Redruth back Sam Parsons has praised his team-mates after their 38-15 win over Canterbury in National Two South.

It was the Reds' biggest win of the season as they ran in six tries to go seventh in the league.

"We've been so close to getting this sort of result so many times and it finally came," said Parsons.

"It's been a long time coming for this group of players and we knew we had it in us and it came today," he added to BBC Radio Cornwall.

Redruth had lost their previous three games by seven points or less and head coach Steve Larkins says the way his side stopped that losing streak was impressive.

"We went out and attacked it from minute one soaked up some early pressure and that gave us opportunities to attack," said Larkins.

"When we attacked them on the break they couldn't handle the pressure we put them under and the pace we played at.

"Some of the tries we scored were out of the top drawer and we've said if we play our patterns and get the ball wide we'll do some damage and we did that."
