The Cornish Pirates are hoping to build momentum as they welcome the Doncaster Knights later.

They are after a third win on the bounce.

It is the first of two Cup games in a row for our boys before a short Christmas break.

Player Coach Gavin Cattle: "We've started to pick up a bit of momentum so that always helps with confidence and with these youngsters confidence is always a very important thing. Going into Doncaster we've had two close contests recently winning one and losing one so it's going to be a test of where we've come in the last few weeks.

"We've been a bit up and down which is to be expected with a young new outfit. We've implemented a lot of new stuff which is starting to show in our fixtures. We've faired OK. Like any team developing you're going to have a dip and I'm sure there'll be a dip at some point again."

Elsewhere Launceston plan to stamp their authority after two wins on the bounce.

The Cornish All Blacks are feeling confident as they welcome Canterbury.

Director of Rugby Neil Bayliss: "Canterbury have been in this division for quite a few years now. They've always got a big pack, a pretty useful set of backs and they'll come to us pretty confident. They've had a couple of good victories recently. But I want Saturday to be all about us.

"We're building every week. We're getting better every week. There's no denying that, You look at our results over the last three or four weeks and we've been getting better week in week out. We've got to go into that game with confidence. We need to stamp our authority on that game, they're coming to our ground and we need to play our style of rugby."
