Cornish Pirates 41 Ospreys PS 5 Review

The Cornish Pirates picked up another comfortable victory against an Ospreys Premier Select Side on Sunday at Mennaye Field in Penzance in the 2nd round of the British and Irish Cup.

Before the match started there was a touching display of respect as players, officials and supporters joined in applause in tribute to Anthony Foley Munster's head coach and former Ireland international who recently passed away.

The game itself got off to a quick start with The Pirates captain, Tom Duncan rounding off a great move scoring a Try with only 80 seconds of play and that really set the tone for the rest of the game.

The Cornishmen continued to press and build on the impressive start with tries from Marlen Walker and Alex O’Meara, and a penalty from Laurence May gave them a 24 point lead in the first 30 minutes

Ospreys PS had brief period of pressure which ultimately ended with a try from Tom Williams.

Tries later on in second half came from Alex Cheesman and were rounded off by further tries from Tom Duncan and Alex O’Meara to give The Pirates a comprehensive victory.

It’s back to the Greene King IPA Championship next week for the Pirates as they take on the Rotherham Titans at Clifton Lane, on Saturday in a 3pm kick off.

Will was joined on the Phone by Alan Paver, Player Coach of the Cornish Pirates this morning. You can hear the post match review below.
