Match Report

Moseley celebrated a dramatic victory over relegation rivals Rotherham

By David Lawrence – Birmingham Mail

An ankle injury may have cut short Greg King’s big day but the powerful Moseley centre was still able to celebrate his side’s dramatic victory over relegation rivals Rotherham.

 

The former England Under-20 international led the Red and Blacks on to the field to celebrate chalking up 100 games only to suffer a first-half head injury before his ankle problem forced him off at the start of the second period.

 

“I tried to take a load of painkillers to stay on the field but it was no good,” King explained.

 

“It was a very proud moment for me. It’s my fifth year at the club and the strides that Moseley have taken in that time have been incredible with our amazing new stand and facilities.

 

“We know we can stay in this league and keep on building and as players we want to build a legacy.”

 

The win hoisted Moseley off the foot of the table, dragging the Titans back into the dogfight at the same time.

 

The Yorkshire visitors may have arrived on the back on nine straight defeats in league and cup but they still made an impressive start when livewire hooker Darran Harris wrestled his way to the line after just five minutes.

 

Slowly Moseley clawed their way back and, thanks to a brace of Charlie Foley penalties, had a one-point lead going into the interval.

 

But Rotherham started the second period just like they had the first with a Ross Thomas penalty restoring their advantage, the fly-half then firing over another kick for an 11-6 advantage. It was a lead they would probably have held on to had it not been for back-row Tom Calladine picking up a yellow card 13 minutes from time for a needless mid-air tackle on Moseley skipper Chris Brightwell, who had jumped to gather the restart.

 

By the time the flanker was able to return ten minutes later the game had turned in the home side’s favour.

 

Second-row Greg Charlton was driven over from a 15-metre line-out to level the scores before Foley took over by stroking over the conversion before making the win safe with his third penalty of the afternoon.

 

A delighted King added: “It wasn’t the best of games but the win was all that mattered and the support once again was absolutely fantastic.”
