Cinderford got their preparations for the 21/22 season off to the perfect start with a hugely encouraging display at Billesley Common.

The Forest team travelled with a squad of 30 players with the match being played over 4×20 minute sessions. The first session saw the home side pressing hard for the opening score, but when Cinderford secured a turnover the momentum of play swung towards them and they gradually worked their way downfield before a well-executed lineout catch and drive enabled hooker Nathan Taylor to score an unconverted try.

The second session followed a similar pattern with Joe Mullis stretching the lead from another attacking lineout.

Birmingham Moseley hit back in the third session with a couple of tries, the second of which was converted to put them 12-10 ahead, but the visitors responded when scrum-half Jimmy Williams darted over for a try down the blindside.

The final session began with the home team quickly re-taking the lead with a converted try, however it was Cinderford who finished the stronger and patient approach play saw a penalty kicked into the corner and Sam Baker was driven over for their fourth try, which Reece Boughton converted.
