The Cornish Pirates coach is warning it could be the end of the club, unless they can get a stadium built.

Ian Davies has launched a blistering attack on the council after it refused to use ten million pounds to back the scheme.

He says, without it, we could be looking at the end of professional sport in the Duchy.

County Hall decided not to contribute money to the proejct at Threemilestone, throwing the future of the project into doubt.

Without it the Cornish Pirates can not be promoted to the top tier of rugby, because its current ground does not meet strict guidelines.

Now Mr Davies has warned that it will make it more difficult to recruit and retain the best talent for next season because players know that they will stay in the Championship again, even if they win the play offs.
