The Cornish Pirates travel to Ealing.

It is the first championship season for The Trailfinders.

The Pirates are disappointed after losing 20-17 to Leeds last week.

Coach Harvey Biljon said the lads have been training hard: "Some weeks are going to be physical, some weeks are going to be fast, and some weeks are going to be slowed down because of the weather conditions. We just need to make sure we can adapt all the time, adapt not only to the opposition, but the conditions and make sure we can step up, the players are definitely working hard at that."

In National League Two...

It is a home game for the Cornish All Blacks.

Hartpury College are travelling down to Polson Bridge.

Last season, Launceston came away with a win and a draw out of the two games.

Elsewhere, Redruth take on Chinnor.

The Reds are feeling positive after their victory against Southend last weekend.

But the league leaders could prove a challenge.

Ashley Morcom, Head Coach, said: "We were very lucky last week, and I think Chinnor's luck is starting to run out a little bit, so we're going up there with the intention to stick to the game plan and hoping we can come away with a big w.

"We are very excited. We're going in with no expectations, we're just going to play some rugby and have a bit of fun."
