Cup Quarter Final For Cornish Pirates
8:00am 7th April 2013
The Cornish Pirates are fighting for a place in the semi finals of the British and Irish Cup.
Our lads face a quarter-final clash against Munster at home on Sunday afternoon.
It is first of three matches the squad will play in the seven days.
They also face a mid-week Championship match away against Rotherham, and a another away fixture against Nottingham.
Coach Harvey Biljon is bracing for a tough week. He said: "We've got to travel all the way to Rotherham, then back down here, then travel all the way up to Nottingham. Some serious miles are going to be clocked up this week. Obviously, the recovery the players need, the time that the medical team will need to work on certain of the players.
The Cornish Pirates won the first ever British and Irish Cup tournament in 2010, beating Munster to the title.
Munster however, are the current holders of the Cup.
Harvey added: "It's pretty exciting being in a quarter final, being in the latter stages of any competition. This is obviously a fixture where there's a little bit of history. You know, we played the inaugural B & I Cup game against Munster, and we were lucky enough to win the competition that season."
The squad for Sunday's match is as follows:
Cornish Pirates: W. Davies, G. Pointer, T. Riley, J. Fatialofa, M. Evans, A. Penberthy, G. Cattle (captain), L. McGlone, P. Burgess, K. Marriott, G. Johnson, D. Barry, P. Joyce, R. Elloway, P. Andrew.
Replacements: R. Storer, W. Tanner, J. Tyas, A. Cheesman, T. Kessell, J. Bentley, Sam Hill.
