See on the BBC web site that it is likely council wont put any money into the new stadium throwing project into doubt - Shame for Pirates if that turns out to be the case

The fight's not over yet. The final decision rests with the Council Cabinet, but regardless of that this long fight's not over yet!! (Sm109)

Was on twitter this morning talking with Brendan Gallagher about this and how us Quins would love a pre-season friendly with them, the tourism benefit and how the fans deserve a good stadium.

He suggested that perhaps a small note to the council could be in order. So maybe an idea?

Now this still has to go to the executive council I believe so there's still a chance that common sense will be made:

Kevin Lavery, chief executive
Cornwall Council, County Hall, Truro, TR1 3AY

If its a case of funding, you might be surprised how generous the wider rugby community would be. I'd certainly lob enough into the pot to buy a brick or two! Good Luck! (Sm72)

Minor note - the chief exec isn't an elected official. Targeting the councillors in marginal wards with 'support your community club or...' would be an idea if not already done. If the sitting councillor doesn't suppot then the other side (I'm not familiar with Cornish politics other than the near complete lack of labour councillors meaning I can comment more freely) will - mostly.

And I'll buy a brick.

Wonder if going in with Truro FC was a good idea, with the problems associated with that club may not have helped.

re the point above on bringing tourist money into Truro (especially during the winter) - I agree, a very sensible reason to get a club with a decent stadium. The same councillors though thought about taxing tourists to come to Cornwall so having a scheme to bring more people down may not be to their liking. I doubt this will go through. Pirates perhaps need to think about being a feeder club to Exeter.

Good article, and presume the second to last paragraph is based on your twitter conversation

Right now we're a feeder Club for Quins and Wuss - but no not Exeter!

People should target members of the Cabinet, not the Chief Executive. The list is here [democracy.cornwall.gov.uk]

Good article

Apart from the implication that they would be promoted this year, but for this.

Thanks for your support, sympathy and ideas.

There is huge anger and frustration down here.....and not just among the rugby community.

As a club we need to channel that anger and support to the right areas. We can start by winning the final against London Welsh. We need to do that for professional pride and also to highlight the absurdity of the play off system and the harshness of the ground criteria regulations.

Hopefully the Cornish Pirates marketing department will recognise the groundswell of anger and frustration and use it to ensure a full house on the 23rd for the first leg against London Welsh.

I still think that the Cabinet may well overturn this decision.Some of the nay sayers have suggested that it would be political suicide if they did so. I tend to think that as the anger and support swells the Cabinet will recognise that the Council have made a huge mistake and will have the sense to overturn this decision.

In the meantime,any support from you good Quins people would be much appreciated.
