Cornwall face a tough start to their county cup campaign.

Our boys are at Gloucester, knowing their opponents will be gunning to prove a point after narrowly avoiding relegation last season.

Their other group matches are with Kent and Hertfordshire.

Coach Dave Thomas says it is not going to be easy:

"It's probably going to be our hardest lot of fixtures that we've had for a number of seasons. Kent were relegated two years ago, they're recruiting big time and we've got them away as well. The last game at Camborne we've got Hertfordshire who are the County Champions. They obviously want to keep that title again this season.

"We are, I would say, two or three players short who would have normally have been in the starting 15, but the 22 players who are going away with Cornwall are the best that we can field and I know that they're going to give everything that they've got.

"The boys are going to give 110%"
