New Moseley signing Greg King looks forward to working with Kevin Maggs
Jun 26 2011 by Brian Dick, Sunday Mercury :
New Moseley signing Greg King has revealed he was attracted to Billesley Common by the prospect of playing under Kevin Maggs. The 23-year-old agreed a one-year contract last week after spending most of his formative years at Worcester Warriors. But even though he had a year left on his contract at Sixways the Chipping Norton-based centre asked to be released so that he could see more first-team action. King made 18 appearances spread across three seasons with Warriors but found it difficult to force his way into a midfield that included internationals Sam Tuitupou, Dale Rasmussen and Alex Grove. "I needed to take a step sideways to start going forward again," King said. "I still have ambitions to be a full-time rugby player so I really wanted to play more. I needed to get a lot more game-time because that's when you get better. I had a really fun time at Worcester it just ended on a frustrating note. All year I was going in and asking to get some game time but the boys got on a bit of a run then Grovesy, who is a class player, came back in and I was getting frustrated so the best thing to happen was to move clubs. At Mose King will link up with Maggs who enjoyed a dazzling playing career with Bath and Bristol and won 70 caps for Ireland. Indeed the new Moseley head coach, who was appointed successor to Ian Smith at the end of last season, was half of a brilliant Irish centre pairing that also included Brian O'Driscoll. And King recognises such experience can only benefit his game. "I had a really good meeting with Kevin who was obviously a pretty good centre in his own right. I was delighted to hear about his plans to play very open attacking rugby. One of his first questions to me was "Could I play outside centre?" I told him I could, I played England age group rugby at 13, it's basically the same position. That would bring King into the side alongside Andy Reay and see him fill the berth vacated by Bevon Armitage's move to Plymouth.

My Dad (Ex Moseley Hooker Craig). He was the person I watched week in, week out, and him playing hooker too meant I always took a keen interest when he played.
Alex Corbisiero, simply due to his commitment on and off the pitch. His dedication is something I hope to emulate.
Best rugby memory
I was a mascot for Sale Sharks v London Wasps in 2005. Meeting all the big names like Jason Robinson, Lawrence Dallaglio and Mark Cueto was brilliant but speaking to Trevor Leota as an 11 year old kid was something I won’t forget.
Losing the U17’s National Shield Final at Sixways. It was just a sour end to what had been a really hard-fought and exciting season.
To play at the highest level possible.
Twickenham. I remember going there as a kid and just being in awe of the place. It’s the home of Rugby and the place where everybody dreams of playing.
The sense of community. Everybody knows everybody and there is always somebody looking out for you.
Chris Kemp’s Shuttle Runs. I always enjoy training but those runs drain you physically and mentally.
Something that always plagued me was the fact that the ball had to leave your hands when taking a quick tap penalty. It seems trivial but I think that altering that rule slightly would allow the game to continue flowing as well as allow other, less skilful players to add impetus themselves.
Not particularly. If anything, it would probably be that I always text my Dad just before every game.
Probably David Haye. Not for his boxing particularly but just because I find him entertaining; his arrogance and the way he can talk himself up.
I’m starting University in October so aside from training and relaxing in between, I’m trying my best to read around my course in preparation at the moment.
To do my best at everything I do and be as successful and happy as possible.
I enjoy going to the Cinema

Kevin Maggs promoted to head coach at Moseley RFC
By Brian Dick, Birmingham Post, 19th May 2011
Moseley has announced the promotion of assistant Kevin Maggs to the role of head coach. The 36-year-old replaces Ian Smith, who asked for his contract not to be renewed at the end of last season, in what will be his first job in charge of a Championship outfit.
The former Ireland centre has agreed a one-year contract having made a good impression in his role as Smith's backs coach last season.
Maggs beat off more than 40 other applicants and impressed the powers at Billesley Common with his contacts, commitment and positivity.
And although last term was effectively Maggs's first full season as a coach, he brings with him the benefit of 70 international caps, a stellar playing career and success in his first two sideline roles at Rotherham and Mose.
While Maggs admits he is taken aback at the speed of his elevation, he is determined to prove himself. "I have always been ambitious throughout my career and it's no different in coaching", he said. "I have been doing it on and off - because of my personal situation - for the last two-and-a-half years and it's come a little bit earlier than I expected. But it's a challenge I am really looking forward to. I have got a good support network both within the club and outside it and I can't wait to get started".
"I enjoyed working with Ian and expected to be doing the same this year but, it's a great opportunity being head coach at a club like Moseley with all its fantastic history".

Moseley have signed Northampton prop Tom Warren on a full time basis for the 2014-15 campaign.
The 24-year-old is set to be released by Saints at the end of the season but has been snapped up by Kevin Maggs after impressing as a dual registered player.
Derby-born Warren will be a familiar face at Billesley Common having spent parts of the last three seasons playing for both Mose and Northampton’s A team.
Indeed he has already made 42 appearances in the Red and Black and scored his first try for the club against Bristol a few weeks ago.
That and his ability around the park meant Maggs didn’t need a second invitation to make Warren an offer.
“As soon as we heard he was available we made a move for him,” the Moseley head coach said. “I am a little bit surprised he’s not staying at Northampton but he’s got to that point where he is above the age of an academy contract.
“He has done very well when he has been here, him and Craig Voisey are probably two of the best looseheads in the league in terms of what they offer so Tom has got a big future with us.
“He will really benefit from regular game-time with us next year, he’ll really improve working with Dave Hilton and he’s definitely got the potential to step back up into the Premiership.”
Maggs is satisfied Warren, who has also played for Coventry, is over the back problems which cost him virtually all of 2012.
“He’s played a lot of games since then, he’s going to be a very good signing for us. We’re delighted to get him.”
