Truro College two wins from final

Rugby

Truro College are two wins away from a final at Twickenham after beating RGS High Wycombe 31-13 to reach the last eight of the Daily Mail Under-18 cup.

They led by 23 points after 20 minutes as they cruised to a famous away win.

"This is the furthest the college has ever gone in a national competition," captain Jack Andrew told BBC Cornwall.

"We're in the quarter-finals from 500 schools that entered the competition, so it's a great achievement to get to the last eight."

He added: "The team, the coaches and everyone in the college has put in hard work. They're there every training session, they're committed and the hard work has paid off."

The college had England Under-18s reserve Tom Cowan-Dickie in their side but were missing England Under-20s and Mounts Bay star Josh Matavesi, who has a broken collarbone.
