Keys win it at a canter against poor opposition.

CROSS Keys barely had to get out of second gear to overwhelm a very poor Moseley side at Pandy Park in the B&I Cup in a game low on quality even though Keys scored five tries..

The English Championship side already had two wins under their belts in the competition, against Plymouth and Bristol, but never looked like making it three.

Moseley benefited from a string of early penalties and took the lead with a seventh-minute penalty from Oliver Thomas.

That was about the sum total of the Moseley effort because they never looked like scoring again as Keys took control with a dominant pack and much more ammunition behind.

Two penalties by Gareth David nudged Keys in front before tries by Leon Andrews and Nathan Trowbridge along with a David conversion made it 18-3 at half time.

It was the same pattern in the second half and it became a question of how many tries Keys would score.

They managed three by Jevon Groves, Andrews again and Kristian Baller rounded things off with the fifth.

Cross Keys: Tries - L Andrews (33, 74), N Trowbridge (39), J Groves (63), K Baller (78); Cons - G David (39, 63), L Andrews (74, 78); Pens - David (18, 24, 54) Moseley: Pen - O Thomas (7)
