There was a reduced fixture list all round on the weekend as many rugby teams were out of action.

In the Tribute Western Counties League Penryn RFC are currently playing catch up after having games postponed for covid, weather as well as having a match abandoned due to an injury this season.

They took on and defeated Paignton 36-22 to seal their first win in five matches. They have still played the fewest out of anyone in the division with 18 fixtures completed so far.

The win moves Penryn up to tenth and they are tied with ninth-placed Bideford on 42 points who they face in their next match away from home. Bideford were demolished 59-8 by Kingsbridge in their last match.

Other fixtures in the next game week of the Western Counties League see Falmouth Eagles host Kingsbridge. Should the Eagles win it will be the first time all season they have won back to back games.

Truro RFC who are third in the table are at home to Tiverton, they are looking to bounce back from their 39-17 defeat to Teignmouth in their last outing.

The Cornish Pirates moved up to second in the RFU Championship as they beat Jersey Reds 21-17.

The Mennaye Side are unbeaten at home so far this season and continued that record thanks to two tries from Tom Channon and one from Tom Kessel with Arwell Robson notching three conversions to seal a much-needed win.

The Pirates trail leaders Doncaster Knights by just four points but crucially have two games in hand on the table-toppers. The Knights are the next opponents for the Cornish with the away trip taking place Saturday, March 12.

There was no match for Camborne in the South West Premier, they host Hornets in their next game on Saturday, March 5.

Redruth RFC slipped to second in the National League Two South table after losing 32-12 to third-placed Esher.

They trail leaders Clifton by one point but the win for Esher means just two points separate them from Redruth in the table. The loss put an end to Redruth's six-match unbeaten streak, they are next in action to Guernsey on Saturday, March 5.
