Published by the Pirate FM News Team at 7:01am 12th October 2013

The Cornish Pirates took on the Ulster Ravens.

Their successful skipper, Gavin Cattle, made his 200th appearance for the club.

In National Two, Redruth travel to Bournemouth, looking to get their first away win under their belts.

Last time the two met the Reds came out on top.

But they have only won one game so far this season.

Forwards coach, Ashley Morcom, said: "We have only lost to Exmouth, and Exmouth obviously throw the ball around. We have put a bit of research into that, we've scored a lot of tries but obviously have let in a lot as well, so hopefully we can show our defense up and make sure we out score them.

"It is not an easy place to go to, but we're only 5 games into the season, it's not really that worrying at the minute. The only worrying fact is we can't back our home fixtures up with our away ones, so we've got to make sure we work this weekend."

Elsewhere, the Cornish All Blacks take on Bishops Stortford.

It is the first time the visitors have come to Polson Bridge.

The Hertfordshire team are also playing Level 4 rugby for the first time in their history.

Both matches kick off at 3pm.
