The Cornish Pirates' appeal over being docked four points following that cup win against Bedford has been thrown out.

It is after match bosses said at one point, they had the wrong number of players on the pitch.

The club says they are "very disappointed."

Chairman Ian Connell was representing the club at the hearing.

He said: "We are naturally very disappointed with this decision. We took appropriate legal opinion in making our appeal and believed that we had a strong case. However we now move on to the next round of three pool matches starting at the end of November."

Director of Rugby Ian Davies added: "While disappointed with the outcome nothing has altered in terms of the task we face. We go into the next block of games knowing that three wins are required to progress to the quarter-finals."

The next match for the Cornish Pirates in the British & Irish Cup is away to Cross Keys on Friday 28th November, where the kick-off at Pandy Park is at 7.45pm.
