Cornish Pirates have signed England Counties Under-20's prop Tommy Phillips to their Player Development Foundation.

Last season Phillips played for Redruth in National Two South.

"We feel Tommy is another Cornish youngster with a big future ahead of him," said Cornish Pirates director of rugby Ian Davies.

"Having had a strong showing last season in National Two the basic rugby foundations are in place and it is now just a case of layering conditioning, game understanding and playing with a greater intensity on top to aid Tommy in pushing on in the professional game."
