Pirates game postponed

From CP site:-- Following a pitch inspection carried out by an independent official at the Mennaye Field today, it has been decided to postpone Sunday’s scheduled Cornish Pirates versus Yorkshire Carnegie match in the Greene King IPA Championship.

The ground has experienced very poor weather this winter, and with a forecast for further rain it was deemed likely that the pitch would once again be unplayable.

Supporters who purchased tickets in advance for this match should keep them safe for use when the rescheduled Round 15 fixture takes place, the date to be set by the RFU’s organising committee. Confirmation is expected quite soon, when a further announcement will be made through the usual channels.

Tickets for the new date will be available at the gates on the day, whilst in the meantime they can also be purchased either through the ticket office, telephone 01736-331961, or on-line. The ticket office is open Monday to Friday, from 9am until 12 noon.

Looks sensible to make an early decision given the travel distance for the Carnegie players and supporters.

No doubt about that, but after the problems with their cup game and no sign of the weather improving, shouldn't they be looking at alternative venues?



If I had all the money I've spent on drink ..... I'd spend it on drink.

It's called S4C and they have been trying to make it happen for years!

I'd recommend you seek out "The Crown" if you get a chance, brewery pub for the Cornish Crown brewery. Great pub, great beer!

Not when your flight, car and accommodation is all booked. No point cancelling as booked for other stuff on nonplaying weekends and insurance has an excess making it not worth claiming.

Still we're away and it's over 0C. Can't see how the wind can't dry the pitch up. Stinks a bit to us and a couple of locals we've been chatting to.

Re-scheduled for Sunday 25th February at 2.30. It's to be hoped it will have stopped raining by then.

Gelbel - get to the Old Coastguard, and have a drink in their Beer Garden. Stunning view, great place!

To all fans who have enjoyed the hospitality of captain Benbow and Trisha over the years, Sunday marks their retirement from the Admiral Benbow. We have been honoured with an invite to their leaving do, so of you wish to bid them a farewell, let me know and I will pass it on.

No view today Mark - humping it down with lots of low cloud. Sitting outside might be a challenge too.

The Legion looks like a good place to watch the England match.

Baldric - please pass on my best wishes to Marshy and Trish. They did a great job at the Benbow, be interesting to see what happens to it now. A refit perhaps?

Good call on the Crown Mr C. After a day watching rugby in Mousehole, it was a good night back in Penzance - plus had pizza delivered too!

Just bumped into two fans in Wetherspoons who didn't even know it was off.

Not made of money Almo. As Mr GB told the Pirates' ticket office when they called to ask if he wanted to hold on to the tickets for the rearranged match: "Yeah, if you'll pay for the flights, car hire and accommodation."

TBH, even if I could afford it, I won't be able to get the time off - getting these few days off was bad enough.
