St Ives RFC thrown out of Cornwall Cup

Comments (1)

St Ives RFC have revealed that they have been thrown out of the Cornwall Cup after the failure of all parties to find a new date for their delayed semi-final against Wadebridge Camels.
This means the final, at Penryn on Easter Saturday, March 30, will be contested between two teams who received walkovers in their semi-finals - the Camels and Camborne, whose opponents Bude cried off last week.
Last Saturday's Wadebridge v St Ives semi-final was postponed because the Camels' Molesworth Field pitch was waterlogged. The Cornwall RFU then ordered the teams to play the tie on the Sunday, but St Ives said no.
Earlier this week it was announced that both clubs had agreed to play at a neutral ground, St Austell's Tregorrick Park, next Tuesday March 26, but it has since been discovered that Tregorrick Park is unavailable.
When it was suggested that the match could be played at St Ives, it is understood that Wadebridge turned down that option, and no other neutral venue could be found to stage the semi-final.

    Not very "grown up" is it? And what about all the lesser clubs who paid their dues in this competition, taking it seriously at each stage? I think a disrepute charge should be considered.
