Late Albion Show Sees Off Moseley

Latest News   Match Reports

An astonishing late turnaround at the Brickfields saw Plymouth Albion take a 19-18 victory over Birmingham Moseley on Saturday.

Moseley got off to a strong start when they slotted a penalty won in front of the posts, and two more tries in the following 10 minutes opened out a 13-point advantage.

Connor Eastgate looked like he has gone over to reduce the arrears when he latched onto a loose pass and went over, but the referee had already blown for a knock-on.

Albion got their breakthrough when Robin Wedlake sprinted over, but Aquile Smith quickly pounced on an awkward ball to nudge Birmingham 11 points in front.

Harry Wilkinson was sent off early into the second half following an incident with an opponent, but the reduction to 14 players did not stifle the commitment of the Albion side.

That commitment paid off when Wedlake was set through by an exceptional kick by Archie Hill, and that forward momentum quickly carried Jake Bond over in a remarkable turn of events.

A late Moseley penalty threatened to turn the game on its head once more but it fell short, allowing Tom Putt to punt the ball out of play and secure the win.
