The latest episode of Canterbury’s Rugby Towns takes us to Penryn RFC. A club founded by clergy, destined to dance with Lions.

The town may be known for its historic pirates and for single-handedly facing off against Spanish ships, but if you talk to the locals long enough, it’s not long before the conversation turns to rugby.

It’s a rugby town—there’s no question of that.” Club President, Tim Nicholls tells us. The pride at being the first rugby club in Cornwall is evident from the cries of, “Up the borough!” from the sidelines when their team takes to the field.

No louder are these cries than when Penryn take on one of their local rivals. We had the pleasure of watching them face off against Cornish neighbours Redruth in a… ‘friendly’. While three divisions may separate the two clubs in the modern era, the hunger displayed on the field for local bragging rights proved that a proud legacy has not stopped the club from dreaming of future success.
