Cornish Pirates 'out of form since November' - Ian Davies

Moseley v Cornish Pirates

Cornish Pirates director of rugby Ian Davies says his side have been out of form for several months as their disappointing run of results continued.

The Pirates lost 28-20 away to Moseley on Friday, their fourth straight Championship game without a win.

"We're not playing well, we haven't probably since late November if we're really honest with ourselves," Davies told BBC Radio Cornwall.

"But we've got to roll our sleeves up - we've got some big games coming up."

The Pirates are marooned in sixth place in the table, with their hopes of making the end-of-season play-offs all but over.

But they have a home British & Irish quarter-final against Pontypridd - with the date confirmed for Sunday 6 April - while the next visitors to the Mennaye Field are Jersey, second from bottom of the Championship.

"Pontypridd in the B&I Cup is huge for us," said Davies.

"Jersey are fighting for their lives - the last team that came to the Mennaye fighting for their lives should have left with a win.

"They are a better side than Ealing so we've got to make sure we look at ourselves, and get better at what were doing.

"We're creating the chances, we're just not scoring the chances."
