Born in Argentina of Italian descent, Alberto di Bernardo was almost unknown when Jim McKay signed him from L’Aquilar in Italy even though whilst he was there he had played for the Italian A Team.

He was with the Pirates for only a single season but his goal kicking exploits had soon become legendary and, following another outstanding display at Twickenham in the EDF Final, it was no surprise that he was snapped up to play in the Premiership.

He joined Leeds who had been ushered out of the competition during the winter by Alberto’s nerveless marksmanship  at a freezing Headingley. 

Despite his short sojourn in Cornwall he is remembered affectionately by all fans of the Cornish Pirates.
