Ground Information:

Formerly known as Penzance & Newlyn Pirates, the Cornish Pirates play their home games at their traditional home at Mennaye Field in Penzance.

There has been much talk of plans to build a permanent 15,000- seat stadium which will be fit to host Premiership rugby, but the club is still considering its options, particularly as the minimum entry requirements to the Premiership are in a state of flux.

The club developed a business plan with Cornwall Council to build a stadium which could host both the Pirates and Truro City Football Club, but   the Council refused any public funding

 

June 2015

The long-running saga over a new stadium for Cornish Pirates is set to drag on even further.

The clubs’ hopes were dashed when Cornwall Council’s strategic planning committee meeting to consider a retail development which would largely fund the £10million was postponed at short notice.

The 6,000 capacity stadium – with the option to extend to the 10,000 necessary to satisfy Premiership rugby criteria for a place in the top flight – planned for Threemilestone near Truro, is crucial to any hopes Pirates have of playing Premiership rugby in the foreseeable future.

Football and Rugby crowds (Tue, 06 Feb 2018)
  Why do you think a rugby crowd is so different from a football crowd? Even if it isn’t that different in demographics and profile, the spectator experience certainly is.   Basically, football fans are not trusted not to monster each other. So we’re all on CCTV in and around the ground, and the whole … Continue reading Football and Rugby crowds

Hats off to the Aussies…. (Tue, 23 Jan 2018)
  Yes, hats off to the Aussies….   Rugby, as evidenced by many a hidden vote in a transparent process, is fond of its decidedly old-school systems and hierarchy.   But if the appointment of Raelene Castle as the Australian Rugby Union’s new CEO was considered ground-braking, the ARU’s new Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) was … Continue reading Hats off to the Aussies….

Rugby must continue living on the brink if it is to move forward (Wed, 10 Jan 2018)

Does Test Rugby need stricter rules? (Tue, 14 Nov 2017)
Evidently Rhys Webb wants to have his Welsh cake and eat it. The Ospreys and Lions scrum-half signed for Toulon earlier this month, days before the Welsh Rugby Union announced a change to its policy governing players outside the country, entrapping the 28-year old. The new rules outline that players moving to England or France … Continue reading Does Test Rugby need stricter rules?
