Cornish Pirates centre Tom Cooper joins Redruth on loan

Redruth have signed centre Tom Cooper from Cornish Pirates on an initial two-week loan.

Pirates signed the 24-year-old in the summer from Newport Gwent Dragons but has so far failed to secure a regular first team place.

"I spoke with Harvey Biljon (Pirates backs coach) and he offered us Tom for a couple of weeks minimum," said Reds director of rugby Dave Penberthy.

"The experience he's got will help our back line enormously."

Cooper joins Pirates team-mate Rhodri McAtee at the Recreation Ground following his loan move last week.
