It rained with tries (11) at the Billesley Common with a thumping win for the home side. With hat-trick by Auile Smith, two each by Buster Lawrence, Jacques le Roux, Mason Tonks and individual tries by Nathaniel Titchard-Jones and Dan Wright. This free-flowing score line for Mose was a very welcome after an arduous last season. However, tougher ties will be forth coming during a long season. Meanwhile a very good start for the new management of Adam Balding (DoR) and Head Coach Peter Glackin.
