Cinderford overcame Rosslyn Park by the narrowest of margins to give their chances of avoiding relegation a real boost.

The match was an end-to-end affair throughout with the lead changing hands no fewer than nine times.  It was the home team who made the best of starts when Sam Smith crossed for an unconverted try.  Park hit back with a try from Jasper Cameron, which Luc Smith converted.  Max Knight restored the lead for the home side with another unconverted try, before Arthur Ellis put Park back ahead with a try, again converted by Smith.  Back came Cinderford with a try from Tom Knight, which Jake Shortland converted, before the visitors restored their lead with a try from Matt Gordon, which Smith converted to give them a 21-17 lead at the interval.

The home team were soon on the attack when play resumed and Paddy Pearce drove over the line to make it 22-21, but once again Park responded with a try from Ewan Fenley, which Max Craven converted.  It was all to play for going into the final quarter and Cinderford gave themselves a lifeline when Tom Samak and then Mike Wilcox combined to put Joe Mullis through for a try, which Shortland converted to put his team back in front and they were able to hold in the tense closing minutes for a vital victory.
