The Pirates first match of the season went right down to wire away from home against the Trailfinders in the Greene King IPA Championship.

Despite missing out on an opening day victory the Pirates have got a lot of positives to take away from this match as they prepare to host promotion favourites Bristol at the Mennaye Field next Sunday.
