A product of Penzance & Newlyn RFC's youth section, Kyle Moyle, has been signed by the Cornish Pirates.

A full-back/fly-half, the Cornwall U20s 'Player of the Year' in 2011-12 has been a star for them again this season. Described by coach Tom Rawlings as “a wonderful talent”, he pulled the strings and scored 24 points in the team's recent 69-0 demolition of Somerset.

The young try-scoring machine, who has been playing for St. Ives in the Cornwall & Devon league this season, has also previously played for the Pirates Amateurs and the Cornish All Blacks who he will now be rejoining on loan for the start of the New Year.

Commenting on the latest acquisition to their squad, Cornish Pirates head coach Ian Davies said:

“Kyle has been training with us for the last three weeks and has impressed not only with his work ethic but also his willingness to learn.

"He has obviously got natural talent and the aim now is for us to develop his conditioning and rugby know-how to a level where he can challenge for a shirt.

"Kyle is another local player who, in co-operation with their club, is being given the opportunity to experience professional rugby.”

Moyle is set to join up with the Pirates squad for their trip to Swansea in the British and Irish Cup.

The Pirates ran out 27-9 winners against the All Whites at the Mennaye last weekend.
