for the match is as follows: W. Davies, B. Mercer, G. Pointer, T. Bedford, A. Smith, A. Penberthy, T. Kessell, J. Tyas, P. Burgess, A. Cheesman, D. Barry, G. Johnson (capt), P. Joyce, D. Semmens, R. Storer.

Replacements: P. Andrew, R. Elloway, B. Prescott, D. Lyons, K. Marriott, O. Hambly, T. Riley.
