The Cornish Pirates prepare to do battle with London Welsh.

It is the second leg of the Championship play off later.

Our boys lost 21 points to 37 at The Mennaye in the first tie.

Backs Coach Harvey Biljon says they could not play any worse:

"They've already spoken this week about letting down their supporters, letting themselves down and I think waiting for this next game has felt like an eternity. They just want to get on the field and play now"
