The Cornish Pirates are hoping to secure a home quarter final clash in the British and irish Cup

Our boys are already through, but a good win at Carmarthen Quins will mean they get to play in front of home fans.

Kick off is scheduled for 2pm on Saturday afternoon.

Backs coach Harvey Biljon, said: "It's exciting, we want to keep our roll going and keep building on the momentum we've created. So, it's a good place to be and the players are building on it, but we know just one result and all of that changes, so we know we've got to keep working hard.

"We'd like to make it a home quarter final. In order to do that, we've got to go there and win or draw the game, so this is one of our biggest games so far this season."

The last time the two sides met at the Mennaye in October, our lads inflicted a 44-32 defeat on the Welsh side.

The line up for Saturday's match is as follows:

Cornish Pirates:   JJ Kilmartin, T. Bedford, S. Hill, J. Fatialofa, B. Mercer, K. Hallett, T. Kessell, B. Maidment, A. Cheesman, K. Marriott (capt), G. Johnson, D. Barry, B. Prescott, R. Elloway, R. Storer.

Replacements:   P. Joyce, D. Semmens, J. Tyas, T. Duncan, G. Cattle, T. Riley, G. Pointer.
