Moseley 7 Worcester 10 - Saturday 20th January

Moseley faced Worcester in a friendly on Saturday, the second meeting of the two sides this season. The Moseley squad was a mixture of youth and experience, as there were five under 16s and 17s in the squad. Ollie Luton was playing his first game back in Moseley colours this season and Jack Richards was returning from injury.

Moseley started the game very strongly, where after a good few minutes of pressure in the Worcester half, Dan Pinch evaded a couple of tackles and broke clear to score. James Oliver converted the try. However Worcester came back into the game and exerted periods of pressure on Moseley, with a good tackle from Alex Tunnicliff halting one attack.

However Moseley could not convert their territory and possession in the first half into points, and there were a couple of occasions where Moseley could have scored. The half time score was 7-0 to Moseley, who in the second half would have to play up the slope, slightly into the wind that was strongly blowing across the pitch.
Worcester started the second half as Moseley had started the first, and scored an early try. One of the Worcester backs broke a Moseley tackle in midfield and accelerated through, beating another Moseley tackler and going in for the score. This try was unconverted. Worcester then put more pressure on Moseley with kicks downfield and probing runs, one of which led to a scoring pass being knocked on near the line.

Moseley had some periods of possession, but after a strong drive by a Worcester player of over twenty yards, it gave them good field position. One of the second row forwards broke downfield and was tackled at the corner where the try was awarded, amid some different Moseley opinions. The try was unconverted, and was just minutes before the end of the match, the final score being 7-10 to Worcester . - Jack Richards
