Focus on Rugby in Cornwall

A well pleased Stewart Whitworth at 'HQ' on 23rd May 1999

The top tier of English rugby's County Championship has been renamed to honour one of the greatest players to have risen through its ranks. It's format has changed over the last year so that Tier 1 will be divided into 2 groups of 6, North and South. Each group is then split into 2 pools of 3, playing all 3 teams in the opposite pool. Each team will have two home matches one season, and one the following season. The top county in the North will play the top county in the South in the Final.

Tiers 2 and 3 will be divided into 2 pools of 4 counties in each tier. The top 2 counties in each tier will play in a final. The County Championship has been somewhat eclipsed by the era of professional rugby, but there are still hundreds of players who turn out for their county hoping to lift the Bill Beaumont Cup.
