Narrow losses but good reviews for dual registered Saints

On Friday night both Ryan Glynn and Sam Dickinson got on the scoresheet as Moseley came within a whisker of a superb second-half comeback against Leeds.

Trailing 3-26 at half-time, Moseley showed a never-say-die attitude after the break, with Glynn tapping a quick penalty to dive over and Dickinson crossing later in the half. However the fightback fell just short as a late Leeds penalty secured the points.

Ethan Waller also started in this Championship game, with Alex Day and Tom Warren both coming off the bench.

On Saturday afternoon Tom Collins marked his debut for Coventry with two scores in their 10-try National League One thriller against Old Albanians. Collins crossed inside the first four minutes of the game and earned good reviews for his performance. But in a game that saw the lead change hands several times it was Old Albanians who found themselves in front when the final whistle blew, going home with a 39-34 win.

At the same time, albeit a bit further east, Will Hooley, Teimana Harrison and Darrell Dyer all started for Cambridge in their NL1 clash with Blaydon. This was another tight game decided by a late score as Cambridge belied their lowly league placing with a strong defensive performance.

Marshalled by Hooley in the second half, the Blood and Sands came close to upsetting the formbook, only to see the contest go out of reach as Blaydon's pack powered its way over the line.
