Rugby Round-Up

The Cornish Pirates travel to Ayr in the British and Irish Cup following what their coach has described as their best performance of the season.

Our guys beat Ulster at home in the first round last Friday.

Assistant coach Harvey Biljohn knows this Saturday's game will be another tall order.

He said: "We know Ayr are going to be very tough, they are the only Scottish team that has ever got to the quarter finals of the British and Irish cup, and they are the Scottish champions of the last couple of years. We are expecting it's going to be a pretty hostile environment up there, and we need to stay focused and stick to task.

"We'll take it a game at a time, it's been a good re-focus on two cup games before we go into a pretty tough November, it works out as two away games, but we'll have to flick the switch from cup back to league and just keep the squad working hard."

In National League 2, Redruth welcome Exmouth and Launceston travel to Clifton on Saturday.
