CORNWALL SKIPPER HILTON ISSUES CALL TO FANS

Just two league matches involving Cornish Clubs on the final Saturday of the league season, both in National League 2 South.

The Cornish All Blacks had the satisfaction of defeating the league winners Old Albanians 19-18.

It was Richard Bright who got the All Blacks’ try with Kieron Lewitt’s boot kicking the other points.

For Redruth a difficult finale up at Shelford with a few regulars missing for DoR Dave Penberthy’s final game in charge. A final score of 37-24 saw them finish in 6th place. Tom Duncan, Chris Fuca and Tom Notman got Redruth’s tries with Brett Rule kicking the other points.

Reds finished a point ahead of their local rivals Launceston who were 7th.

All eyes now turn to Redruth on Saturday when Cornwall will be looking to get their Bill Beaumont Cup campaign off to a great start when they take on Gloucestershire.

The Cornwall squad will be bouyed following their Tamar Cup win over Devon last Tuesday evening.

Skipper Ben Hilton has issued a call to the black and gold faithful. He said. “I urge all Cornwall doubters that have decided not to come to matches over the last couple of years to please come back, bring your children with you and have a family day out at Redruth.

“Launceston and Redruth have been through the mill over the last couple of years so let’s show the RFU how passionate we are about rugby down here.

“Games against Gloucestershire have been tough in the past, but hopefully this year will be our year.

“We will give it our best shot, so please come and support us and make Redruth a tough place for other teams to come to.”
