Published by the Pirate FM News Team at 8:01am 9th March 2014.

The Cornish Pirates look to cause an upset in the Championship.

They're up at Bristol, the league leaders.

But last two times out our boys have won.

Head coach Ian Davies admits they do find it hard at the Memorial Ground: "If you go there with a negative mindset you're going to struggle. So we're going out to try and score three tries. We haven't done that yet this year. The two victories were based on defence and hopefully we can show that attack and intent and challenge them.

"They're in a different stage of their development than we are certainly. They're fully pushing for promotion but we're going to go there as we did in the two previous games against Bristol. Everyone has written us off, no-one thinks we can go there to win probably except the players and coaching staff at the Pirates."
