Cornish Pirates have signed utility back Will Cargill from Championship rivals Yorkshire Carnegie.

The 26-year-old has also played for England Students and captained Leeds Beckett to victory in the national university competition at Twickenham.

Cargill, who can play full-back or fly-half, will arrive for next season.

"I'm sure his strong work ethic will see him become an important member of the squad," Pirates head coach Ian Davies told the club website.external-link

"Will has achieved a great deal of success this season in winning the BUCS (British Universities & Colleges Sport) competition and being named BUCS player of the year."

Cargill did not make a first-team appearance for Yorkshire Carnegie, but was a member of their senior academy side.

The Pirates finished eighth in English rugby's second tier this season, two places below the Leeds-based club.
