Not sure Cov had to be any better. They only played against 14 men for an hour! Was unable to watch but the penalty count sounded madly uneven! And 3 yellow cards to none seems unusually one sided.

Well played the Pirates, but remember Saracens only have to be in the top 2.

The Cornish Pirates scrum was exceptional.

Ambition should be made of sterner stuff.

Agree with Bluesman 11, why would you collapse a maul when you’d come through the middle, got on the ball and going forwards, surely it would have been our scrum at worse. Hey ho, such are the vagaries of rugby, and we did give far too many penalties away, butchered 3 or 4 clear cut opportunities trying for a miracle pass, roll on next week.

Brilliant result for Pirates, just brilliant, well played, and Bedford are above Sarries in the league too 😂😂😂

Give us P........Give us an I...........Give us an Arrrrrrrrrr🍺🍺🍺

Neither team deserved to win the Bedford Coventry game. I actually think Coventry deserved to win it less as they really only got into our 22 twice and didn’t make a line break all game. Bedford knock on over the line and countless penalties ultimately cost us, although deciding penalty was v dubious.
Good for you.

In awe of that Pirates performance and with only one preseason game in the last 12 months. Many congratulations from west London. Just imagine what a night in the clubhouse that would have been if supporters were allowed!

More importantly though, this is one more nail in the stupid ring fencing debate. Up the Pirates!

As a very old Pirate (60+ years supporting the club) that is up there with the best performance I've seen. So sad we couldn't be there, but so proud today.

So you should be. What a fantastic result for Pirates. That’s got to be the biggest upset in this division for years, if not ever. Just looked and 7 of the Saracens team that started in the European semi-final last year started against CP today. In total there were 12 players from the matchday 23 against Racing that were involved in the game today. This notion that Sarries had a weak team is garbage. Pirates should get all the credit in the world.

Don't forget, all you Bedford fans complaining about the 3 yellow cards, Bluesman's comment about the one five minutes before half time - very lucky it wasn't a red.

For a tackle that was a turn head down and drop on his head, Bedford are very lucky not to have lost a player for 35 minutes red, and a few weeks ban too.


The next yellow may have been a little harsh, but I have a strong feeling that may have been the hapless Hamish Smales trying to make up for his previous error.
