Last gasp winner for the Pirates

A last gasp converted try has secured a narrow victory for the Cornish Pirates in the Championship this afternoon.

Alex Cheesman touched down, and fly-half Laurence May kept his nerve to slot the match-winning conversion with the last kick of the game.

That's three wins in a row in all competitions, and lifts them up to 10th place in the table.
