TOMMY Phillips has said he would love to get the chance to help Cornwall reach another Twickenham final today.

The Redruth looshead prop who grew up in Helston has been named among the replacements for the County Championship clash with Hertfordshire, kick-off 3pm, at The Rec.

Whoever wins the battle will represent the South in the final at the iconic stadium in London on May 31.

Ahead of the game, Phillips said: “Being involved in the Cornish set up means a lot to me and I am very, very keen to get some game time and play for the county.

“It is my first time playing for Cornwall and it does feel special, but it means a lot more to the older guys who have been here before.

“I would love to help them along way and also play at Twickenham for the first time in my career.”

He went onto say training with more experience players under a coach like former England international Graham Dawe has been great.

“I’ve taken a lot from the older boys,” Phillips said.

“I have also taken a lot from Graham too and it is all benefiting me as a player.”
