Cornish Pirates joint head coach Gavin Cattle says Kyle Moyle is the best full-back in the Championship after moving to 11 league tries this season.

Moyle scored the final two tries as the Pirates came back from 10-0 down to win 23-10 at Richmond on Saturday to move up to third in the Championship table.

Josh Caulfield also scored two tries for the Pirates in the victory.

"I think he's the best full-back in the league," Cattle told BBC Radio Cornwall after the victory.

"You give him an opportunity, half a sniff, and he can turn you inside out.

"He had a good balance to his game, kicked when he should have kicked, turned them and then when he saw that opportunity he took it well."

Moyle added: "It's always nice to grab a couple of tries yourself, but it was important to get the bonus point at the end, so for me to score it was nice.

"The most important thing is we got that five-point win in the end."
