The Cornish Pirates travel to London Scottish on Saturday knowing a win will help keep their play-off hopes alive.

Our guys are 6th in the Championship which is just one place behind the home side.

We lost to Ulster in the British and Irish Cup last week.

Director of rugby Ian Davies says time to bounce back: "A great performance over in Ulster. (There are) a lot of youngsters on the pack so hopefully they'll have gained experience from that but also we've got to learn the lesson of being in the lead and giving away soft scores; that's what hurt us, the score before half time, because we just lost out by four points."

In National League Two, Redruth say this Saturday's game against Bournemouth is a must-win.

The Reds are only a couple of spots above the relegation zone.

The cash-strapped club have lost four games in a row.

Head coach Ashley Morcom said: "We've got an interesting four games within the next five weeks that we've targeted to get four wins under our belts so obviously it starts this weekend with Bournemouth. If we trip at the first hurdle we're going to be struggling so it's important the guys get their heads on and come out all guns blazing."

Elsewhere Launceston travel to Bishops Stortford after last weekend's game against Ampthill was postponed.
