Historic day for Cornwall RLFC

The sport’s newest side enjoyed a big crowd, but fell short in a battle of the expansionists with a 60-14 score against Midlands Hurricanes.
Defeated, but proud.

World Cup hopeful Dom Young injury
Newcastle Knights winger Dom Young left the field with injury during their clash with Manly Sea Eagles in the NRL earlier this week.
The World Cup hopeful injured his knee attempting to score a try in the first half of the clash on Thursday. He picked up the injury sliding over for what could have been the first try of the night. He was assessed by the trainer before being taken from the field.
Dom Young off with a right knee injury, to go for scans. Mechanism likely from knee into turf as he was scoring try, best case contusion/cork but concern there for PCL injury pic.twitter.com/kU6ztIQtQq

Jai Field magic
It was another impressive performance from Wigan full-back Jai Field in their 36-6 Challenge Cup victory over Wakefield. The 24-year-old leads the way on the Man of Steel leaderboard in Super League with 15 points and he impressed in the cup competition, scoring a hat-trick at Belle Vue.
Matt Peet’s side will face St Helens in the semi-finals at Leeds United’s Elland Road.
