Cornish Pirates v Bristol

Eighty minutes of rugby stands between the Cornish Pirates and Championship victory.

Our guys travel to Bristol in the second leg of the play-off finals, having won the first 45-24. But they cannot be promoted because their stadium does not meet Premiership standards.

Backs' coach Harvey Biljon says that does not matter: "The first message after the game was yes, enjoy the victory, but we need to keep our feet firmly on the ground. We know the threat that Bristol are going to bring at their home ground. I think Ian said at the beginning of the week it's going to be like World War Three.

"Our support travels everywhere with us. It's absolutely essential to everything we do. Again, this weekend at Bristol it's going to be even more important. They do feel supremely confident that they can turn the deficit around. We just need to go with the same attitude and same endeavour that we had in the previous game".
