Royston are still staring relegation in the face after their match with Weston Colville was abandoned because of rain on Saturday.
Weston Colville made a steady start, reaching 54-0 off 16 overs. Opener Webb, though, was dismissed by Temple first ball after the drinks break, having made 50 of the opening stand.
Brightmore and Curtis were tearing into Royston's change bowling when the first shower came, which reduced the game to 40 overs per side.
After the break, Weston Colville accelerated and, although Royston took three quick wickets, the opposition racked up a formidable 224-4, with opener Brightmore unbeaten on 74.
This target was reduced to 197 off 35 overs after a further rain break.
Although Royston made a brisk start, reaching 35-0 off just 5.4 overs, with skipper Adam Newman scoring nine and Hall 24, a further shower ended play.

Team manager Richard Temple, pictured in action, said: "It was a pity as we started positively with the bat and the rain rules definitely favour the team batting second.
"We probably need to win at least three out of our last six games to stay up."
Royston host NCI at Therfield, on Saturday.
