Tom Rawlings hails Launceston back line

Launceston skipper Tom Rawlings has praised his side's back line after their 30-10 win over Southend.

Richard Bright's two first half-tries that were converted by Kieron Lewitt saw Launceston lead 14-10 at the break as Sam Arnott and Andrew McClintock scored unconverted tries for Southend.

But three Lewitt penalties and a last-minute converted Jamie Tripcony try saw the Cornish All Blacks home.

The win sees Launceston go seventh in National Two South.

"I think our back line has come in for a bit of stick over the past couple of months," Rawlings told BBC Radio Cornwall .

"But they went out and showed Southend what they can do and I think they showed the rest of the league as well.

"We didn't hold back at scrum time and I think that really set the platform."
