From the local press:
"The Cornwall captain says he wants to turn Twickenham black and gold.
Ben Hilton has been speaking after the Duchy side secured a place in the finals of the County Championship, after beating Hertfordshire at the weekend.
Cornwall will take on Lancashire - the side that beat us last season - on Sunday 1st June.
RFU President Ken Plummer said "A superb advert for Cornish rugby, the boys played with heart and passion in front of a mainly Cornish crowd in Hertfordshire. Now we travel to Twickenham next weekend where I want revenge. Revenge for the game I played and lost in, and revenge for our defeat last season, both against Lancashire. Boys go and play your hearts out in one of the best stadiums in the world for rugby, many dream, but few ever have the opportunity to play there"
Cornwall coach Graham Dawe said “Identity is a massive thing, and they love to get behind a sporting team like big cities do.
“The whole of Cornwall get behind this team, and that brings pressure. We all feel that and so do the players, but people like Ben Hilton and Damien Cook are incredibly good rugby players who have never really hit the heights of the domestic game.”
Dawe will have been delighted with the display of his forwards, which provided the platform for victory over Hertfordshire in some dreadful weather conditions. “The guys played really well,” said Dawe.
The Cornwall team now travel to Twickenham for the final against Lancashire on Sunday with a 12.15 kick off.
