Cornish Pirates make three new signings

Cornish Pirates have signed fly-half Angus Sinclair, scrum-half Mike Pope and full-back Luke Jones as they prepare for the new season.

Sinclair, 23, joins from Eastern Suburbs in Sydney, where he played first-grade rugby.

Pope, 23, has played for Exeter Chiefs' A team and Taunton, as well as being capped at England Students level.

Jones, 19, is from Guernsey and in 2012 became the first Channel Islander to earn an England Under-18 cap.

"These three young players fit our recruitment policy set out to meet the club ambitions of being Premiership-ready by 2016," said head coach Ian Davies.

"We look forward to seeing their development over the coming seasons."
