It is the biggest match in Cornwall's rugby calendar.

Redruth and Launceston are meeting at Polson Bridge this weekend.

The Reds came out on top when the League Two Sides met earlier this season.

They are coming off a winning streak, with four victories on the trot.

But Director of Rugby Dave Penberthy says playing away from home will be tough: "We're pretty well prepared at the moment. There's a lot of pride at stake, certainly for them at home. They'll want to avenge their defeat at Clifton last week. You know, it makes for a great, great encounter. I just hope that the weather holds out and the game is able to go ahead.

"Winning four games on the bounce with maximum points has been hugely encouraging. But you know, we know that form counts for nothing when we get to these sorts of games. It's going to be a huge task going up there. We've never won there in the league, so we're well aware of the challenges."

Launceston are looking to bounce back from disappointment in the League against Clifton last weekend.

Tom Rawlings is captain of the Cornish All Blacks.

He says, "It helps when you're at home. It helps when you're on home turf. You've got your own changing rooms, you know your own environment that you're in and they've got to travel up the A30 to us. Yep, it's going to be a big battle for us, we are at home but we've got to come out flying and ensure we get into the game early doors.

"We need to get points from this game and we need to come away with a win to ensure we finish December on a high note, going into Christmas and then into the New Year. So, a very big battle and we're all looking forward to it up at the club. We're really excited and it's going to be a good day."
