Pirate FM Rugby Round-Up
7:01am 29th March 2014
The Cornish Pirates prepare to do the derby this weekend.
Our guys travel to Plymouth on Saturday after last weekend's victory over Nottingham.
Albion lost the last time the sides met.
Pirates' Director of Rugby Ian Davies tells Pirate FM there is pressure on both sides: "The head coach of Plymouth has made a big statement that they want to finish above the Pirates this year so they've certainly put all their eggs into the basket for this match; they haven't beaten the Pirates for a long time. But for us, we've just got to make sure we're the best that we can be."
Redruth and Launceston are also in action on Saturday.
The Reds are looking to bounce back from last week's drubbing at Hartpury as they welcome Ampthill.
Our guys lost the last time the sides met and coach Ashley Morcom knows it will be another tough one, with the visitors 2nd in the league: "They're around the top of the table for a reason so we've got to make sure we give them the respect that they deserve by giving them a really good game. We're going to throw everything we've got at Ampthill and hopefully, all going well, we should be able to turn them over."
Elsewhere, Launceston are away to Bournemouth.
