Cornish Pirates give debuts to new signings for Moseley clash
As the Cornish Pirates look to end a run of three successive Championship defeats with the visit of Moseley to the Mennaye Field on Sunday (1.15pm), head coach Ian Davies has named two debutants in his squad for the game.
Davies promised that there would be changes after last weekend`s disappointing 37-25 loss at Leeds and he has drafted in new loan signings from Premiership side Bath, Will Tanner and Chris Cook, to freshen up his team.
Tanner will start at hooker alongside Peter Joyce and Ryan Storer with Cook on the bench along with a third Bath loanee James Tyas.
The pack remains otherwise unchanged apart from Gavin Cattle taking back the captaincy as he starts at scrum-half alongside Aaron Penberthy who has impressed since his return from injury a fortnight ago.
