The Cornish Pirates say everything is still to play for as they head to Rotherham.

The game has been rescheduled for Sunday because of the bad weather.

Mathematically our boys could still make the Championship play offs and last time out they did beat the Titans.

But the long journey and shocking weather is expected to make this one an even tougher game than usual.

Backs coach Harvey Biljon said: "We're a lot further down the season now and Rotherham is always a very, very difficult place to go and play. So, we need to try and stay as focussed as we can be with all the distractions that are going on with regards to travel and the uncertainty."

The game could be in doubt because of the severe weather. But Harvey said once on the pitch they will be focussed on the job in hand: "Some of the results in the rest of the league went our way, there's definitely something to play for now. It's all going to be about building towards the British and Irish Cup and that quarter final against Munster."

In National Two, Redruth are told they need to get back to winning ways fast to keep alive promotion hopes.

The Reds are at Dings Crusaders on the back of two losses.

Their away form has not been great lately.

Head coach Ashley Morcom told Pirate FM it could go either way: "They're a good side. They're a typical Bristol side and they like to put it around a bit, but so do we. So, hopefully we can beat them at their own game.

This weekend's quite crucial really for the rest of the season. If we want to be in the top two by the end of the season we need to start winning again. Hopefully after the loss last week we are up for the game and we can go and perform."

The Cornish Blacks have a week off and will next play Bournemouth at Polson Bridge on 30th March.
