There is another tough clash on the road for the Cornish Pirates.

Our boys are up at Moseley in the Championship.

The hosts have a reputation for solid home performances.

Head coach Ian Davies says the team is raring to go:

"We know we're going to go there and it's going to be a difficult game and we've got to make sure that everything that we do we do to the best of our ability. Set piece, defence, attack, kicking, the kick chase, everything we do has to be top drawer otherwise we'll get turned over.

"Away from home they seem to struggle when they come to Cornwall, but when we play up there they always give us a battle. A very dogged determined side that this year is scoring a lot of points.

"Our emphasis needs to be doing our thing and being accurate with it. We were good against Leeds in the first half and then went off the boil, so we must strive for that 80 minutes performance."

Following their last two visits at Billesley Common the Cornish Pirates have drawn.

They are going in off the back of a satisfying 21-8 points home victory over Leeds.

Moseley are presently tenth in the league table and the Pirates are seventh.

England under 20s centre Sam Hill, who is dual-registered with Exeter Chiefs, is set to make his first appearance for the Pirates this season. His inclusion is one of three changes in the back-line from the team that started against Leeds, with the other two forming a fresh half-back pairing in Aaron Penberthy and a fit again Gavin Cattle.

Laurie McGlone will lead the side again from No. 8, and is part of a pack which sees starts given former Moseley lock David Lyons and prop Ryan Storer.


Cornish Pirates:   J. Nowell, G. Pointer, T. Riley, S. Hill, M. Evans, A. Penberthy, G. Cattle, L. McGlone (capt), P. Burgess, B. Maidment, G. Johnson, D. Lyons, A. Paver, R. Elloway, R. Storer.

Replacements:   J. Yeandle, P. Joyce, D. Barry, T. Kessell, K. Hallett, A. Cheesman, W. Davies.  


In League Two Launceston host Lydney at Polson Bridge knowing they have also got a fight on their hands.

The visitors are second from bottom and gunning for points.

Cornish All Blacks Captain Tom Rawlings says they want a win before they go into a break:
"It does create a different mind-set a much more positive mind-set and we want to carry on that run before we go into the week's break. We've got a big run of games coming up after that we've got Bournemouth away and Barking away. It's a big time for us at the moment.

"We're very aware of what Lydney are going to throw at us this weekend. We know that we've got to be on our mettle to be able to get some points. It is going to be a big game for us, there's no hiding that. We found some good form last weekend at home and we want to carry on that run"

Elsewhere in League Two Redruth are away to close rivals in the table Hartpury College.
