In rugby, Cornish Pirates have lost their final British & Irish Cup pool match to Ulster 27-23. The Pirates were outscored by three tries to two - the winning try coming in the final minute.
It's now three Premiership wins out of three for the Exeter Chiefs.
Rob Baxter's men were 18 - 16 winners at Sale tonight, thanks to six penalties from Gareth Steenson.
And in the Championship, the Cornish Pirates have bounced back after last week's heavy defeat by winning 16-8 at home to London Scottish. Thomas Kebsel scored two tries for the Pirates.
Cornish Pirates owner Dicky Evans has announced that he'll be handing over control of the club by the end of this season.
Evans led the Championship side into the professional era but 20 years on, the 67-year-old will now sell to a consortium of 100 share holders. He will continue to personally invest sponsorship money.
His ambition of taking the Pirates to the Premiership has been held up with Cornwall not having a stadium fit for the top-flight.
A new stadium in Truro has been granted planning permission and is due for completion in 2017 - but still requires funding.
