With the final weekend of fixtures approaching in the Bill Beaumont Men's County Championship, it is all to play for in the race to Twickenham. 

Cornwall on track  

Cornwall look set for a spot in the Division 1 final, where a win would see them secure their third title in three years. First though, they play Hertfordshire this Saturday, 20 May at Canborne RFC. 

Both sides are unbeaten in Division 1 South, but it is Cornwall who top the table, thanks to two bonus-point wins. 

Hertfordshire ran in eight tries, seven in the first hour, to overwhelm Gloucestershire last weekend, winning 46-19. 

Cornwall will also enter Saturday's match high on confidence, after winning their derby match against Devon 56-11 last weekend. 

Should Cornwall qualify they will face either Yorkshire or Lancashire in the final, both of who have won their first two games. 

Lancashire head into the final weekend of pool fixtures in pole position having recorded two bonus-point wins but face a tough ask away to last year’s finalists Cheshire at Sale FC. 

Winner-takes-all

The final weekend of pool fixtures in Division Two is set to be a thriller with several sides in both groups still able to reach Twickenham. 

The fixture of the weekend is likely to be at Oakham RFC where Pool 1 leaders Durham take on Leicestershire. 

With both sides equal on 10 points, whoever wins will secure their place at Twickenham. 

In Pool 2, all four sides could still technically qualify for the final going into the final weekend. 

Hampshire and Somerset are the most likely candidates to go through but should Warwickshire and North Midlands secure bonus-point wins then it will come down to points difference. 

Sussex book their place 

In Division Three, Sussex booked their place at Twickenham after beating Berkshire 19-13 at Reading RFC last weekend.

They could face one of three sides from Pool 1 in the final. Essex’s thrilling 30-29 win over Oxfordshire means a win over Buckinghamshire will be enough to win the group. 

However both Oxfordshire and Bucks are still in with a chance. Bucks’ 30-10 win over Notts, Lincs and Derby gives them plenty of momentum heading into the final round.
