Kieran Hallett is one of three players to sign new deals with Cornish Pirates

Three members of the Cornish Pirates squad, including fly-half Kieran Hallett, have committed themselves to the club for next season.

Hallett, 29, has been the Championship side's top points scorer for each of the past three seasons.

Promising players Laurence May, also a stand-off, and prop Tyler Gendall, both aged 20, have also signed new deals.

"Kieran is a guy on top of the Championship outside-half tree," said director of rugby Ian Davies.

"Laurence and Tyler are both rewarded for cracking first seasons with us. All three have made significant contributions this season and I look forward to further helping them achieve their rugby ambitions."

May, who has been dual-registered with Exeter Chiefs during much of this season, has also played at full-back.

Gendall, a member of the club's Player Development Foundation, made a major impression early this season before suffering a knee injury. He is expected back to full fitness for the start of the 2015-16 campaign.
