Roseland Battle Hard

Roseland 3 – Liskard-Looe 63

On Saturday afternoon Roseland welcomed Liskard Looe to Philleigh for the first home game of the 2017/18 season.

Roseland had a long list of players unavailable via injury and other commitments. Nearly as many were unavailable as were available. The squad of players that took to the field put in a 110% shift though and unfortunately the score line didn’t really do the players justice.

Saturday afternoon saw the return of junior rugby to the playing fields of Cornwall. Roselands first task was a trip to the Newquay Sports Centre to play last seasons Cornwall One Runners Up Newquay. The format for this season was the same as last year with all the teams playing each other once before splitting into Cornwall One and Two after Christmas.

And you thought the rugby was over for the season – we’re entering Bolingey’s Vets Day

Former Captain Nathan Chapman has taken it upon himself to organise entering a Roseland RFC team for Bolingey Barbarians Round Robin Veterans Day.

Would be great to get lots of supporters there to cheer on the Roseland Vets!
PLUS – would you like to play?
In this case ‘Veteran’ means over 32, and Nathan’s keen to have a nice large squad for the afternoon’s matches.

What a final!

As our usual match reporter was unable to attend today I’m afraid it falls to me to report on today’s cup final.

I’m not great at recalling the details, so I apologise for any inaccuracies, and if the try scorers would like their names added – I’d be happy to do that. Just let me know.

However, I can hopefully convey the overall feel of the afternoon.

In one word it was WET.

It’s been a rainy day in Bodmin.

Which made conditions pretty slippy, although not muddy.

And made for a compelling and hard-fought final.

The ascendancy switched back and forth between Roseland and Helston. A scenario which came as a shock to everyone involved – not least because the majority of the Roseland team were on tour this weekend, and several were spotted still in the pub last night!!

To say they looked a bit peaky pre-match would be an understatement.

However, like true Roseland players once the whistle went they dug in, and both attacked and defended supremely well. Scoring 2 tries to Helston’s one in the first quarter.

After that the scoring slowed a bit, but the game continued to bat backwards and forwards.

With 10 minutes to go we were in the lead – 18-19 after Davo converted a penalty.

But unfortunately Helston came back and scored again leaving the final score 21-19.

It was a cracking game to watch, and those spectators who braved the weather, the car park, and the traffic (to whom we are really grateful for their support) thoroughly enjoyed the match, and loudly applauded the team off the pitch.

Also thanks to Shaun Eamers who stepped in to the role of coach and Physio.

It was a strong (if ultimately disappointing) game to end the season.

I hope everyone enjoys their coming weeks off – and look forward to welcoming everyone back to the club on July 4th when summer training starts at Philleigh (and the AGM afterwards!).

In the meantime look out for the Lions Tour competition – coming soon.
