Oh bloody hell, the sooner this winter is over the better. That's a lot of revenue lost on postponed fixtures. There's got to be another ground this can be played at, we can't keep postponing fixtures.

Moving to another venue would incur further costs. There is a free weekend in a fortnights time so I would expect it to be played then.

Saw it on the BBC yet the offy hasn't bothered to mention it yet, not very impressive is it?

Copied from the offy 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.

For further information please visit www.cornish-pirates.com/tickets
For those wishing to enjoy match day Hospitality in the ‘ITEC’ Sponsored Marquee, please contact Robyn, telephone 01736 335318/email robyn.ashurst@cornish-pirates.com

That's history now, so no point in going over it. There were good reasons for coming back to Penzance. We are where we are. Nobody can control the weather - it's been the wettest January in living memory.
Hope more people will be happy when we move to Truro!

Well three of us managed to make the trip today, battled through the motorway closure, then discovered the game is off... Still, weekend drinking round the area. Benbow later!



Still a Tyke - whatever the name!

Baldric - feel your pain. I hosted a mate from Gloucs when were due to play Hartpury and that got called off at 11am on the day. Still a weekend on the lash in Penwith is not a bad way to pass a few hours, and you'll just have to come back in a fortnight. Enjoy your weekend here and thanks for supporting our night time economy

If the rain continues we may have to go to Leeds.
How about Hayle, Redruth, dear old Camborne ?

A matter of interest which one of those Grounds would be your choice?

Camborne for me.

Let's hope it doesn't come to it, but going to another ground could be done because Hayle, Reds and Camborne all have spare weekends on 24th/25th weekend.
