More news about Friday’s Cornish Pirates game

A couple of updates for anyone heading down to Penzance on Friday night:

Cheap ticket deal on Pirate FM

Pirate FM have a ticket deal on the go where you can get a “Family” ticket for £16.

That’s a ticket for 2 adults and 2 children – doesn’t say that you have to take children anywhere!! So that’s 2 adults for £8 each – much better than the £15 on the door price.

It might still be August – but the new season starts on Tuesday for Roseland RFC. It’s going to be a busy week…
