Match Highlights: Cornish Pirates 23-29 Bath Rugby

In what started as a sunny, crisp evening, soon turned into a greasy and slippery session for Bath Rugby as they took on Cornish Pirates at the Mennaye Field to secure a four-try bonus point in their Premiership Rugby Cup opener.

Ewan Richards led the team for the first time in his Bath Rugby career in what was a huge moment for the homegrown 21-year-old. 

The skipper even got the first score on the board for his team using his height and power to find himself on the right side of the try-line. 

Magical moments came from Will Muir, who returned after a whole year on the sidelines, George Worboys, whose boot slotted plenty of Bath’s points, and Sam Harris was took a swandive over the line to add to his try-tally.
