During the weekend when the Cornwall rugby community had plenty to enjoy the U15s completed their season with a festival at Camborne prior to the Crawshay’s game against the Senior XV.
120 boys were mixed into 8 teams to play a number of short 12 a side games before playing 15 a side games. The spirit, attitude and importantly the skills on show demonstrated the progress this age group have made this season after missing out on game time due to Covid. It appears that the boys’ experiences have been good with clubs, schools and Monday night Satellite centres that have provided for this talented group.
Throughout the season families and friends have supported the young players ensuring that they can access the events and activities. This was very apparent as the numbers on the touchline cheering added to the festival atmosphere.
During the summer the next stages for young player development will be added to the CRFU website to ensure the good continuity and progress that is in place. The players were reminded that in the Senior XV on Saturday and in the U20 County team there are many examples of players who did not make the selections at U15 and U16 but were now wearing the ‘Black and Gold’. It is the CRFU’s intention to provide good opportunities to stay in the game and enjoy their rugby experiences for all players.
