Cornwall's rugby teams do the derby.

Redruth and the Cornish All Blacks face off at the Recreation Ground on Saturday.

Launceston will be looking for their first win of the season, after losing to Chinnor in their opener.

Redruth are hoping for a second victory, after beating Taunton.

The Reds are coming off a winning start to the season.

Head Coach Adrian Edwards admits it will not be easy. He said: "Launceston will try and stop that every step of the way, but get the crowd behind us, we're at home, we've got a decent team out and so have they. Hopefully we'll have a good game of rugby. Obviously for me and my team, we hope the result goes our way and I'm sure that's what Launceston are saying as well."

Launceston captain Tom Rawlings is branding the clash as the 'biggest match in the club's history'. He said: "It's something we sort of pride ourselves on in Cornwall, this derby match. There's been plenty of encounters that I've been involved in, in previous years so, yeah it's going to be a big challenge. All the boys are looking forward it. Yeah, we're relishing the opportunity to get the shirt back on after last weekend and go out and perform really."

The Cornish Pirates are also doing the derby.

Our guys welcome Plymouth Albion on Sunday afternoon, after victory over Jersey last week.

Even with the home crowd, back-row Kyle Marriott is not expecting an easy ride: "I had three years at Plymouth and I know from both sides now how important this is for both teams. Plymouth are a good side and they always offer a really tough opposition for us and the Devon Cornwall divide adds that extra bit of spice."
