Rugby Preview: Cornwall RFU u20s vs Berkshire RFU u20s

By Chris Jones

Cornwall RFU Under 20s will start their County Championship campaign against Berkshire REC Under 20s on the 5th of February at Camborne.

The Black and Golds will be hoping to get their own back on Berkshire after losing last time around 19-7 in the 2015-16 County Championship.

The young side will also be aiming to replicate the form of the senior side last season, who went onto defend their title at Twickenham.

Team coach Mike Rawlins said: “We have 40 guys there, each one could step into a squad and hopefully we have the chance to go to Twickenham.”

Will Glider, one of the six St Austell players named in the squad for Sunday, has been named captain of the side, and will be hoping to lead his team to their first competitive victory of 2017.

The side have already logged their first victory in a friendly against Devon u20 which ended 30-19 and will hope to take the confidence from that game into Sunday’s enticing fixture.
