Pirate FM Rugby Round-Up

The Cornish Pirates face a big match on Sunday as they fight for a place in the quarter-finals of the British and Irish Cup.

Top of the pool, our lads welcome Dundee to the Mennaye.

Conditioning coach Simon Raynes tells Pirate FM it is an important match: "We get teams down here that chuck the ball around and I think last time we played Carmarthen there was seventy points odd scored so it was a great game of rugby. Dundee are a good side.

"On the back of a few good performances we're starting to gel as a team and we're really excited about the cup competition. We can get out there and give a few guys a run who haven't played for a while."

Elsewhere, Redruth look to do the double on Bournemouth.

Our guys beat them at home earlier in the season.

Now the Reds are away on Saturday after six wins on the trot.

Meantime the Cornish All Blacks welcome Dings Crusaders, confident after their belting victory over Hartpury.

Launceston are two places above in league two and we beat the visitors the last time the sides met.

Both matches kick-off at 2.30pm on Saturday.
