The Pirate FM Rugby Round Up
2:11pm 21st November 2014
Launceston prepare for a tough game as they welcome Clifton.
The away side are coming down with confidence after a 50 point win.
It is after the Cornish All Blacks narrowly missed out against Cambridge last weekend.
Our boys want fans to keep faith after another one point defeat.
Director of Rugby Neil Bayliss says the near miss is the story of their season so far.
He said: "We are so nearly there, we need to keep working for the full eighty minutes and get the little things right.
"It is the fifth one this season and we have got to start turning these loses into wins now, we were so nearly there on Saturday and I just ask people to keep faith.
"Clifton is going to be a tough game, it is always tough, they had a great victory last weekend, so they are going to come down full of confidence, they play a good brand of rugby and we're well aware of that, we have just got to stick to our game plans and stick to our patterns and work that little bit harder to try and get the victory that we need."
Elsewhere, Redruth are feeling confident after a strong victory.
The Reds beat Dings Crusaders 36 - 25 last weekend.
They are away to the Henley Hawks and hoping to stay on track.
Coach Steve Larkins said: "We were pretty excited after that, we had to win last week to make sure we got out of that lull we had in our results over the last few weeks, but generally we're pretty pleased with the effort and things came down to a good team, and I think really they are a lot better than their position in the league suggests.
"I don't think there is any real pressure on us this weekend, Henley have had an unbelievably good start to the season, being at the top they are going to be a very handy team, especially on their ground, we are under no illusions that they are going to be good, very tough opponents, but we're just going to go out there and play some rugby and see what happens really."
And the Cornish Pirates welcome the Bedford Blues.
It is the last of a tough run of three for our boys.
Bedford Blues visit the Mennaye having closely beaten our lads in the British & Irish Cup last month.
The Pirates are looking to turn around two defeats on the trot.
Director of Rugby Ian Davies said: "Always a tough game against Bedford and this match is doubly important for us as it's the last Greene King IPA Championship home match before Christmas."
