The Cornish Pirates are back in Championship action with a top of the table clash.

Our lads are at London Welsh.

The former Premiership boys are gunning to bounce straight back up.

But Pirates' assistant coach Harvey Biljon says his lads are feeling confident: "We know, not only this game against London Welsh is going to be tough, but the rest of the season, but it's exciting. These are the games that you want to play and you want to play these big teams at the top of the table. That's where we want to be and that's who we want to be competing against.

"They are top of the table, they are the team that's come down from the Premiership. They've stated they clearly want to bounce straight back up to the premiership so it'll be a tough fixture away at London Welsh but something we're looking forward to."

Elsewhere, Redruth are back on the road still looking for that elusive away win.

But they have not notched up any points away from The Rec yet this season.

Reds coach Ashley Morcom said: "It's not just us who find it hard, everybody in the league does. We're going up there, trying to keep it really simple stick to our structure as best we can and hopefully we can put some points on the board earlier and make them chase the game and then if we can hold on hopefully get our first win away from home this season.

"They're quite an abrasive side, as you drive into the ground you can't help but look around and get a bit distracted, but that's part of their home form, they're pretty good at home,. It's not just us that fall foul to that, a lot of people do."
