When a set of forwards containing three Test players and one A international meets another made up of the proverbial butcher, baker and chandler, it does not take a Modern Language graduate of Brasenose College, Oxford to figure the outcome.
Newcastle had one of those too, tighthead Oliver Tomaszczyk brought his considerable bulk and intellect to bear on Moseley, in a visiting pack that contained the large frames of Carlo Del Fava, Scott MacLeod and Allister Hogg.
The trio, who boasted 125 caps in the various shades of Italian and Scottish blue between them, were ably supported by England Saxon Rob Vickers with the effect that Moseley were eventually overwhelmed.
In total the Falcons scored seven tries, all through the forwards, and three in the last ten minutes as the home eight ran out of steam.
Moseley's spirit was never less than willing but by the end their flesh had become weak and a hitherto interesting match became all too one-sided. In truth it became a little bit indecent,
With all that fire-power up front and such resolute determination to use it, Newcastle looked the best-drilled side to come into the second tier since Northampton in 2007.
Certainly Bristol and Leeds have never looked anything like as stone-hearted and capable after their relegations from the Premiership and Worcester didn't ever really impose themselves quite so completely.
Indeed when the Warriors were at Billesley Common a couple of years ago there was barely anything between them and their comparatively rag-tag hosts until they invited their 'Sixways Superstars' from the bench to settle the issue.
With Dean Richards in charge Newcastle are never likely to be similarly seduced by the cult of celebrity and instead they treated Moseley with all the affection a pelt hunter reserves for a baby seal. By clubbing them over the head, again and again and again.
Seemingly never tiring of their lineout drive and scrum power the Falcons shunted and shifted the lighter, younger Moseley eight around the park to and - from the 70th minute onwards, beyond breaking point.
Which suggests two things. Firstly that Moseley must take credit for frustrating a Falcons backline that contained Jimmy Gopperth, Tane Tu'ipulotu and Rory Lawson with a display of commendable defensive shape.
And secondly that it took Newcastle more than an hour to subvert the home team, indeed for the first 40 minutes the Red and Blacks waged a pretty successful guerilla war on their illustrious guests.
By turning the breakdown into an arm wrestle and showing near-reckless line-speed they hurled themselves at the league leaders and at times knocked them out of their stride.
Led by breakaway Olly Robinson Moseley harried and hassled a foothold in the match. That is until they stumbled in the way of a haymaker, as they did when MacLeod and Richard Mayhew scored in the 19th and 37th minutes, respectively.
No matter. Playing down the slope and with the sun in opponents' eyes, interval deficits bigger than 20-6 have been wiped out at this venue before.
Not this time though. This time Moseley couldn't get the ball and rarely had it in attacking positions. Only once in the second period did they enjoy an elevated platform and Robinson used that to smash his way through from close range.
That was as good as it got for Kevin Maggs's men. Will Welch and Mayhew had already effectively ended the uncertainty so all that remained was for the rest of the Falcons forwards to hammer home their advantage. Ruthlessly.
