Cornish Pirates duo sign with Gloucester

Cornish Pirates duo sign with Gloucester

With no word on when the threatened Championship will begin (if it begins at all), the Premiership clubs have been browsing the lower leagues in search of short-term talent.

Gloucester’s most recent development has been the acquisition of two Cornish Pirates players in preparation for their Round 1 clash with Leicester in the 2020-21 Premiership on 21 November.

The duo are fullback Kyle Moyle and prop Jay Tyack.

Gloucester issued the following statement:

“Kyle Moyle, 27, is a product of Penzance and Newlyn’s youth section, playing with the likes of Luke Cowan-Dickie and Jack Nowell during his development. Moyle has been in a mainstay in the Pirates side since making his debut in 2012.

“Impressing mainly from full-back, Moyle is also more than capable on the wing too, playing over 130 games for the Pirates. His scintillating running earned him a spot in the Championship Dream Team.

“Jay Tyack, 24, a loosehead prop by trade, is highly regarded by the Pirates. His career began with Truro, with Jay going on to represent Cornwall, and England at age-grade level. 

“Tyack has also aided his development with a period in National One with Birmingham Moseley, as well as playing in New Zealand in 2015. Both Jay and Kyle have joined up with the squad with immediate effect.”
