Ampthill make the long trip to The Mennaye for Round 3 of the Championship Cup on Sunday with the 15-13 last minute defeat in the league still relatively fresh in the mind!
Head Coach Paul Turner makes only one change to the starting XV from the 29 v 5 win against Richmond last Saturday – Player Coach Tom Hudson replaces Sam Hanks at inside centre as he returns to full fitness.
Ex-Pirates Caleb Montgomery and Paddy Ryan are on the bench that also also includes Zac Nearchou and the returning Pete White.
Ahead of the game Turner commented “There are never any easy games at The Mennaye. Pirates are starting to hit their straps and we’ll need to be at our best again on Sunday to take a positive result into an important block of league games for us in December”
