Three of Cornwall’s County Championship squad have been selected for England Counties tour to Romania the week after the Bill Beaumont Cup final.

Two of the players are from the Cornish All Blacks.

Lock Ben Hilton who has been a regular in the Counties side for several seasons and who played in the games earlier in the year against Scottish Clubs at Fylde and France Fédérale and Périgueux, both of which were won.

It’s a first call up for scrum-half Matt Shepherd who has had a tremendous campaign in the county colours, a very much deserved recognition.

Prop Craig Williams is the latest Redruth player to earn selection for the Counties side, very fitting recognition for a very fine player.
