The Cornish Pirates are through to the quarter finals of the British and Irish Cup.

Six tries helped them beat Dundee High 34-14 at the Mennaye Field, despite some stiff opposition.

Sam Hill scored after just two minutes, with Kieran Hallett putting away the conversion.

It means they finish top of Pool Three with an impressive five wins out of five.

The Duchy side will now travel to Wales to play for the right to play their quarter final on home turf.

They take on Carmarthen Quins, off the back of six wins in a row.
