HEADLINE FIXTURES ANNOUNCED FOR 2017
We are thrilled to welcome the Royal Navy and the Royal Air Force to Cornwall for two historic matches at Camborne this summer in what will be our fifth season as a club.
As well as these two headline fixtures, we welcome South West newcomers Teignbridge Trojans on 17th June, and we will play the reverse leg at Newton Abbot RFC on 15th July. We have been very impressed with the off-field efforts of the Trojans and can’t wait to see them take to the field in the summer.
We will also play a double header fixture against old foes Devon Sharks, for the newly commissioned Tamar Shield on July 29th (away) and August 5th (home).
South West 9’s Series
The South West Rugby League has morphed into a development stage, and as such we will play a series of 9’s festivals around Devon & Cornwall to encourage new players, teams and coaches to try Rugby League for the first time. The festivals are open age (16+) and if anyone would like to speak about entering a team, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our home games this year will be played at Camborne Rugby Club, who having hosted our schools festivals and many teacher training events are looking forward to bringing the first Cornish 9”s festival in three years to the Recreation Ground.
We can also confirm that we will be putting a Rebels team into the Jacob Maloy Osteosarcoma Trust 7’s event at the club on Saturday May 13th. This event for a fantastic cause will see us crossing codes as a one-off in a bid to raise much needed funds for the Trust and to support Camborne RFC with their event.
Head Coach Michael Abbott will soon be confirming open age training plans where players are welcome to attend regardless of experience.
More fixture information will be available as pre-season progresses, and we hope to see many of you on the touchline this summer cheering on the boys in the new-look format.
We would like to say a huge thank you to our principal sponsors Greenmount Carpets, along with the other club sponsors Newquay Kitchens, Sharps Brewery and Whirlwind Sports for their ongoing and unwavering support. Here’s to a fantastic year!
