Pirates will be home in quarter-finals of British and Irish Cup
The Cornish Pirates have qualified for a home draw in the quarter-finals of the British and Irish Cup.
Pirates finished the group stage as the third-best qualifiers, winning five of their six games in the Pool Six.
The Penzance club lost their final group game against Ulster on Friday night, 27-23, but crucially retained their status as one of the top-four qualifiers, as other results over the weekend went their way.
Pirates can now look forward to a home tie at Mennaye Field when the competition resumes in April. Plymouth Albion just miss out on a home match after qualifying as the fifth-seeded side.
