Cornish Pirates beat Doncaster 36-25 to register rare Yorkshire win

Doncaster v Cornish Pirates
Cornish Pirates had taken two bonus points in their previous three losses

Cornish Pirates coach Gavin Cattle was pleased to have seen his side win at Doncaster for just the second time since 2011 after a 36-25 win.

Toby May, Tom Duncan and skipper Chris Morgan scored tries for the Pirates as they moved up into sixth place in the Championship, a point off their hosts.

"I'm really pleased with how they stuck to it," Cattle told BBC Radio Cornwall.

"We've been up here on the wrong end of a result here lots of times, so it's another good building block."

Doncaster outscored the Pirates by four tries to three, but six Laurence May penalties ensured they ended a three-game losing streak.

"I'm really pleased with how we stayed disciplined in defence, we didn't give them many easy outs," added Cattle.

"There were a couple of learning moments in terms of game management where I felt we could have been a lot more comfortable, but overall I'm very pleased to come to Doncaster and win."
