IT'S BRISTOL & IT'LL BE BIG - IN THE SEMIS!
At the end of Stage 2 in this season's RFU Championship competition, the Cornish Pirates finished second in Pool B. They will now play Pool A winners Bristol Rugby in the two-legged semi-final.
The first 'semi', which is of mighty importance and is big in every way, will be played at home on Monday the 7th. May, the early May Bank Holiday, and because SKY television is covering the match it will kick-off at the rather unusual time of 1205.
Clearly a big big crowd will be present at the Mennaye Field for this match, with there a likely invasion of Bristol supporters. It is an 'all pay' game and the obvious advice is to purchase your tickets needs early. They are available from the club's ticket office 01736-331961 (open Mon - Fri from 9am - 12 noon), on-line at www.cornish-pirates.com, and from various Warrens bakers shops about the county. Season tickets holders who wish to book their usual seats in the stands have until Friday midday to do so and are advised to please telephone the ticket office accordingly.
The return semi at the Memorial Ground, Bristol, is to be played on Sunday 13th May (ko 1245), and the two-legged finals are scheduled to take place on Wednesday the 23rd and 30th May.
I hope that british forces broadcasting service (bfbs) show this, but that will depend on which sky sports channel it is on, I'm hoping it will be on either skyy sports 1 or 2, that way I can watch it in sunny Gibraltar.
Hard luck, Dan.
First leg at the Mennaye is on SKY 1, but the return leg at Bristol is on SKY 3.
It may change but don't hold your breath.
However, Radio Dreckly may be able to help with the away game.
C'mon you Pirates !!!!
