Camborne 5, Bracknell 0

Camborne got back to winning ways with a superb exhibition of disciplined defence to hold out for a deserved victory in atrocious conditions at the Recreation Ground on Saturday.

Once again the home forwards responded with a committed and spirited display against much heavier opponents to lay the platform for a narrow win.

With first use of the elements and slope on an afternoon when chances were to be few and far between the Cherry & Whites prevailed courtesy of the solitary score of the game midway through the half.

The decisive intervention came when man of the match scrum half Taron Peacock darted clear from a quick tap penalty to take play to the visiting goal line.

From there the home side went patiently through the phases before working an opportunity for young winger Ben Tyler-Guy to show his strength in going over for a corner try.

As the interval neared, Camborne had the opportunity to increase their advantage but fly half Murray Westren saw his well struck 30 metre penalty attempt strike a post.

Inevitably Bracknell were soon on the attack after the resumption with the home tacklers doing well to keep former Tongan international No 8 Chris Hala’ufia shackled.

Bracknell’s young replacement fly half endured a kicking display to forget in the tricky conditions as he saw three penalty shots in quick succession giving the opportunity to cut the deficit fail to find the target.

With big tackles going in across the field the Cherry & Whites comfortably held firm in the final quarter despite the deteriorating conditions to send the visitors on their long trip back to Berkshire with only the consolation of a losing bonus point.

Camborne: try, Tyler-Guy.
