The squad will prepare on Sunday for the game, before the coach ride to the Stadium.

Many thanks to Warren’s Bakery who have kindly provided the squad with pasties for the trip up, also to Tribute Brewery and Kelsal Steele who have sponsored a range of O’Neills leisure wear so that the squad will look “proper” at HQ.

Sunday morning sees the Family coach set off from Hayle RFC at 7 am and they will meet up with the Trelawny’s Army coaches and others from the duchy along with our “exiles” to greet the team as they arrive at Twickenham at around 3:45 pm to sea of black and gold.     

For those early arrivals at Twickenham head to the Cabbage Patch for 12-noon, where choirmaster Stu Hoy will lead the singing of the Cornish. Pasties will be available.

For those unable to travel to Twickenham, there will be full match coverage by BBC Radio Cornwall, with Dick Straughan and John Martin your commentators.

It is expected and hoped that ERTV will provide match footage of the game. See the RFU site for updates.
