Be good to see Nodar having a first runout.

A last minute try from Robin Wedlake wins the game for the Pirates 36-29.
Set piece was again under pressure with a number of stolen line outs and scrum going backwards on occasion.
Full credit to the boys for keeping going and scoring at the death after going through a number of phases.
A hard earned 5pts and Hartpury gained their first points in the cup with 2pts.

Gutsy effort and well done to the buys for sticking in there and getting the winning try with the last play of the game while we we're down to 14 with Matavesi in the bin. 5 points, job done. Tough game at Bedford to come and if we can win that we should qualify.

With that good effort from Hartpury, I hope they avoid relegationó after all, they are our local derby.

It was worth the journey just to see the last try, keeping possession for the final three or four minutes and winning the game.
Not sure that `Sir` liked us today on the back of how many calls he made against us.
Good sprinkling of Pirates in the stand of a nice ground

Cold only listen yesterday but all things considered a great result against a considerably strengthened Hartbury side. Our character shone through again and a 5 pointer was grabbed at the death. Seems we had problems with 'Sir' once more, is it that we are pushing the rules or are the officials not up to speed sometimes?

Set piece was poor Iím afraid. Christian Judge is a massive loss, Iíd certainly never appreciated just how good he was.
My second visit to Hartpury and I got the roads wrong again😱
I have to say the beer was terrible and £5 for a Bookers cheeseburger is taking the proverbial.
