Camborne’s Tribute South West One West game at Clevedon today came to bizarre and premature end when the match was abandoned after 20 minutes when one of the posts fell down and could not be repaired, with the home side leading 6-0.

The match is now likely to be replayed on Saturday February 22 when the Cherry and Whites were due to take on Penryn in the semi-finals of the Cornwall Cup.

But it was not all bad for Camborne, as other results went their way, with Cornish promotion rivals St Austell suffering a surprise 20-18 home defeat against Thornbury to a last gasp penalty and the Hornets being beaten for the first time in 11 games when they suffered a shock 27-15 loss at Chard.

Leaders Cleve went six points clear at the top with an 18-13 home win over Cullompton, but fifth-placed Camborne are well placed with games in hand for a promotion challenge and will be hoping some of their long term injury victims soon become available.

Next Saturday Camborne are at Bideford.
