The first recorded rugby match in Penzance is from 1870, played in the grounds of Poltair House, Heamoor and organised by W Borlase of Marlborough School. The Penzance team was mostly public schoolboys, home on holiday, and the opponents the Eastern Telegraph Company based in Porthcurno.
The club, formed in 1876, did not flourish and was restarted in 1883, by J B Cornish who acted as Secretary, Treasurer and Captain. The club initially played in Claret and Blue but soon changed to black and white in varying styles.
