Redruth Rugby crestCornwall is correctly recognised as a rugby hotbed and Redruth RFC are right at the heart of the county.

Quite simply, red hot.

The Reds play at the Recreation Ground and I grew up making regular visits there with my father and family friends.

The ground boasts the famous Hellfire Corner and as a youngster I can recall standing with thousands of fellow rugby fans cheering on Cornwall at the Rec.

Redruth play in National Two South with director of rugby Adrian Edwards at the helm.

The Reds boast an informative website and scorching up-to-date twitter account maintained by Ross Tucknott.
