Pirate FM Rugby Round-Up
8:58am 21st September 2013
(Updated 8:58am 21st September 2013)
The Cornish Pirates lost to Leeds on Friday night.
Their home game opener in this season's Greene King IPA Championship ended 20-27.
The visitors are one of the favourite teams to be top of the table by the end of the season.
In National League Two, Redruth take on Southend on Saturday.
It is the Reds' third game of the new season but as yet, they have not managed to come away with a win.
They are disappointed after losing to Cambridge and to the Cornish All Blacks last weekend.
Some of the senior players are due to come back from injuries next week.
Head Coach Ashley Morcom said: "Southend have started well, us ourselves not so well, so we are looking to get a head start against Southend and I think we might come away with that win we are so desperately looking for.
"They are very direct and very abrasive, and we have got to try and meet that head on. Then treat them with a little bit of Redruth respect and take them on with a sword and hopefully we'll come away with that win."
Elsewhere, Launceston are away to Canterbury and both matches kick off at 3pm.
