Is the club looking at moving the game to a different venue maybe?

Maybe they'll reverse the fixture and play it at Hartbury, whatever happens it really needs to be played.

You couldn't make it up but the game is now going ahead at Hartpury with a 4pm kick off. Despite offering alternative dates and venues the B&I cup organising committee have ordered us to play the game tomorrow at Hartpury. This is unbelievable and goes completely against the spirit of the game. They have now set a dangerous precedent.

Google Hartpury College. Nice ground with a good grandstand. Had a cracking time there last year.

Great to see Alex Cheesman , Tom Cowan- Dickie and Matt Evans back to fitness and included in tomorrow's squad. Alex starts and the other 2 are on the bench.

Not to be disrespectful to the volunteers who put in countless hours on the ground but something like this was always likely to happen. Playing on a bog is not conducive to good rugby and hence we have to watch games like Jersey with their stick it up their jumper mentality and be bored to tears. If ever there was a reason to get into the new stadium with a decent playing surface this is it.

Although hopefully playable next week it's still going to be like a pudding so be prepared for another rolling maul fest as Carnegie come to town.

Agree about the need for the stadium - but there are a lot poorer pitches than the Mennaye.
Looks like it's going to chuck it down in Gloucester for the game, so it'll be pretty soggy there I expect.

It would be difficult to keep any pitch in a playable condition with the amount of rain we have had recently. I think I heard that we have had 56% more rain this January than our usual seasonal rainfall for the month.

I'm not sure this is the first time this as ever happened - not sure it has set a new precedent

In fact didn't we play Birmingham at home twice one season when we were at Camborne?

Could not the match have been played at another pitch in Cornwall eg Camborne, Redruth, Hayle ?

Fantastic result , a totally dominant display by the Pirates scoring 7 tries ,to earn an away quarter final against Ealing.

BBC has score as 41-0 to Hartpury. I'm more inclined to believe Pirate15.

Great effort - could be turning point for us. Unfortunately Jack Andrew injured early in the game.
