It is derby day in the Tribute Western Counties West Division as Falmouth RFC host Penryn RFC at the Recreation Ground. 

The teams

The old cliche says form goes out the window for derby days and Falmouth will be hoping that this omen bears true. The Eagles are struggling to get up to speed this season, with only two victories so far this season, one on the opening day to Tiverton and a defeat of bottom-placed Honiton at the end of October.

The below par performances have seen Falmouth slip to second-bottom of the Tribute Western Counties League with just 11 points on the board so far. They will be hoping a home advantage and crowd can steer them to a derby victory.

Penryn are celebrating their 150th year as a club and are steadily ticking along in the league after a solid start when they won their opening two matches.

In their last local derby, earlier in the season they defeated Truro 35-22 at the Memorial Ground, they will be hoping to perform the same magic today, a win could take them as high as sixth depending on results elsewhere. A defeat however, would make it three losses on the trot for Penryn.
