Falmouth Rugby and Penryn RFC both had winning starts to the new season giving both sides plenty to look forward to.

Their campaigns in the Counties One Tribute Western West both kicked off last Saturday (3 September).

Despite finishing bottom of the league last season the Eagles were feeling hopeful after a positive pre-season. Those at the club were proven right as they started with an 18 - 14 win over newly promoted Tavistock.

Penryn had a solid season last year with a seventh-place finish but their director of rugby, Marek Churcher, was still excited to see how the team had progressed from last season.

The Borough was given a tough opening fixture, facing a side that finished two places above them last year. However, the team pulled together for a 25 - 19 victory.
