Former Cornish Pirates utility-back Rhodri McAtee has joined Plymouth Albion after being released by the Mennaye Field club a week ago.
McAtee played his final game for the Pirates as a second half replacement in the RFU Championship final at Oxford and after weeks of speculation linking him with a move to Redruth, has opted to stay in the Championship at Albion.
The 27 year-old signed for the Pirates from Worcester Warriors in August 2004 and played much of that first season as a scrum-half before switching to the wing.
He went on to make almost 200 appearances for the Pirates and earned international honours for his native Wales at Under-21 level. McAtee was also a World Cup winner with the Wales 7`s squad in Dubai during 2009.
Speaking ahead of McAtee joining his new club for pre-season training this week Plymouth Albion coach Nat Saumi described his new signing as "a good player" who will offer "plenty of Championship experience" at Brickfields.
