Worcester Warriors took one step towards the Aviva Premiership with a 21-12 away win over Cornish Pirates in the Championship final play-off first leg in Penzance.

More than 600 Worcester fans made the trip to Cornwall to see their side take a nine-point lead into the second leg at Sixways next Wednesday.

The only tries of the game came in the first half as the Warriors led 18-6 at the break but the Pirates kept battling away in the second half and took it two penalties to one.
