Cornish Pirates have signed Bath academy duo Richard Lane and Will Horner on dual-registration deals.

Lane, 21, who can play at wing and full-back, has made nine appearances for Bath in the Amlin and LV= Cups.

Scrum-half Horner, 18, has played for England at Under-16 and Under-18 level as well as in the Premiership A League.

The pair will both be available for the Pirates' upcoming British & Irish Cup matches as they prepare to face Doncaster and Cross Keys.

"With the number of long-term injuries we've picked up we are grateful to Bath Rugby in dual registering these two lads," said Pirates director of rugby Ian Davies.

"Richard was going to be with us last season but paperwork held it up. We look forward to them both adding quality to our squad."
