The Cornish Pirates face the next in a tough run of games, at Jersey.

Our boys go in to the Championship clash off the back of some decent results and looking for a third win in a row.

But backs coach Harvey Biljon said one of the biggest challenges will be coming up against a raft of former players: "It's always going to be pretty emotionally charged and I'm sure that energy will flow through to the rest of their team mates. They also will feel that they've got an insight into the way we play. We've just got to put in a performance and shock what they expect."

The Pirates will face Jersey again in three weeks' time in two back to back games in the British and Irish Cup.

Harvey added: "We don't know yet how Jersey are approaching the British and Irish Cup so it depends on how they select from their squad for those fixtures. For us, it is about preparing our players for league fixtures and making sure that we give the same attention to the B&I cup as we do to the league.

"It's something we want to focus on but it'll definitely give us an insight into the back to back games we're going to have against them."

Elsewhere Launceston take on Chinnor at Polson Bridge, buoyed up by finally getting an away win on the board.

The visitors are riding high in League Two.

But head coach Cliff Rainsford says notching up some away points is a good confidence boost: "We went a couple of scores down early on but rather than let it affect us we just stuck to our game and really put the pressure on for those last 60 minutes. But it's always Chinnor, always going to be a hard game so you can't relax for a minute.

"They got promoted last year and we played them the first game of the season and the last game of the season and they're a big bunch of lads. They like to play the game so you've just always got to be on your guard with teams like that, because they can be dangerous."
