Launceston 'buzzing' after Lydney victory


Launceston captain Tom Rawlings says his side are 'buzzing' after their second successive win in National Two South as they beat Lydney 22-20.

Kieron Lewitt's last-minute penalty sealed the win for the Cornish All Blacks after a tight match.

Two Lewis Paterson tries and one for Aaron Struminski had seen Launceston go 19-6 up with 27 minutes to go.

But tries for Timothy Longton and Nicholas Selway put the home side a point in front before Lewitt's kick.

"Lots of people are buzzing," Rawlings told BBC Radio Cornwall.

"We know it was was ugly, we know we've got loads to work on and loads to improve on for Hartpury next week."

It was the first time this season that Launceston have recorded back-to-back wins and sees them move up to 10th in the National Two South table.

"It feels like there's definitely been a change now. We won ugly, last week was pretty, I think a lot of the games are going to get ugly from here on in," Rawlings added.

"We showed what we're capable of and we can change our game plan to meet the weather and the way other teams play."
