The Cornish Pirates are celebrating their twenty-five points to seventeen win over Rotherham Titans.

It is their first victory of the play-offs after disappointment against Bedford and Leeds.

Speaking before the match, forwards Coach Ian Davis said, "We need to start turning close games into victories for the Pirates. Both games we should've won and we haven't, and that could be the difference between going through to the semi-finals. We've got four games left, and we're under no illusions that we're probably going to have to win all four.

"We've got to play from the first whistle to the last. If we drop off in intensity or lose concentration for any part game, we're now in the top eight. The teams in the top eight finish in the top eight because they're the best teams in the league, so we've got to make sure that we don't give anybody the chance to score points."
