- Cornwall overcome Cheshire 14-12 to win Bill Beaumont County Championship Division One final
Yorkshire and Cornwall were crowned winners of the women's and men's county championship finals respectively at Twickenham on Sunday as the Division One finals were hosted either side of the Barbarians double header.
Yorkshire defend title
Sussex full back Courtney Treco got her side off to the perfect start inside the opening 10 minutes with six points from the boot to give them an early lead.
And the Richmond speedster extended that lead after 22 minutes when Sussex spread the ball wide to Treco who flew down the wing to touch down in the corner. She wasn't able to convert the try but an 11-0 lead gave Yorkshire plenty of work to do.
Yorkshire captain Tilly Churm put her side back in the game with the second row powering over from several metres out. Fly half Grace White added the extras.
Jessica Roberts put Yorkshire ahead for the first time with half an hour gone when the scrum half spotted a gap around the fringes of the ruck and dashed through for their second try. The conversion was missed leaving the game finely poised at 12-11.
Georgia Cutt ensured that Yorkshire went into the break 17-11 ahead when she picked up a loose ball and then beat two Sussex players to score while Sussex were down to 14 players.
Sussex once again found themselves a player down in the second half and Yorkshire's Alexandra Wallace made it count with a stunning individual effort to score their fourth try.
Both sides were evenly matched for much of the second half but Churm made sure that the trophy would be returning to Yorkshire with a try in the final few minutes from the captain to make it 27-11 at the final whistle.
Cornwall claim narrow win at HQ
Cornwall won their first men's county championship in three years in what was a thrilling repeat of their 2016 final against Cheshire.
A physical opening quarter set the tone for a bruising encounter with Yorkshire winger Alex Ducker breaking a deadlock after 17 minutes with a fantastic effort from 45 metres to score under the posts.
Frazer Honey slotted the conversion to make it 7-0 to Cornwall to the delight of the Trelawny Army in the stands.
Remarkably it stayed that way for the next 30 minutes with both teams unable to break through the opposition's defensive lines.
Cheshire's Tom Morton finally got his side on the scoresheet with 47 minutes gone with the fly half picking from the base of the ruck before diving over to score. Crucially, the conversion from out wide was missed.
A thrilling final 10 minutes saw Cheshire take the lead for the first time in the game when Tom Sanders crashed over. Morton converted to give them a 12-7 lead and give his side hope of a first Division One final win since 1998.
However a stunning final few minutes saw Cheshire reduced to 13 men and with the clock in added time the ball was passed to Seti Raumakita who sidestepped his way over for the game's decisive try.
Full back Matt Shepherd slotted the conversion with the final kick of the game to give Cornwall a famous 14-12 victory.
