County Championship 2019





Cornwall Senior XV Championship season

The CRFU selectors, coaches Graham Dawe and Marek Churcher, as well as team manager Chris Fuca have met and selected a squad of players to attend the team building event, hosted by Marc Bishop, at St Austell Tribute Brewery.

Chris Fuca will be contacting players and their club coaches inviting them to the event scheduled for Friday 22nd February, starting at 7.00 p.m. so that everyone knows the season plan, dates and details. This starts the process of getting the team ready for the Tamar Cup in April and then the Bill Beaumont County Championship games scheduled for May when Cornwall are away to Kent on 4th May, home at Redruth against Herts on 11th May and then away to Devon on the 18th of May.

Chairman of selectors, Terry Carter, is pleased with the work of the selectors who have visited all our clubs and identified players who have the calibre to play for the County. He added,‘ now it’s down to the players to deliver the results we expect, play with commitment and passion for the black and gold and make Cornwall supporters proud of their team’.

Cornwall U.20 Fixtures 2019

The Cornwall Under 20 squad preparation for their 2019 Jason Leonard Cup campaign is now well under way.

The squad have already played one warm up game in December against Cornwall Fire Services with another due to take place on Wednesday 23rd January against Culdrose at Hayle RFC kick-off 7:30 pm.

Thirty five players attended the training session on Sunday 13th January and this includes players from 11 clubs and 3 Universities. There is a good attitude about the squad coached by Josh Lord and Richie Kevern with many of the players experienced at this level ensuring new players settle in and are ready.

Team manager, Colin Hatch, expects another stern test for the players and is sure that this will stand them in good stead when they start their Jason Leonard Championship against Devon on February 3rd at St Austell with a kick off scheduled for 1.30pm.

The fixture at St Austell also launches the CRFU Charity ‘Cry for Tom’ for this season. St Austell have kindly allowed a bucket collection which will help reach the target for the charity in 2019 which will benefit all young players in our county.

Cornwall Team to Face Hertfordshire Plus LIVE Video Link Here

With injuries and the unavailability of players the selectors have been forced to make several changes to the squad to travel to Bishop’s Stortford for the third round of the Bill Beaumont County Championship (Division One South) on Saturday 19th May.

The boys will be playing for pride as the hopes of a sixth consecutive Twickenham appearance were thwarted by the single point defeat by Devon last week and Tier One participation for the next two years is already guaranteed.

The pressure will be on Hertfordshire who still have the chance of getting to Twickenham but who will have to overcome twenty-two players in black & gold who will be keen to show that they should not be taken lightly.

Kick Off is at 3.00 p.m. and the whole game can be watched live here (thanks to Dave Burrows):

Don’t forget Radio Cornwall will also be giving full match commentary with John Martin and Dave Jenkins.
