Cornish All Blacks Awards Evening

Last night was the annual awards evening for the Cornish All Blacks. Instead of the usual black tie do, they decided to have a far more informal buffet. It got the same turnout and more of a profit so was probably the better option.

Star winger Matt Jess dominated the awards but paid the penalty as he had to down a pint before he was allowed to collect each of them (not sure if he wasn't wishing it was black tie by the end of the evening as that sort of penalty wouldn't have been imposed).

The Exeter bound speedster was no doubt the star of the season but other players also picked up trophies including the retiring Wayne Reed (who has shaved off his beard and looks far less frightening as a result).

Also honoured were Sam Hocking as comeback player of the year and Sam Alford as young back of the year.
