Your News British & Irish Cup Round 2 review

Home advantage counted for little in the second batch of midweek British & Irish Cup ties with four of the six games resulting in away wins. Cornish Pirates

followed up their 50- point hammering of Bristol with another comprehensive win: 38-0 at cross- Tamar rivals Plymouth Albion. The 2010 cup winners head

Pool 1 by a point from Moseley who recorded a superb 14-10 victory at Championship high- flyers Bristol. Neither Bristol or Plymouth have won a game yet,

which is good news for the two other teams in Pool 2 Cross Keys and Munster A who have yet to start their campaigns.

Bedford edged an entertaining game at London Welsh, coming away from Old Deer Park with a 33-30 win to make it two wins from two for the Blues. London

Scottish are at the bottom of Pool 3 after losing 43-10 at injury- hit Esher, who are now level on points with London Welsh at the top of Pool 4.

Nottingham withstood a late onslaught from Rotherham to leave Clifton Lane with the points. Tom Calladines sin- binning saw the Titans reduce a 16- point

gap to a two- point advantage, however a late penalty from the impressive James Stokes meant the Green & Whites were able to hang on for a 22-17 victory.

Rotherham sit at the bottom of Pool 5 which is topped by south Yorkshire rivals Doncaster after the Knights achieved a league and cup double over Leeds

Carnegie. Leeds are now four points off Pool 6 pace- setters Nottingham.
