Cornish Rebels RLFC and Saltash Essayons RLFC played their South West Mens League fixture today, and in doing so became the first participants in the first ever Cornish Rugby League Derby. An extremely close encounter at Camborne’s Recreation Ground finished Cornish Rebels 44 – 32 Saltash Essayons.

Saltash looked extremely organised, and their healthy numbers at training is testament to the fantastic setup at Saltash RFC, of which the Essayons is an extension to give younger and fringe players a solid pre-season and a change to hone some new skills.

The two sides will meet again in two weeks time in the South West Cup Final at Launceston!
