Richmond eventually overpowered Cinderford with a strong second half performance, which saw them score five tries and 33 points, after being 13-10 down at the interval.

The home side had all the momentum and territorial advantage in the first-half with Callum Sheedy kicking a penalty and converting a try from Harrison Yorke, as the hosts led 10-0 after 17 minutes of play, but they could have further ahead had they not of wasted a couple of clear scoring opportunities.

Richmond replied with try from Charles Broughton, converted by Andy Hall, who also landed a penalty.  Sheedy was on target with his second penalty on the stroke of half-time to give his side a slender lead at the break.

The visitors scored three tries in the opening ten minutes of the second half to completely change the complexion of the game, with replacement scrum-half Sam Stuart and No8 Chris Davies touching down twice, with Andy Hall converting all three.

Cinderford responded with a penalty try, which Sheedy converted, when the visitors were adjudged to have pulled down a driving maul.  However the visitors made sure of their victory with further tries from centre Ronnie Maclean-Dents and replacement prop Rupert Cowan.
