Cinderford earned themselves an early Christmas present as they completed the double over Birmingham Moseley.

The home side opened the scoring in the eighth minute when they kicked a penalty into the corner to set up an attacking lineout and their catch and drive saw hooker Nathan Taylor go over for a try, which Liam Hemming converted.  A quick break down the blindside by home scrum-half Toby Dabell was taken on by Tom Darby and his inside pass found Jack Hayes who scored a second try, which Hemming converted.  More solid approach work from the home forwards saw them gain another lineout 5m out and this time it was prop forward James Elliot who got the ball down to make it 19-0 after 20 minutes and the score remained unchanged at the interval.

Cinderford scored their bonus point try early in the second-half when No8 Harry Hone forced his way over, before the visitors earned themselves some brief respite when the referee awarded them a penalty try.  Two further tries for Cinderford in the space of three minutes effectively ended the match as a contest. First of all a turnover in mid-field saw the ball moved swiftly out wide to Darby who just managed to squeeze in at the corner, before Hone once again showed good strength to grab his second try, both of which were converted by Hemming.

Moseley pressed hard for some consolation in the closing stages and they were eventually rewarded when the referee awarded them a second penalty try.
