Match Report

Maggs targets 'must-win' games after Mose defeat

By Tom Innes – Birmingham Mail

Moseley face a pair of “must-win” encounters later this month after having to make do with a consolation bonus point from their trip to Jersey.

Kevin Maggs’ men lost to the Channel Island side and the head coach acknowledged the importance of the next two matches in the battle to avoid Championship relegation.

“We’ve got Rotherham at home and then we go to Ealing, and those are games we need to win,” he said. “We’re bringing a point back from Jersey, and there was a big improvement on the way we’d played against Nottingham last weekend, but I’m disappointed because we had opportunities to win the game.”

Jersey took an early lead when lock Uili Kolo’ofa’i broke through and found team-mate Nick Haining in support to score, but the visitors countered when influential fly-half Charlie Foley crowned a series of attacks by darting over in the corner.

Moseley’s forwards had the upper hand at scrum time, twice pushing Jersey off their own ball, but were second best at the lineout, failing on several occasions to secure the possession they needed.

Although kickers had to contend with gale-force winds blowing across the ground, Foley landed two penalties to one by his opposite number, Aaron Penberthy, to leave Moseley ahead by 10-11 at the break.

Jersey started the second half strongly, scoring two tries within 15 minutes through James Freeman and Kolo’ofa’i, the second score coming at the end of a series of rolling mauls that had brought a yellow card when Greg Charlton was adjudged to have collapsed the maul.

Trailing by 11 points, Moseley countered with spirit and won several penalties offering the chance to get back into the game.

An attacking lineout close to the Jersey line was picked off, and on the next occasion a maul was penalised for blocking, but with 10 minutes remaining the desired try arrived.

Set up by two of Moseley’s stand-out players, Buster Lawrence and Greg King, the move was finished by Kyle Evans and Foley’s well-struck conversion cut the gap to just four.

Jersey were able to control territory and possession for most of the last few minutes and eventually held on for their third successive win over Moseley.

“Moseley were a really tough proposition,” said Jersey head coach Harvey Biljon. “There was some disappointment that we couldn’t take a bonus point, but to get a win like that in difficult conditions was a good effort.”
