Cinderford made it three wins from three games as they continued pre-season programme of matches with a hard-earned victory over Birmingham Moseley.
The match was played over 3 x 30-minute sessions and it was the Forest team who opened the scoring when James Forrester stepped back inside and put Mike Austin away for an unconverted try. A series of pick and goes from the home forwards eventually led to George Angell forcing his way over for his team’s second try, which Paul Morgan converted. The visitors quickly responded with a well taken try before Morgan landed a penalty to make 15-5 at the end of the first session.
Moseley were the better side for much of the second session and they deservedly reduced the deficit with another well-constructed try, which was converted. However right at the end of the session Cinderford set-up an attacking lineout and Sam Baker was driven over for a try, which Reece Boughton converted.
Much of the play in the final session was evenly balanced, but it was the home side who finished the stronger and quick hands created just enough space for Will Baldwin to dive over in the corner and complete the scoring.
