Cornwall Under 20s to face Hampshire

 

 

RFU UNDER 20 COUNTY CHAMPIONSHIP 2019

 The Jason Leonard Cup.

Cornwall Rugby Football Union (CRFU) Under 20 County Championship campaign 2019 moves to the second pool game in the Jason Leonard Cup. Cornwall will play Hampshire at a new venue of Havant RFC on the 3G pitch with a 1330 kick off time on Sunday February 24.

CRFU President Peter James said “This is the first away game for the squad this season and follows on from their win against Devon in the opening round of the competition. Hampshire always provide strong opposition and I am sure this match will be no different”

The game kicks off at 1330 at Havant RFC after concerns from the hosts about the original venue of Overton RFC. Hampshire’s first pool game was delayed a week due to the weather.  

 

Coach Rich Kevern said – “The guys got off to a winning start against Devon, but this will be a different test away from home and playing on an artificial surface. We have kept a pretty settled side with only a couple of changes due to availability of players and, tactically. Harry Lightfoot starts at 6 and our captain Torin is back fit and fills the number 8 shirt. Another starter from last year James Tucker comes onto the bench along with Cain Worley and Luke Barnes who are covering the front row and youngster Charlie Levick gets a start on the wing”

Cornwall Captain Torin Clarke said; - “It is great to back in the shirt and honoured to be captaining the side again after the first game. We had a hard fought game against Devon that went down to the wire. I was immensely proud of the guys who stuck to the game plan right up to the final minute, which saw us come through with a victory.”

The final pool game will again be hosted by St Austell RFC on Sunday 17 March where the opponents will be Gloucestershire.

 

The Cornwall U20 team manager Colin Hatch said; -”At the last home game 13 new ties were presented to guys on playing their first match for the Cornwall U20. In addition Reuben Edwards, Dan Goldsmith, Jake Penprase, Connor Gilbert and Harry Lightfoot were awarded the first ever CRFU U20 caps for making 7 Championship appearances. This is a fantastic achievement for the guys and shows their commitment to the U20 team over 2 and in Reuben’s case 3 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.
