According to Twitter a resounding win marred by a potentially serious injury to Tom Cowan Dickie. Any updates from Penzance based viewers? Fingers crossed itís not as bad as feared.

A very indifferent first 30 minutes when we gifted Hartpury a couple of easy scores. Thankfully we cut out the number of unforced errors and reduced the penalty count to go in ahead at the interval. The 2nd half was a much improved performance and we won with a bit to spare. A couple of sublime tries by Kyle Moyle and another superb individual effort from Alex O'Meara were the highlights of the game.
On twitter there is an update saying that Tom Cowan-Dickie after all precautions had been taken was up and walking around shortly after the game.

The main differences between first and second half were that we cut down the penalty count and handling errors. There was some excellent running and handling with some lovely skills, especially Rory Parata who can get the ball through his hands at amazing speed when a defender is right in his face. Xavier looks more assured with every game at 10, and his distribution and goal kicking were top notch - just missed touch with a couple of penalties which were the only blips in a very good performance. We need to do that again at Hartpury next week and hopefully give LI a real battle at The Mennaye. Then there'll be a big game at Goldington Road. Am I the only one actually getting quite excited about this competition?
