The Pirate FM Rugby Round Up:


Redruth are hoping to get back on track as they welcome Bishops Stortford.

Coach Steve Larkins says the Reds are hoping to go out with a bang at their last home game for three weeks.

He says there is still some disappointment from last week's lose to Taunton though.

He said: "We performed pretty well and we probably deserved a bit more out of the game than just the losing bonus point, I think we probably could have sneaked a draw there and that would have been a fairer reflection of the game, but overall the players are happy with the way they are performing, we have just got to get those elusive away wins now and make sure we keep doing well at home as well.

"They are a tough team, they were good last year they came above us in the league last year, and beat us quite convincingly at their place, so we know that they are strong and that they looking to come down here and do the same."

Elsewhere Launceston are hoping to set things straight as they travel to Lydney.

The Cornish All Blacks are hoping for a win after having lost three games in a row.

But Director of Rugby Neil Bayliss says the team are disappointed after last week's result, he said: "The team are frustrated at the moment, it was another 60 minute performance, the boys know that they need to put in a performance for a full 80 minutes, I'm well aware of that, they are well aware of that, and that is what we have spoken about this week in training is the full 80 minute performance.

"Lydney are obviously a very hard side, what I call a traditional rugby club, they wear their heart on their sleeve up there and it is going to be a very tough encounter."

And the Cornish Pirates take on Cross Keys in the cup.
