Match Report

By John Beale – The Rugby Paper

 

Bright start from Brightwell

 

Moseley outscored Welsh Premiership Newport by six tries to three.

 

Moseley opened the scoring after 15 minutes with a try from debutant No 8 Chris Brightwell, after a searing break from fly-half Scott Browne. A score from centre Will Owen extended the lead but slack defensive work at the end of the half let in Josh skinner for a well worked try leaving Moseley with a narrow lead 12 – 10 at half-time.

 

Moseley were shocked into action after the restart when Newport scored a second try through Elliot Frewin, responding almost immediately with a brace of their own courtesy of wing Matt Williams and then a second for Brightwell after a length of the field move.

 

A third try on the hour for the visitors narrowed the gap again, but it was Moseley who finished the stronger with two further tries from Anthony Carter, after a cleaver offload by Brightwell, and full-back Mike Penn’s solo effort.
