Two missed kicks in the second half cost Cornish Pirates a win at Leeds as they went down 14-13 to the Yorkshire side in the Championship.

Rob Cook missed a penalty with 17 minutes to go before Myles Dorrian saw his last-minute drop-goal attempt sail wide of the target.

Pirates led 13-9 at the break after a penalty try and two Cook penalties.

But Michael Stevenson's try with three minutes to go won the game for Leeds as the Pirates stay fifth in the table.
