Under 20s turn up heat in second half

Cornwall U.20, 48 – 7 Camborne School of Mines

Report by Terry Williams

Cornwall U20’s started off their 23/24 County Championship season with a fine win in a warm up game over the Camborne School of Mines XV, running out 48 – 7 winners. A large crowd of over 300 watched from the clubhouse touchline. The first half was scoreless, with both teams appearing to be nervous and the game was error strewn throughout. The Cornwall players seemed to be trying to force the game, which was the primary cause of the errors. Both teams had opportunities to cross the line, but both defences proved resolute.

Head coach Ritchie Kevern must have said something to fire the players up as the second half producing a much improved performance with the team scoring 8 tries, 4 of which were converted. A spirited CSM XV never gave up and their efforts were rewarded in the 74 minute with a converted try. They were well supported by a vociferous group of fellow students..

All the substitutes were used so the coaches had a good look at players and all are looking forward to the next warm up game v Cornwall Clubs at St Austell. There was a lot to take in from last night’s performance; a negative first half but a vastly improved second half.  Four of the CSM XV are eligible for the County U20’s, so the coaches were able to cast their eyes over 29 players last night.
