Moseley (8) 8
[ALLIED DUNBAR PREMIERSHIP TWO]

Rugby put on a class act to climb into a midtable position with this impressive victory over their near neighbours.

Moseley scored all their points in the first half after trailing by 13-0 but they had no answer as Lions swarmed forward in the second period.

Lions' skipper Mark Ellis was particularly pleased with the performance.

"That was very satisfying," was his initial verdict. "I am looking forward now to next week's match against Worcester. That match will show us just how much we have come on."

Rugby took the lead in the second minute when flank forward Alwyn Davies drove over in the clubhouse corner. Martyn Davies converted and then kicked two penalty goals.

Moseley responded just before half-time with an unconverted try by Jason Mellors and a penalty goal by Andy Binns, but Rugby then took charge.

To'o Vaega and Paul Bale scored tries which Martyn Davies converted and he also kicked a penalty goal.

RUGBY LIONS: M. Davies; Saunders, Vaega, Gillooly (Jasnikowski 78), Bale; Morgan (Czerpak 75), Bailey; Rees, Milner (Matthew Davies 69), Revan, Thompson, Field, A. Dabies, Pain (Withers 52), Ellis.

Coventry and Rugby Lions have both been drawn at home in the third round of the Tetley's Bitter Cup.

Coventry play Worcester at Coundon Road and the Lions face Leeds at Webb Ellis Road in another attractive all Division Two tie.

The matches will be played on the week ending November 14/15.
