The Cornish Rebels rugby league team have beaten Devon Sharks in a close encounter by 28:26, to become the South West champions. After scoring a try late in the game, the visitors to Polson Bridge at Launceston should have converted to force extra time. Increduously, the kick was missed and referee Peter Clarke, blew for time shortly after the restart. Heartbreak for Devon, but joy for Cornwall.
