Rugby: Cornwall vs Hertfordshire

Published by the Pirate FM News Team at 7:01am 18th May 2013

Cornwall fight to reach the County Championship final for the first time in twelve years.

They are up against current champions Hertfordshire at Camborne on Saturday afternoon.

A win would book our place in the title decider at Twickenham.

Coach Dave Thomas wants to do it for Trelawney's Army: "It'll be a massive boost to Cornish rugby, to the Cornish clubs to have their players on the national stage and above all to the real band of supporters who've followed us around for our two matches so far.

"We narrowly lost to them last year so they come to Cornwall as the reigning champions. They won't want to relinquish that easily. They're coming with all guns blazing, they'll want to go back again and retain their Championship."
