The Pirate FM Rugby Round Up

The Pirate FM Rugby Round Up

Published by the Pirate FM News Team at 2:07pm 14th November 2014.

Launceston are feeling confident after their first win in six games.

The Cornish All Blacks are hoping to stay on track as they travel to Cambridge.

Director of Rugby Neil Bayliss says they are going in strong.

He said: "Obviously the guys are on a high after last weekend's performance, pleased to get a win, it was a long time coming and nice to get that monkey off our back, we have been playing well all season and we turned it into a result last Saturday which was long overdue.

"We play rugby in Cornwall so every away trip is long, but Cambridge is probably one of the furthest we play all season, so for some of the lads in the squad it is a new experience for them, we go up there with a bit of confidence after last weekend and we will stamp our authority on the game and try and come back with a victory."

Elsewhere Redruth welcome Dings Crusaders.

Both teams have lost their last two games, and are hoping for a win.

And the Cornish Pirates travel to Rotherham.

They are hoping to get things back on track after last week's 13-28 defeat against Nottingham.

Director of Rugby Ian Davies tells us they are hoping to turn things around.

He said: "Obviously we are disappointed after last week's performance, we had made progress from game one, but last week we made a backwards step, so the focus this week has been to get back on the horse as they say, and keep improving.

"Rotherham have a good record at home, and the last few years Lee Blackett has been playing a good brand of rugby, so it is a challenge, but the focus has been on us this week because of the disappointing aspects from last week, and we need to get those right."
