Cornwall 31, Kent 34
The county’s first-ever victory on Cornish soil, see Kent Senior men into the Bill Beaumont Division 1 County Championships Final at Twickenham on Sunday 28th where they will face Lancashire.
We are delighted to have made the County final and look forward to playing against Lancashire at Twickenham with relish. It will be a great experience for everyone involved with the squad. To have travelled to the reigning champions Cornwall and beaten them in their own backyard is a massively significant achievement for Kent. I don’t think we have ever won away to Cornwall. It is an endorsement of what we have been developing within our County. With our women winning 2 from 3 this season the under 20s making the national final last year and unbeaten this year Kent Rugby is in a healthy position. The committee and coaches are pushing in the same direction. We have an excellent crop of players in the seniors coached well by young coaches in Tom Stradwick David Marshall and Mike Melford the players are loving the positive environment and enjoying their rugby. Sunday will be a great day and we will relish the experience – Taff GWilliam, Director Of Senior Representative Rugby
