Comments (0)

The fixtures for the 2013-14 domestic rugby season for Cornish teams outside of the National Leagues have been released by the RFU throwing up a tasty local derby as a season opener in South West 1 West.

Camborne, who narrowly missed out on promotion to the National Leagues last season, will face Wadebridge Camels at the Recreation Ground on September 7th. The Cherry & Whites won comfortably when the two teams last met in the Cornwall Cup Final and travel to Bridgwater & Albion before rounding off the opening month against Bideford and Cullompton.

The Camels also face Cullompton at home in their second game but then feature in the next Cornish derby when they travel to Tregorrick to take on league new boys St.Austell on October 19th.

The Saints kick-off life after promotion at North Petherton and host Camborne on November 2nd. They will conclude their league campaign back at North Petherton on April 12th on the same day that the Camels have their re-match with Camborne.

In Western Counties West there is another all Cornwall affair to open the season with Penryn taking on St.Ives. Bude are at home to Burnham-on-Sea whilst Truro travel to Ivybridge..

In the Cornwall & Devon League there are home games to start with for Newquay Hornets, Pirates Amateurs, Hayle and Veor whilst Saltash have the short trip to Old Plymouthian & Mannamedian. Falmouth do not begin their season until September 14th at Crediton.

In the pick of the games in Cornwall 1 Helston host Bodmin and St.Agnes face Camborne SoM, and in Cornwall 2 there are home games for Illogan Park, Lankelley-Fowey and Redruth Albany.

Full details of the fixture lists for all the local leagues can be found online here.
