Trina Lake rounds up this afternoon's first half action at the Memorial Stadium:
The Cornish Pirates have one foot in rugby's Championship play-off final as they lead Bristol by 10 points to 7 at half time in their semi-final second leg at the Memorial Stadium. The Pirates are ahead 55-31 on aggregate after outscoring their hosts in the first 40 minutes. A Rob Cook penalty gave them the lead before Bristol hit back with a Jon Goodridge try, converted by Tristan Roberts. But Cook stormed over for a Pirates try which he converted himself, leaving Bristol with a mountain to climb in their bid to return to the Premiership.
