Cornish Pirates have made two changes to their side for this Sunday’s trip to Headingley Carnegie to face Yorkshire Carnegie.
Whilst the Pirates are one of the in form Championship sides, they don’t have a good record in games played at Leeds, their only victory being that famous 18-17 EDF National Trophy win in the snow almost exactly 9 years ago.
However, there is no doubt that the boys are looking to change that, speaking ahead of the journey DOR Ian Davies said: “It’s always a tough place to go to and we do not have a great recent record against them, both at home and in Yorkshire. However, the boys are looking forward to the challenge and keeping our good form going."
There are just two changes in the line-up from the one that started at home to Ealing Trailfinders last Sunday.
Both changes are in the backs, where Kieran Goss slots in on the right wing and Alex Dancer partners Tom Riley in the centre.
