The Cornish Pirates can officially confirm the name of prop Will Norton as their first player who will be dual registered with Exeter Chiefs this season.

Exeter-born Will, aged 26, has previously played for Exmouth, Cardiff Met RFC, and for Plymouth Albion.

Delighted to welcome Will, Cornish Pirates’ coach Alan Paver said: “Our relationship with Exeter Chiefs has worked extremely well for both clubs over the years and Will is another young man who is hungry on his rugby journey.

“Already fitting in fantastically well it is exciting for us and we are looking forward to seeing what he’s got as part of his development to become the player he wants to be.”
