Camborne 49, Hornets 7

Camborne gave an excellent exhibition of running rugby at the Rec to rack up a magnificent seventh straight win under returning Director of Rugby Liam Chapple.

In excellent conditions with a strong wind blowing down the pitch ‘Town’ rounded off their home campaign in style, climbing to fifth spot in the South West Premier table as a result.

The Cherry & Whites ran in five unconverted first-half tries to see off the challenge of relegated Hornets who to their credit contested with great spirit throughout.

Ben Tyler-Guy was first over for the home side on eight minutes and before the end of the opening quarter the full back had completed a brace to make it 15-0, after wing Sam Newman had grabbed his first try for the club.

The visitors were moving the ball at every opportunity and their endeavours brought a deserved try at the posts from livewire scrum-half Sean Disney. Fly-half Jordan Humphris knocked over the regulation conversion.

Camborne were not to be denied and bagged their bonus point with a corner score from hard-working lock Kieran Westlake before the strong running Tyler-Guy completed a well-taken hat-trick for 25-7 at the break.

Almost from the second half resumption home lock Damien Cook powered over and David Mankee’s conversion took his team out of sight.

On the hour fly-half Mankee dummied and drifted over, followed soon after by centre Rhodri Mcatee who rounded off a slick handling move to dot down.

Trailing 42-7, Hornets continued to have their chances to cut the deficit but eventually it was the Cherry & Whites who bagged a ninth try of the afternoon when outstanding No 8 James Goldsworthy drove over. Centre Jake Champion’s conversion wrapped up an emphatic victory.
