This season the Cornwall RFU have entered into an agreement with sports suppliers O’Neills to supply playing strip for the next three years. TASC Merchandise Secretary, Marina Trevarton, was at Polson Bridge and was able to meet O’Neills business manager, Cornishman, Peter Kennedy who has held several key coaching roles in English Rugby, including England Ladies Head Coach 1999-2002.

There was also a mark of respect paid to Trelawny’s Army by the CRFU at Saturday’s game. The Development XV wearing O’Neills strip included a Trelawny’s Army branding on the shorts, so it is right to say that we are right behind the team this year.

The game was an excellent workout for players from both sides with the Cornwall XV winning 36-18 played in good spirit and energy. Coach Graham Dawe was full of praise for his young players after the game and it will be interesting to see who will come forward in the future to play for the senior squad.
