The Birmingham Daily Post of 29th February 1892 reported this game as follows:-
"MOSELEY v. NEWPORT.- The return match between the Moseley and Newport teams was played at the Reddings. The attendance of spectators was rather small, considering that the visitors had an unbroken record. The kick-off was taken by Moseley, and the ball was immediately returned into touch well down the field. Newport, from the start, obtained possession of the ball, and proved themselves to be the better team. They gained ground at a great pace, and almost as soon as they had started, it seemed, England secured a free kick, from which he obtained a goal. The visitors again made a rush, and within a short time a second try was scored by Pook, who received the ball from Henshaw. The place-kick was unsuccessful. Moseley then made an effort to get away, but the splendid passing of the Newport three-quarters enabled them to get within the home "25"; Phillips passed to A. Gould, who scored. England again failed at the kick. Moseley gained ground by kicking into touch, and R. H. Cattell made a clever run, but was collared. The visitors again rushed the ball, and Pook got nearly over the line. He passed to Watts, who scored. The try was not converted. The Newport men, especially the three-quarters, continued to play in a dashing style, and carried everything before them. Moseley men for a few minutes had the better of the game, and Cattell did good work. But Newport again pressed, and after A. J. Gould dropped a goal Henshaw obtained a try, which England turned into a goal. Shortly before half-time B. Gould scored, and England was successful with the kick. Moseley began the second half with a better show, but after a short resistance gave way, and Dauncey nearly got through. Moseley again tried to retrieve their fortune, but A. J. Gould secured another try. Moseley, with a fine combined rush, neared the Newport goal. Cattell, amidst cheers, scored the only try, and this was happily converted to a goal by A. Rogers. They, however, had immediately afterwards to touch down, and Graham soon scored a try. The game until the finish was chiefly in Newport's favour, and Pook scored a try. When time was called the score stood: Newport, 4 goals 6 tries; Moseley, 1 goal. Moseley: F. Smith, back; Byrne, Rogers, and Stone, three-quarter backs; Cattell and Rowlands, half-backs; Rogers, Cattell, Lycett, Yates, Horton, Ludlow, Chaloner, Ebbsworth, and Pountney, forwards. Newport: England, back; A. J. Gould, B. H. Gould, Thomas, and Dauncey, three-quarter backs; Parfitt and Phillips, half-backs; Graham (captain), Watts, Hannan, Day, Pook, Henshaw, Groves, and Osmond, forwards."
