There were defeats for two of the three sides in the patch in the Tribute Western Counties West League on the weekend. Falmouth Eagles failed to make it two wins in a row after their 31-27 win over Chard the week previously as they were defeated 74-13 by runaway league leaders Wadebridge Camels.

Wadebridge have won all 18 of their league games this season which sees them 18 points clear at the top of the table. Nial Davies-Hale scored Falmouth’s only try with usual kicker Tom Spiller notching the rest of the points. The Eagles, who are 13th are away to 10th place Wiveliscombe this weekend.

Penryn also succumbed to a heavy defeat as they were hit 55-14 by Newton Abbot on Saturday for what was their second defeat in a row as they remain ninth in the table. They face Truro next week in a local derby between the sides.

Truro will go into that game beaming with confidence after securing a 74-7 win over bottom-placed Honiton who have not won a game so far this season. The win maintains Truro’s grip on third place in the table, they lead Chard by four points, but trail second-placed Burnham-on-Sea by six points.

The Cornish Pirates four match winning streak came to an end as they were held to a 24-24 draw to Richmond. The travelling Pirates netted three points for the draw, which does see them drop to fourth in the RFU Championship table as Jersey overtake them to third in the table.

The top four in the table is proving to be a closely contested battle, with just five points separating first from fourth place.

The Pirates will be expecting to return to winning ways when they play bottom place London Scottish at home in their next game on Saturday February 12. 

Redruth put in a commanding display to beat Henley 43-21. The win proved to be vital with title rivals Clifton not playing it meant that the Reds escalate up to second in the National League Two South table.

Cornwall U20’s tore apart their Dorset and Wiltshire oppositon 64-7 in the Jason Leonard Cup. The win means Cornwall have won their group and will have a home tie for the quarter final to be played on March 20 at a venue to be confirmed.
