Ex-Cornish Pirate Myerscough hopes for Leeds win
Former Cornish Pirates lock Mike Myerscough is looking forward to his return to Mennaye Field with Leeds Carnegie tomorrow.
Myerscough was one of four Pirates who moved to Headingley over the summer.
Lock Myerscough, wing David Doherty and scrum-half James Doherty are all in the starting line-up while second-rower Matt Smith is on the replacements' bench.
"I am excited to be going back down there," said Myerscough. "I have been looking forward to every game this season but obviously playing against your old club is something you look forward to.

"You know that it is going to be a very aggressive game, especially at their place, and we know we need to perform from minute one to eighty to get the outcome we want.
"The fans are very close to the pitch and that creates a great atmosphere for the home side.
"The Pirates like to kick deep and force you to come away from your own line with them putting you under pressure. We have to be sensible and make sure we play in the right areas of the field."
The Pirates have made changes to their line-up, despite their British and Irish Cup success over Dundee High last weekend.
Prop Alan Paver and hooker Rob Elloway are back, while Gary Johnson will partner Darren Barry in the second-row.
Fly-half Kieran Hallett, wing Matt Evans and the centre pairing of Junior Fatialofa and Tom Riley also return while fit-again club captain Gavin Cattle is named on the bench.
Cornish Pirates: Nowell; Pointer, Riley, Fatialofa, Evans; Hallett, Kessell; Andrew, Elloway, Paver; Barry, Johnson; Maidment, Burgess, McGlone (capt). Replacements: Storer, Yeandle, Prescott, Lyons, Cattle, Penberthy, Davies.
