Pirates look to bounce back from successive league defeats

Ian Davies' men suffered a 62-26 defeat at the hands of Worcester Warriors, before going down 27-15 to top-four chasing London Scottish.

Former Bristol hooker Tom Channon bagged a double at the Richmond Athletic Ground, but it wasn't enough to prevent a second straight loss.

Cornish Pirates have never lost to Bristol at Mennaye Field since the Championship began in 2009.

Last season, Andy Robinson's side succumbed to a 21-15 loss in Penzance as Kieran Goss bagged a brace.

Following Sunday's game, Cornish Pirates travel to Moseley on Saturday, 7 February.
