Llanelli 35 v 21 Moseley
27 February 2010 - Parc y Scarlets, Llanelli
Birmingham Moseley

Match Report

Llanelli's bonus point B & I Cup win.

Chris Kennan's claim of being an old Moseley player is still to be verified, however his undoubted talent is not in question as he along with Moseley's Number 8 James Rodwell were the two outstanding players on view in this entertaining British and Irish Cup match.

Keenan's aggressive tackles and delicate off loads along with Rodwell's outstanding pace off the back of the Moseley scrum were the features of this entertaining game and Scottish Referee Graham Knox played his part with an excellent approach to the game which culminated in a 7 try spectacle.

By half time, Llanelli were full value for their 18-0 lead with two tries from the 'valley boys' Ryan Bayliss and inspiring Tavis Knoyle while youngsters Steve Shingler kicked one penalty and conversion and Dale Ford kicked a beauty penalty from 45 metres on the half time whistle.

Outside half Tristan Roberts then opened the Moseley account with a good try and conversion only to be cancelled out by a Chris Keenan try, converted by Shingler.

Moseley then used their bench to great effect and continued to attack the Llanelli try line deservedly scoring two converted tries from Andy Hall and Dan Oselton with Roberts adding the extras. With just four points seperating the teams, Steve Shingler steadied the ship with a good penalty and five minutes later in the 80th minute brother Aaron pounced on a loose ball to score wide out which Steve duly converted for a first B & I Cup win.
