Year 9 Rugby v Plymouth College (Home) – National Cup

Due to an unfortunate injury to a Plymouth College student, this match was abandoned in the second half and is due to be replayed after half term. We wish the Plymouth College student the very best during his recovery.

The match itself saw both teams perform very well, with Plymouth College playing some lovely rugby, demonstrating some great passing. Penryn then grew into the game and started to build some momentum just before the injury.

A big thank you to Plymouth College for visiting us.
