Nottingham 40 Moseley 15

By Tim Evershed – Birmingham Post

 

Moseley fell to a third successive defeat in the Championship, losing to Nottingham at Meadow Lane on Sunday.

 

An injury-time try for Richard Stott was scant consolation for a second-half performance that saw the Billesley outfit dominate possession. However, they were unable to turn that possession into points until it was too late.

 

Moseley had got off to the worst possible start as Nottingham returned the opening kick-off for a try with centre Ben Johnston getting on the end of a sweeping 60-metre move that also involved Cesar Sempere and Charlie Davies.

 

James Arlidge and Ed Styles swapped penalties before things got worse for the visitors on 18 minutes when full-back Anthony Carter slipped when attempting to field a kick leaving David Jackson unmolested to collect the ball and run in unopposed.

 

On the one occasion that Moseley showed composure on the ball and retained possession during the half they were rewarded with a try, scored by Carter on 29 minutes, but all too often poor handling let their opponents off the hook.

 

Another Arlidge penalty and a second Jackson try made the score 25-8 at the interval. The winger was on the end of Arlidge’s crossfield kick after Nottingham had made 60 metres on the other side of the field.

 

The second half began in similar fashion with Arlidge adding three more points before Jackson completed his hat-trick with the bonus-point score.

 

That prompted wholesale changes from Nottingham and although Moseley mounted wave after wave of attacks, they were unable to force their way through.

 

To rub salt into the wound when the ball was turned over Nottingham quickly moved it from defence into attack and although Jack Cobden knocked on with the line beckoning, Moseley made a mess of the ensuing scrum and Dave Marshall pounced on the loose ball to score.
