Cornish Pirates' back rower Blair Cowan is leaving the club.

He has signed an 18 month contract with Worcester Warriors.

New Zealand-born Blair joined the Pirates in January 2009 and has made 79 appearances.

The 25 years old has thanked fans for their support:


"The welcome and sincerity shown by supporters during my time in Cornwall has been great, and I would also like to thank Dicky Evans and all at the club for their help. This opportunity is one that needs to be taken at this time in my career, but I'll always be following the Cornish Pirates with extra special interest."

Cornish Pirates CEO Rod Coward commented:

"Taking the decision to allow players to leave whilst they are contracted to the Cornish Pirates is never easy, and we must always treat any request to do so on its merits, however the reality is that there is a higher level of rugby available and we believe that it would be wrong to deny Blair the opportunity to progress. We thank Blair Cowan for the contribution he has made to the Pirates during the past three years and wish him every success with Worcester Warriors."
