REBELS player-coach Jonny Platt said he will be making notes tomorrow when his side face Exeter Centurions in the league ahead of their cup final showdown.

The two teams will face each other in Devon for a South West Premier League tie just two weeks before they will bump into each other again in the South West Challenge Cup Final.

Platt's side made it into the final for the second year in a row after a thumping 58-24 victory over Plymouth Titans in their semi-final clash at The Rec in Redruth on Sunday.

Ten tries were scored by the Cornishmen with braces from Matthew Shepherd and Grant Thirlby along with touchdowns for Kye Beasley, Martyn Lawrence, James Martin, Darren Pellow, Matt Williams and Scott Murray.

Ahead of tomorrow's clash, Platt said he was in buoyant mood and believes his team will retain the cup.

Platt said: “We are probably going to change some of the players around in the run-up to the final as we have had quite a few injuries to start the season.

“But we go into Saturday with a good chance to test out Exeter before we play them in the final and hopefully we'll turn them over and then do the same again for the final.

“For me as a Cornishman to get behind the only rugby league team in the county is great and I'm so proud to be the head coach and a player.

“We are going the right way at the moment and I am looking forward to winning and lifting that trophy again.”
