The Cornish Pirates are back in action after an enforced two week break because of the storms.

The lads are up at Moseley for a rescheduled Championship match.

The hosts are known for giving the Pirates a run for their money.

But back rower Chris Morgan says the break will go in their favour: "It's given us a chance to re-focus what we want to do after a couple of poor results. It's given us a real chance to get back and enjoy ourselves. Everyone freshen up their bodies, focus on what we want to do and get some points away at Moseley.

"It'll be a pretty physical game. Moseley has always got a good pack, it's somewhere where we've struggled in the past and we've had a lot of draws up there. They're a good set of forwards, they're well drilled, well coached and they like to play a lot of rugby so we're expecting a tough game."

Chris will be captain on what will be his 150th appearance for the Pirates and making a welcome return from injury alongside him in the back-row is No. 8 Laurie McGlone. Will Graulich returns to partner Darren Barry in the second-row, and Alex Cheesman comes back into the starting line-up as the chosen open-side flanker.

In the backs Matt Evans is also fit again to slot in on the wing, which sees a move from out wide to scrum-half for the versatile Mike Pope, who will have Angus Sinclair as his half-back partner.

Tom Hendrickson is selected in the centre and Craig Holland at full-back. Named on the bench is lock forward Will Carrick Smith who has joined the Pirates on a dual-registration agreement with Exeter Chiefs.


Cornish Pirates:   15 Craig Holland, 14 Matt Evans, 13 Tom Hendrickson, 12 Junior Fatialofa, 11 Kyle Moyle, 10 Angus Sinclair, 9 Mike Pope; 1 Shane Cahill, 2 Rob Elloway, 3 Alan Paver, 4 Will Graulich, 5 Darren Barry, 6 Chris Morgan (capt), 7 Alex Cheesman, 8 Laurie McGlone.

Replacements:   16 Aaron Carpenter, 17 Kieran Davies, 18 Will Carrick Smith, 19 Jake Parker, 20 Tom Kessell, 21 Kieran Hallett, 22  Tom Riley.
