Nottingham head for Fortress Mennaye.

The Cornish Pirates take on the Midlands outfit in the quarter final of the British & Irish Cup on Sunday.

When the sides have met in the Championship it has been closely fought.

Forwards coach Ian Davies is expecting another tight one…

“I spoke to the forwards earlier in the week about the fact we can only win two trophies as a professional rugby team. One is the Championship and one is the B& I Cup. So we’re fully focused. We won it in the first year, we slipped last year and we’re determined to try and get the trophy back”

“The away support is brilliant but the support we get here at the Mennaye is something that the boys always respond to. We had one blip against Bedford earlier in the year and they’re determined it doesn’t happen again. So Nottingham coming down here on Sunday, we’d much rather be here than away”
