Cornwall Handed Home Mayfield Challenge Cup Tie
January 12, 2023
Cornwall RLFC have been handed a home tie in the 2023 Betfred Challenge Cup.
The Choughs, who enter rugby league’s most prestigious knock out tournament for the very first time this year, will play National Conference League side Rochdale Mayfield.
The Lancashire outfit will travel to the Duchy over the weekend of February 25/26 with an exact date and kick-off time to be revealed in due course.
Cornwall hooker Jake Lloyd, along with head of media and communications Gareth Davies and head of commercial and development Rob Butland were present at Wembley for the draw.
Lloyd, resplendent in Cornwall’s brand-new home shirt, which was unveiled this week alongside new title partners Sharp’s Brewery, took part in a pre-draw photoshoot with St Helens star Eboni Partington. All three members of club personnel were present for both the men’s and women’s draws.
Conducted by Tanya Arnold, the teams were drawn by Partington and England star, Kai Pearce-Paul, who was raised in the capital.
