The win means that the Scots finish the season in eighth place in the Greene King IPA Championship, recording just their second try bonus point of the season in this afternoon’s impressive display. 

Robbie Fergusson got the scoring underway just three minutes in. Bright made a break from a quick penalty, the ball was then recycled and Jimmy Litchfield's offload found the centre to score under the posts. Peter Lydon got his first of nine conversions to give the Scots a 7-0 lead.

Moseley responded shortly after, George Watkins was the beneficiary of a smart offload and the winger ran clear. Charlie Foley’s conversion levelled the score at 7-7. 

Jason Harries got his first try of the match just after the 15 minute mark. Pete Lydon broke the line of defence and found Robbie Fergusson, who played a long looping pass to the Welshman on the wing to put the Scots ahead. 

Mark Bright scored a sensational try just two minutes later, one that will be amongst the best of the season. The number eight ran on to an offload from Harry Sheppard, and then audaciously chipped the ball over the full-back, gathered and sprinted over the line. 

Harries’ second try secured the bonus point before the half-hour mark. Sheppard again was heavily involved, and the winger ran clear of the defence to all-but secure the victory, giving his side a 28-7 lead. 

Two minutes later George Watkins’ second score brought Moseley back in to the match. The winger showed an impressive turn of pace to evade the Scottish defence and dive over the line. 

That was the final score of the first half, and the Scots had a healthy 28-12 lead at the break. 

The Scots came flying out of the blocks in the second half and George Horne scored the fifth try just three minutes in. The scrum-half made a break from outside the 22 and then sidestepped three defenders to dot the ball down. 

Mark Bright put the game beyond doubt with his second try which was from a rolling maul, before Chris Brightwell scored Moseley’s third from close range minutes later. 

The captain completed his hat-trick from another rolling maul after 63 minutes, and then Alec Coombes scored his first try for the club after breaks from both Russell Weir and Bright to take the Scots over the 50 point mark. 

Kyle Evans got Moseley’s try bonus point after 69 minutes, the winger found himself in acres of space to score in the corner. 

Neale Patrick got his first try for the club at 73 minutes with a pick-up from close range which allowed him to power over the line. Jason Harries then also completed his hat-trick with a typically physical carry to barge his way to the try-line and put the Scots 24-68 ahead. 

There was still time for one more try, and it came courtesy of Peter Lydon. The fly-half chipped over the defence and gathered his own kick to score a brilliant try. Mark Bright then finished his London Scottish career by taking the conversion to huge applause from the crowd. The flags went up and signalled the end of the match, the scoreboard displaying a huge 75-24 victory.
