The Cornish Pirates head to Ireland for their British and Irish Cup semi final.

Our lads take on Cross Keys at Pandy Park.

We won 30 points to 3 when the two clashed at the Mennaye in December.

But forwards coach Ian Davies says that means nothing:

"They'd already qualified so their focus wasn't on the game. If you look at their performance in the Welsh Premiership this year they're in the top four and they're not going to be there by being any mugs. We're expecting a very physical battle"

"We've kept the dream alive of securing the Championship but we've got to put that on the back burner because all the focus has to be on the British & Irish Cup. We've done well up until now but now it's knock out rugby, one slip up and you don't go any further"
