The Cornish Pirates are looking to extend their unbeaten run into 2013

They are at home to Bristol for a New Years Day Championship clash, after four wins on the trot.

The side have only lost once, to Bedford, in the last ten matches.

Backs coach Harvey Biljohn said the recent downpours have made training tougher: "We've had quite a bit of preparation in poor conditions. We've had Nottingham down here in a bog. We went away to Swansea in the pouring rain and then we've had Plymouth again in pretty tough conditions, so we're getting used to it and we're pretty prepared to play the conditions.

When the two sides met in September, Bristol came out on top. Harvey adds the Cornish Pirates will be looking to settle that score: "We're a different team to where we were at the beginning of the season. We were unlucky to not come away with the bonus point but like I say it's a long time since then, and we're just looking forward to the new fixture and getting some time off to recharge and carry on with the rest of the season."

The Cornish Pirates squad are: W. Davies, T. Bedford, T. Riley, J. Fatialofa, B. Mercer, K. Hallett, G. Cattle (capt), L. McGlone, P. Burgess, K. Marriott, D. Barry, D. Lyons, B.Prescott, R. Elloway, A. Paver.

Replacements: R. Storer, D. Semmens, P. Joyce, G. Johnson, B. Maidment, T. Kessell, S. Hill.
