Coaches – Mike Rawlings, Bryn Jenkins, Matt Shepherd

Team Manager - Chris Lea

 

Cornwall Rugby Football Union (CRFU) Under 20 County Championship campaign 2017 begins on Sunday 5 February.

 

Following a trial session before Christmas, the Under 20 squad have trained for a number of weeks. In preparation for the Championship they played a friendly against Devon U20 at Launceston RFC on the 22 January winning 33 – 19. Their first game in the Championship this year will against Berkshire at Camborne RFC, with a 2 pm kick off.

 

CRFU President Peter James said “This is the first game at this level for some of the team and they start with a tough game trying to avenge last year’s defeat. I want to thank the coaching team of, Mike Rawlings, Bryn Jenkins, and Matt Shepherd. Also we must not forget the medics, backroom staff and team manager Chris Lea for their work in pulling together the team. I also offer my congratulations to Will Gilder of St Austell RFC who has been appointed the captain for the coming season” He went on to say “I would also like to thank, Kelsall Steele Investment Services Limited for their continued sponsorship of U20 section, along with Booth Printers our programme sponsors”.

 

Newly appointed captain Will Gilder said; - I am honoured to have been asked to captain the Cornwall U20 team this season. Pulling on the shirt means an awful lot to us guys and being made captain is the icing on the cake. Berkshire are a side that beat us last year and we know they will come down  here with a strong squad so we need to be on top of our game for 80 minutes, to come away with a result.

 

Will gilder plays his club rugby for St Austell RFC, and is in his second season with the U20.

 

Cornwall faces 2 other games in the group stage during February and March, depending on results, with the quarterfinals being played at the end of March. 

Coach Mike Rawlings said; - “There have been a lot of changes in the squad from last year and we have a number of guys who will be with us for a further 1 or 2 seasons, and it will be a steep learning curve at this new level. It is testament to the guys who have trained on Sunday mornings; it is never easy after games for their own clubs on the Saturday. They have trained hard and know they face a difficult task, but they will be extremely proud to pull on the famous black and gold shirt of Cornwall. ”

Cornwall also face Gloucestershire on Sunday 26 February at Redruth RFC, before a final pool stage game away against newly promoted Hampshire at Overton RFC on Sunday 19 March 2017.

 

CRFU Chair Denis Preece said “This is the first opportunity for some of these players to represent Cornwall at senior level. A number of the players, who have gone before them, have gone on to represent the full County 15 and some have played at Twickenham!! Last season Tommy Phillips through his performances with Cornwall was selected not only for the England Counties U20 squad but was made vice-captain. I would ask that the good folk of Cornwall come out and support the young Cornwall players”

Cornwall Under 20 team manager Chris Lea said; - “This squad is a mixture of players from last season, new players nominated from clubs and guys who have progressed through the Under 18 age group. We have had fantastic numbers coming forward this season and it is testament to the ground work we have put in over the past 5 years. It is great to see these guys getting progression through the County system and a number of former players are now playing at Premiership and Championship level, as well as clubs within Cornwall”

There will be marketing and sponsorship opportunities with the Under 20’s team and matches, any individuals or companies that may be interested are asked to contact Colin Hatch in the first instance.

Cornwall Rugby Football Union (CRFU) Under 20 County Championship campaign 2016 continues on Sunday 13 March with their first home game against local rivals Devon.

 

Cornwall have suffered two defeats in their two games and this is a must win, to avoid relegation in the competition.

 

CRFU President Ken Plummer said “This will be another test for these young guys; both Cornwall and Devon have lost their opening games and the loser of this game will be relegated.  Having watched them at Redingensians and Cinderford I know they have the spirit and ability to put in a good performance and get a result!”

 

For both Cornwall and Devon this is the last game in this season’s championship as neither side can qualify for the quarterfinals.

 

Coach Bryn Jenkin said – “The result against Gloucestershire was disappointing, where we made some silly mistakes, missed a few tackles and they rightly took advantage. On the day they deserved the win and will fight it out with Berkshire as to who has the home quarter final.”

 

Cornwall‘s final pool stage game will at home against Devon on Sunday 13 March 2016, at Camborne RFC with a 1400 kick off time.

 

Coach Mike Rawlings said; - “We had the better of them for the first and the last 10 minutes, but lost the game in the other 60 minutes. We have suffered greatly with injuries this season and unfortunately we lost both of last week’s starting props with Tommy Phillips picking up a hand injury and Curtis Reynolds picking up a shoulder injury.”

CRFU Chair Denis Preece said; - “These young guys will have a home game on Sunday and we hope that they will get a lot of support to lift their spirts and hopefully see a win.”

The U20 team manager Chris Lea said; -”It is real shame after reaching the semi-finals last season to be in a relegation battle this season. That is the vagaries of U20 rugby when we lose up to 50% of our squad every year through age qualification. There are a number of these guys who will be around next season and we will be looking at new talent who can come into the squad next season.”

 

 

There will be marketing and sponsorship opportunities with the Under 20’s team and matches, any individuals or companies that may be interested are asked to contact Colin Hatch in the first instance.

Following the first game defeat away to last year’s beaten finalist Berkshire, the Cornwall team have had a further two training sessions.

 

CRFU President Ken Plummer said “This will be another test for these young guys; playing Gloucestershire in the forest of Dean is never an easy game.  Having watched them at Redingensians I know they have the spirit and ability to put in a good performance and get a result!”

 

Cornwall face 1 further game in the pool stage, against local rivals Devon on Sunday March 13.

 

Coach Bryn Jenkin said – “The result against Berkshire was disappointing, however they are made up with a lot of University guys who have been able to play 4 warn up games. However on the day they deserved the win and showed why they reached the final last year.”

 

Cornwall‘s final pool stage game will at home against Devon on Sunday 13 March 2016, at Camborne RFC with a 1400 kick off time.

 

Coach Mike Rawlings said; - “We must learn from the last game, Berkshire caught us cold and scored twice in the first 15 minutes which put us on catch up all the game. Once we got over that initial setback we matched them for the rest of the game eventually losing 19 – 7. We have the skills within this squad to put in another good performance at Cinderford and I know the guys will be up for the challenge.”

CRFU Chair Denis Preece said “The guys played with pride and passion in Berkshire to wear the famous Black and Gold Jersey. They came up a little bit short on the day but will be full of determination against Gloucestershire.”

 

There will be marketing and sponsorship opportunities with the Under 20’s team and matches, any individuals or companies that may be interested are asked to contact Colin Hatch in the first instance.
