CORNISH Pirates bosses have unveiled six players returning to the club on top of three new faces.

Max Bodilly, Matt Bolwell, Joel Conlon, Kieran Davies, Tom Hendrickson and Will Carrick Smith are coming back to the Greene King IPA Championship side on a dual registration or loan basis from Premiership side Exeter Chiefs having played at Mennaye Field last season.

Along with them, hooker Jack Innard, fly-half Laurence May, and scrum-half Stuart Townsend are also joining the ranks at the Pirates on dual registration from the Chiefs.

Director of rugby Ian Davies said: "The DRs will add to the youthful energy we have in the squad this season.

"The lads returning know what we are about and I've seen the new boys in Chiefs colours last season so know they will fit right in."
