The Cornish All Blacks are looking to build on their first win of the season as they travel to Dings Crusaders on Saturday.

Launceston came from behind to beat Shelford at Polson Bridge last weekend.

Also, the home side are second from bottom in National League Two.

But Director of Rugby Neil Bayliss tells Pirate FM that means nothing: "We travel to Dings Crusaders on Saturday which everyone in this league knows is not an easy task by any stretch of the imagination. They manage to get a lumpy pack every season and they've got a very good fly-half who kicks penalties from everywhere so again, discipline is key for us this weekend."

He thinks last Saturday's win shows promise: "I thought it was a very good team performance against a very determined Shelford side. I was disappointed with the first-half performance and I think the lads were as well and the second-half we came out and turned it round and recorded our first win of the season so yeah, I'm delighted with that."

Redruth are also hoping to put in a strong performance, after that defeat away to Cambridge.

The Reds lost 27 - 20 last Saturday.

Now they welcome Clifton, hoping to set the record straight.

Coach Steve Larkins says they are feeling confident: "We're looking forward to it. This will be our second home league match this season. We didn't really perform against the Cornish All Blacks at home so hopefully we can put that right this week. We're quite excited about it and looking forward, really, to getting back to the Rec.

"Clifton are always a strong team. They've been doing well this year, they're above us in the league, one place above us, so they're going to come down and I'm sure they're going to put in a good performance; they're a pretty strong outfit. Unless we're actually on top of our game it's going to be a hard encounter."

Both games kick-off at 3pm on Saturday.

The Cornish Pirates welcome Moseley on Sunday.
