And Shelford and Cantabrigian are also beaten

Cameron Ruddock’s try helped earn Cambridge a second losing bonus point in a row as they were beaten 22-15 at home by Birmingham Moseley in National League One.

Jack Green opened the scoring with a penalty for Cambridge after only three minutes.

But James Dixon levelled matters with a kick after 22 minutes.

However, Cambridge went into half time with a 10-3 lead thanks to Louis Rawlings’ try and Green’s conversion.

It was all-square a minute into the second half as Moseley scored a converted try through Michael Penn, with Dixon adding the extras.

Tim Molenaar pounced for Moseley’s second try after 54 minutes, with Dixon converting for a 17-10 lead.

Adam Caves then got their third try after 61 minutes to make it 22-10.

But Ruddock’s score in the 80th minute took Cambridge to within seven points, enough for a bonus point.

In London & SE Premier, Shelford lost 52-0 at Guernsey, while in London 2NE, Cantabs were beaten 12-8 by Ipswich.

All three teams have a blank weekend this Saturday.
