Cornish Pirates make several changes for Bristol challenge
Cornish Pirates boss Ian Davies has freshened up his side with several changes ahead of Sunday's tough trip to face Bristol at the Memorial Ground (3.15pm), writes Dick Straughan.
Wes Davies, out of action with an Achilles injury since mid-October, makes a welcome return at full-back with Gloucester loanee Rob Cook unavailable.
Gavin Cattle drops to the bench in an otherwise unchanged back division with Tom Kessell taking over at scrum-half.
Kyle Marriott will lead the side with the only other change to the starting XV seeing former Bristol lock Darren Barry returning to action to face his old side.
