Camelford RFC – 10 Years Old!

Congratulations to Camelford RFC who will be celebrating their 10th Anniversary this season. A real success story thanks to the hard work of a group of dedicated volunteers who have built a club which embraces the true values of our game.

The first of many celebrations will be on Saturday 8th September when they entertain St Just in a cup game when a new shirt will be unveiled.

On Sunday 28th April their season will culminate in a President’s Day at Lane End.

Ashes Off To Twickenham

Saltash 31 v Old Cranleighans 15

Congratulations to Saltash who scored 24 unanswered points in a rousing second half performance to overcome a strong Old Cranleighans side who brought good support with them from Surrey to help swell an excellent crowd at Moorlands Lane on 31st March.

The reward for the Ashes is an appearance at Twickenham in the RFU Senior Vase Final on Sunday 6th May when they will meet Wath Upon Dearne RUFC who play in Yorkshire Division Two.

Good luck to the Cornish boys who we hope will bring the Vase home to the right side of the Tamar!


Tribute Cornwall Leagues One and Two - 2018/19

A meeting of the CRFU Clubs was held on Tuesday 27th March at Camborne RFC to discuss perceived problems in the RFU lower leagues. All clubs in the Cornwall-Devon League and Cornwall One and Two were invited and the meeting was chaired by the senior member of the CRFU Management Board, David Martin, who is not a member of a club in the County. Over 30 delegates attended representing 17 clubs.

A fair exchange of views was had and a number of queries were answered by Mike Gee, the Secretary of the South West Competitions Committee. The on-going problem of match cancellations due to clubs being unable to raise a team was discussed and agreed this is a club problem. The weather at this time has been a major problem and is causing the season to be prolonged even further.

It was obvious the majority supported the proposed move in Season 2018-19 for the league structure to return to Cornwall One, with probably 8 clubs, and Cornwall Two, probably 7, playing each other home and away. This would leave room for cup games at the start of the season, leading to the National Cup Competitions, and ending with Cornwall Cup Competitions in April. Dates have yet to be finalised, but it would ensure that all clubs have at least 20 meaningful games.
