An expected win over Scottish Premiership champions Ayr at the Mennaye Field next month should be enough to secure a home tie in the draw for the next stage of the competition. The Pirates travelled to St Peter keen to right the wrongs of a difficult reverse fixture in Cornwall just seven days before, when the Jersey pack had put them under huge pressure.
After a tight opening quarter to this game, which remained scoreless, the home side finally cracked, losing prop Nick Selway to the sin bin for a swinging arm offence at the breakdown. Within minutes the Pirates struck as a poor clearance kick downfield from former Exeter Chiefs wing Mark Foster found full-back Kieran Goss with time and space.
