South West teams get tough draws

EDF National Trophy

The two South West sides left in rugby union's National Trophy have been handed tough draws for the fifth round.

Cornish Pirates face a trip to National One's third-placed side Nottingham, having been beaten 23-19 by them at Meadow Lane 10 days ago.

Exeter Chiefs have a home tie at Sandy Park against fifth-placed Bedford Blues, a side they beat on the same weekend as Pirates' loss at Nottingham.

The fifth round ties are set to be played on Saturday, 7 February.

The Chiefs have reached the last two finals, losing both of them. They lost the 2008 final to Northampton and were beaten by the Cornish Pirates in 2007.
