The Launceston director of rugby says they need to hit January hard.

They travel to Shelford this weekend.

The Cornish All Blacks won the last time the sides met.

But Neil Bayliss knows their first game of 2015 won't be easy.

He said: "Shelford had a bit of form over the last few weeks, obviously they're at home and we're travelling up to them so it is going to be a tough day at the office for us.

"We need to hit January hard this season, we can't rest in January we need to push on and get some good performances and get some wins under our belt."

Elsewhere the Cornish Pirates coach says they have tricks up their sleeve as they welcome Jersey.

It is after that 27-19 derby win against Plymouth last weekend.

Director of Rugby Ian Davies said: "Matches against Jersey have historically been close affairs and I see this weekend being another difficult game for us.

"Our challenge is to back up a good result at Plymouth with another one at the Mennaye. More back to back wins are something we must strive to achieve as we continue our rugby development over the next 16 months."

Elsewhere Redruth welcome Cambridge.
