CORNWALL can claim another rugby success with the news that Worcester Warriors flanker Matt Kvesic has been called in to England's Six Nations training squad.

The 20-year-old's mother Julie (nee Kaczmarek) was born and brought up in Cornwall and is the sister of Cornwall Council cabinet member Mark Kaczmarek, from Lanner.

Matt gets his chance to push for his first full England cap, following an injury to England's current reserve number seven, Tom Johnson, of Exeter Chiefs.

Matt has already been capped at England under 20 level and is now targeting selection for England's first match in the 2013 campaign, which is against Scotland.

He made his debut for Worcester Warriors in 2011, and with his contract due to end, is currently considering offers from Bath, Gloucester and Exeter.
