Cornwall go into this vital must win Bill Beaumont Southern Group relegation decider against Kent this Saturday with yet another changed side.
Injuries and unavailability sees Aaron Penberthy don the 15 shirt with veteran Ian Morgan once again answering Cornwall’s call in the fly-half berth. Shaun Hawkey starts at scrum-half in place of the injured Nick Simmons. Steve Parsons is again available and replaces Tim McBride at centre from last week’s side, teaming up once more with the impressive Steve Johns from Plymouth Albion.
A change in the front row as Peter Joyce is unavailable due to family matters so Craig Williams (St. Ives) steps up from the bench whilst Cornwall U.20 player Penryn’s Matt Williams covers the prop position.
Despite an injury scare Ben Hilton is fit to play in the second row, teaming up once more with Josh Lord, whilst cover is in the form of former Pirate Lee Soper and the impressive young Redruth lock Chris Bailey.
Tom Rawlings back from suspension teams up with his brother Mike at flanker with former team mate Sam Hocking at No.8.
Last season’s TASC U.20 player of the year Adam Lewarne get a place on the bench for his first championship call up.
CORNWALL NEEDS BIG SUPPORT ON SATURDAY, hopefully Cornish exiles in the home counties can get down to Canterbury to cheer the boys on in this vital match. UP CORNWALL!!
