Hinckley Colts 13 Moseley Colts 5
A patched up Colts side, with only 4 subs, travelled to Lutterworth to play this end of season game believing they were to face a young Hinckley side,-wrong! They were confronted by 30+ players who all wanted a piece of the action and got it.
Moseley played with the wind in the 1st half against what was probably the younger group, and had the lion's share of the ball, but only 1 try to show for their efforts when Nash Maphosa, making his first start for Moseley at 7, touched down following a backrow play and drive. Another 25 minutes of play were to pass before the next score was posted, this being a penalty kick to the opposition.
The second half saw the mass change of personnel in the Hinckley ranks and as the visitors tired so the older players opposing them gained control. Another penalty and converted try were enough to take the game from Moseley's reach and the lead was never seriously threatened.
So, a hard end to what has been a very hard season, with more injuries sustained than in any recent season. Well done to all the squad this year and good luck to those lads who now leave the Colts Section.
