Camborne are hoping to secure their seventh Cornwall Cup with victory over Wadebridge in Saturday's final at the Memorial Ground (4.30pm)

Unbeaten in nine outings and well placed for a stab at promotion this season, the Cherry and Whites go into the game as favourites despite having not played a sinlge game in their route to the final after Truro and Bude pulled out.

Both sides have beaten each other at home already this season, with Wadebridge winning 21-17 at Molesworth Field, and Camborne running out 17-3 victors at the Recreation Ground.

Wadebridge have already tasted cup final defeat at the hands of Camborne when they lost the 2011 final 16-13 at Redruth, and the Camels go into the final on the back of a heavy defeat away at Cullompton - their third league loss in a row.

To add to their woes, Wadebridge have an extensive injury list which sees several key players ruled out. In contrast Camborne will have a full squad to choose from.

The game is preceded by the Tribute Cornwall Club's Cup final between Veor and Stithians, also at the Memorial Ground. That match kicks off at 2.15pm.

Veor have already won the league, and will be going fro the double against a Stithians side they have already beaten in all three of their league outings this season.
