Matt Bolwell and Sam Matavesi have signed new one-year contracts with Championship side Cornish Pirates.

Back-row forward Bolwell, 23, has made 60 appearances for the club since making his debut in 2013.

Hooker Matavesi, a 26-year-old Fiji international, joined the Pirates from Redruth in December.

"Sam is such a talented player who quickly found his feet and made a terrific impact," Pirates player-coach Alan Paver told the club website.

Cornish Pirates are fourth in the Championship table with one game of the season remaining.
