Cinderford made a cracking start to their final National One match of the season, scoring three tries in the opening 16 minutes, but they finished up well beaten at Rosslyn Park.
Ed Bogue opened the scoring for the visitors after nine minutes, when fellow centre Jack Hayes created the space for him to go over under the posts, with Liam Hemming converting. Alex Frame then gathered up a kick ahead from Ewan Fenley to score the next try soon afterwards and that was followed by a similar score from Reuben Norville, with Hemming adding the conversion as Cinderford looked to be well placed. As half-time approached No8 Hugo Ellis scored the opening try for Park from a driving maul and that was quickly followed by score from Joe Munro, which Harry Leonard converted.
The second half saw the home team take control of the match as they scored a further six tries through Stewart Maguire, a second from Ellis, Benji Marfo, Ollie Grove and a brace from Charlie Amesbury, with Leonard landing four conversions. Despite the disappointment of their defeat Cinderford can feel well pleased with an 8th place finish in the league.
