DARREN Pellow lit up proceedings for the Cornish Rebels on Saturday as his five tries helped smash Plymouth Titans 76-20.

The result has cemented the Rebels' place in the South West Premier League Play-offs with a game on Sunday against Devon Sharks at Redruth the only thing standing in the way of the Grand Final on August 16.

In their last league match of the regular season, the Cornishmen knew victory at Stonehouse Creek would see them progress to the play-offs and wanted to set the tone early on.

Debutant Tom Cowan-Dickie, who's brother Luke is currently part of the England rugby union playing set-up ahead of the World Cup, provided a perfect start with two tries in the opening five minutes.

Confidence grew amongst the Rebels and scores kept coming in for them as hooker Pellow put in an impressive display with his five dot downs.

Jack Scott and Nathan Allen bagged braces, with the latter's tries both coming from breaks through the Titans defence.

Tries were also grabbed by Sam Rhodes, Al McNab, Jamie Prisk and Sam Bristow.

Plymouth took a while to find their feet on home turf and were able to score through Scott Williams just before half time.

After the break, Kieran Horrall ran over the whitewash twice while Nick Antcliffe also dotted down, but the damage was already done for the hosts.
