A Matt Shepherd conversion with the final kick of the game gave Cornwall the Bill Beaumont Cup in a tight final against Cheshire.

Cornwall led 7-0 at half-time thanks to an Alex Ducker try converted by Fraser Honey.

Playing the whole of the second half with just fourteen men following a red card to Jack Oulton, Cornwall withstood Cheshire pressure until finally cracking to an unconverted try.

Cheshire then went on to score a second try, this time converted and looked to be heading for the win.

However, Cornwall’s never-say-die attitude was rewarded at the end when Seti Raumakita cut a great line to score and tie the scores, leaving Shepherd to add the coup de grace.
