A disappointing game way to Birmingham Moseley, see Plymouth Albion lose 48 points to 26, dropping Plymouth to 14th place in National League One.
Plymouth Albion travelled to Birmingham Moseley looking for their first win in five games, having lost out on the previous four games, but it was the home side, Birmingham Moseley, that came out of the blocks firing on all cylinders!
With Roach & Hearle on the wings and Nick David at full-back, Moseley’s backline offered up searing pace, which Plymouth Albion failed to contain, it had looked like plain sailing for Moseley with Williams crossing the line inside 45 seconds, before Allsopp bagged a brace of tries. Williams’ boot was also spot on as Moseley ran up a 27-0 lead in the first quarter of the game.
However, there appeared to be a fight back from Plymouth Albion as the pack drove forward, giving way to three tries, falling across the end of the first half and into the start of the second half, putting Albion back into contention and within eight points of Moseley.
But the introduction of Moseley’s prop, Fidler off the bench, shored up the Moseley scrum and from then on it was left to the Moseley backs to lay down more points and wrap up back-to-back wins for Moseley, the first time this season.
Albion did head home with a bonus point when, with back row Lawrence Cowen in the bin, Albion pushed over the line for their fourth try with the last move of the game.
