In front of an excellent 4,306 Easter Sunday crowd at Camborne the Pirates defeated old foes Plymouth Albion 30-14 in a gripping National League 1 encounter. A result which leaves Graham Dawe’s charges uncomfortably too close to the relegation battle with tricky fixtures to come against Leeds and Moseley!
For the Pirates it was a first success in the league against Albion since the 2005/6 season. Rhys Jones helped himself to a 20 point haul scoring a try two penalties and three drop-goals! Pirates other tries came from flanker Blair Cowan and replacement full back Paul Devlin after some great work from Rhodri McAtee. The best Easter treat for the Cornish fans as the Pirates look to end their season on a high with a mouthwatering fixture against Doncaster Knights at Camborne next Sunday before rounding off their season the following week on Saturday 25th April again at Camborne against London Welsh.
Congratulations to Stithians on their 33 – 15 win over Bodmin in the Skinners Brewery Cornwall Club Cup Final at St. Austell on Easter Monday. Also to St. Ives on winning the Skinners Brewery Cornwall Cup 10 – 3, thanks to two unconverted tries scored by Stuart Turnbull and Richard Humphreys. Well done the Hakes.
