Andy Short Joins The Cornish Pirates

Published by the Pirate FM News Team at 10:53am 16th January 2012.

It is one in one out for The Cornish Pirates. 

Worcester Warriors' Andy Short has arrived at The Mennaye on loan.

This just days after back-rower Blair Cowan signed for the Midlands outfit.

The 20 year old centre/wing will stay until the end of this season and can only be called back if the Warriors require him for Premiership matches.


High Performance Manager Chris Stirling said:

"This is fantastic for both the Pirates and Andy. We can provide him with an opportunity to play top end championship rugby, helping him development, and the Pirates get to retain a healthy balance in the midfield.

"The relationship between the Pirates and Worcester is very positive and Richard Hill was very happy for Andy to join the Pirates and to be playing rugby, we are very excited to have Andy join our ranks."
