Cornwall face another tough County Cup clash.

Our boys pulled off a great victory over Gloucester last week.

Now Kent are the opponents and they have a score to settle.

But head coach Dave Thomas is not phased: "We go with pretty well the same squad of players to Kent. They know that if they can get a win up there we go into the third game knowing that it's playing for Twickenham really.

"Once you lose the first game it is really an uphill struggle and they know that if they lose on Saturday they could well be in a relegation fight so they're going to come out with all guns blazing."
