St Ives captain, Ben Taylor and second row, Todd Prisk, have had a busy few days. After helping to secure promotion for The Hakes through the defeat of Plymstock Albion Oaks last Saturday, the two forwards were again taking the field. On Tuesday evening they represented Cornwall in this year’s Tamar Cup. Cornwall were convincing winners by 45 points to 10 on a cold night more usual in the depths of winter. Congratulations to both players.

George Sanders and Luke Alatt, who play for the Colts, have been selected for the Truro College Rugby team to attend the Sanix World Championships which are being held in Japan. They are playing other colleges from around the world such as New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, Japan Russia and Fiji.

St Ives 64 v 3 Plymstock Albion Oaks


In their final game of the season last Saturday at Alexandra Road the St Ives 1st team squad welcomed Devon side Plymstock Albion Oaks. With only a point needed to secure promotion head coach, Paul Thirlby, named a familiarly strong line up for the game, which was expected to be a tough encounter following Plymstock’s strong performance against league champions Bude last weekend.


From the start it was evident...

Who would have believed it? A full report of yesterday's match against Plymstock will follow in a few days. By now, all readers will have known for a while that St Ives won and gained promotion.


But who would have thought that it would turn out to be as easy as it was, the home side delivering their second biggest win of the season.  Their biggest win, 69:6 was inflicted upon local rivals Hayle. Yesterday they travelled to Newquay Hornets and wer...

St Ives is able to field a virtual full strength side for tomorrow’s all important clash against Plymstock Albion Oaks.  The Devon side are the final hurdle in the Cornishmen’s bid to bounce straight back into the Western Counties league.  A point from four tries or not losing by more than seven points will suffice. However, this is no way to cross the finish line. St Ives will be totally committed to continuing their form of five straight wins,...

Exeter Saracens 0:50 St Ives Hakes



St Ives was forced to make several changes from the side that defeated Withycombe last week.  Ever present Ben Jenkins was unavailable, which brought Ben Wheeler into the front row. Luke Collins was unable to play so Louis Stevens began at second row.  In the backs, John Trewhella took over at scrum half for the veteran’s seventh appearance.  Bobby Conroy-Smith moved into the centre for Tom Nicholas who was on...

St Ives 37 v 14 Withycombe


Last Saturday in glorious springtime sunshine St Ives welcomed third placed Cornwall & Devon league side Withycombe to Alexandra Road. Head coach Paul Thirlby was able to name a strong side for the top of the table clash.  Luke Collins came back into the second row, Grant Thirlby returned from suspension and Bobby Conroy-Smith resumed his position on the right wing.

There will be any number of followers and supporters of The Hakes that are trying to calculate how close we are to promotion. A number of variables can be taken into account. However, the basic answer is two fixtures away. If we win both we will be there. Our players would not wish to tail off the season with a poor finish in our last home game.


St Ives’ remaining fixtures are Exeter Saracens away and Plymstock Albion Oaks at home.


South West com...

Denis Stevens


It is with sadness and affection that the rugby club remembers the former captain of the early 1960s. Denis was known for his end of season charity matches where a whole team of Steven’s would play. A tough, no nonsense, flanker, he was an abrasive tackler, sometimes, even if you didn’t have the ball, due to fading eyesight.


A ‘Ted Brown’, Denis ‘Ally’ was also a long serving fire fighter with the Cornwall Fire Service at St Ives....
