Recent news confirms that Cornwall-born Cornish Pirates hooker Sam Matavesi has been selected in the Fiji squad (the Flying Fijians) along with his utility back brother Josh, who plays for Newcastle Falcons. Also, for England, wing Jack Nowell and hooker Luke Cowan-Dickie have been selected – both products of our Penzance & Newlyn RFC youth section.
