The Cornish Pirates travel to Bristol, hoping for their first win of the season.

Our guys have lost both games so far this season, at home to Yorkshire Carnegie and London Scottish.

In contrast, the home side won both their opening games in the Championship.

That said, we turned them over twice last season.

Cornish Pirates' Director of Rugby Ian Davies is keen to secure the first league points of the season: "Picking up a few injuries last weekend it's going to be tough but I think we can get some points at Bristol.

"We are looking forward to a new venue and maybe a bit more luck as the Memorial Stadium was not a happy hunting ground for us."

A number of changes in the Pirates line-up from the one that started against London Scottish last weekend includes places for props Jamal Ford-Robinson and Tyler Gendall, and for wing Luke Jones.

Kyle Moyle is selected at full-back in place of Matt Evans, Laurie McGlone moves from No. 8 to lock, and in the back-row skipper Chris Morgan is joined by Joe Atkinson and Matt Bolwell.

Two players named on the bench who will look forward to a chance of making their Championship debuts are hooker Jack Innard and back-rower Todd Lowry.

Cornish Pirates:  

15 Kyle Moyle, 14 Kieran Goss, 13 Tom Riley,12 Rheon James, 11 Luke Jones, 10 Kieran Hallett, 9 Tom Kessell; 1 Jamal Ford-Robinson, 2 Aaron Carpenter, 3 Tyler Gendall, 4 Laurie McGlone, 5 Darren Barry, 6 Chris Morgan (capt), 7 Joe Atkinson, 8 Matt Bolwell.

Replacements:  

16 Jack Innard, 17 Jack Andrew,18 Will Carrick Smith, 19 Todd Lowry, 20 Bertie Hopkin, 21 Alex Dancer, 22 Tom Hendrickson.

The match kicks off at 3pm on Sunday.
