Cornwall's rugby skipper says he will play the county championships for family and fans.

Ben Hilton has been speaking to Pirate FM ahead of the team's trip to Twickenham.

The Duchy side take on Lancashire for the second year in a row on Sunday.

They are hoping to banish memories of last year's heartbreak.

Ben said: "They said they pray to god that Cornwall will make it, because it feels like you're playing a world cup final in front of twenty thousand screaming Cornish fans.

"They have played other finals where they have had just a few thousand.

"I'm sure we'll eclipse last year with the support that will go up this year because there seems to be quite a buzz around.

"Every time you put the shirt on you feel a bit of pressure. Your performance matters not only for you, but also for your family and the supporters that have come to watch - because it's quite a fanatical game."
