Tribute Cornwall 2 is an English level ten rugby union league for clubs based in Cornwall. The champions (and in some seasons the runner-up) are promoted to Tribute Cornwall 1; there is no relegation. The league had run continuously since 1987–88, except for a two season break, when Cornwall 2 was combined with Cornwall League 1 for seasons 2009–10 and 2010–11. The competition recommenced in 2011–12 when it was decided to form two leagues of seven teams each.[1]

For the current season (2016–17) Cornwall 1 and Cornwall 2 have been amalgamated to create the Tribute Cornwall League with fifteen teams playing each other once in the first phase. After Christmas the teams split into two leagues with the top eight playing in Cornwall One and the remainder playing in Cornwall Two.[2][3]

Roseland are the current champions and along with the other five teams will play in the level nine Tribute Cornwall League for season 2016–17. St Agnes are the most successful team having won the league on five occasions and Helston have won the competition on four occasions. Both teams currently play in the Tribute Cornwall League.
