CORNWALL RFU UNDER 20 COUNTY CHAMPIONSHIP 2019

 

The Jason Leonard Cup

 

Cornwall Rugby Football Union (CRFU) Under 20 County Championship campaign 2019 gets underway with their first fixture in the Jason Leonard Cup. Cornwall host neighbours Devon in the first pool game of this season on Sunday February 3 at St Austell RFC with a 1330 kick off time.

 

CRFU President Peter James said, “It is great to get this year’s campaign off with a home tie against our neighbours Devon, who won promotion to the Jason Leonard Cup last season. We thank all our sponsors and St Austell RFC for their support in hosting this group of players in this important game representing Cornwall”

 

The game kicks off at 1330 at Tregorrick Park, home of St Austell RFC with entry of £5, including a programme, for adults and Under 16’s gaining free entry.

 

Coach Josh Lord said –“This will be a good test for this new set of young players and the experienced guys remaining from last season. Although we have had 2 warm up games we are in a different ball game now that the Championship is underway”

 

 Cornwall Captain Jack Hodge said; - “It is an honour to be asked to captain the side for this first game against Devon. I know the guys are up for a tough game as always but have trained well in preparation for the game”

 

Cornwall‘s second pool game will be away to Hampshire at Overton RFC with a 1300 kick off on Sunday February 24. The final pool game will again be hosted by St Austell RFC on Sunday 17 March where the opponents will be Gloucestershire.

 

The CRFU Representative Rugby Chair, Chris Lea said; -”The vagaries of U20 rugby mean we can lose up to 50% of our squad every year through age qualification. There are a number of these guys who will be around for the next 2 seasons and we are always on the lookout at new talent who can come into the squad and join them over the coming seasons”

 

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.
