Worcester Colts 13  Moseley Colts 5   - March 19th 2006

Moseley went out of the North Midlands Cup in this close encounter at Sixways.
With the scores at 5-5 at half-time and then enjoying about 70-30 in territory during the 2nd half, Moseley should have been capable of winning but instead conceded a penalty and another try.


A good forward drive early in the game gave the visitors the lead with John Duckers touching down. This was levelled 20 minutes into the game when missed blindside tackles off a scrum let the no.8 in at the corner.


A major problem for Moseley throughout the whole game however was the inability to win any lineout ball and this was a severe blow because the opposition were always happy to kick for touch knowing that they would probably still get the ball back. Even given this obstacle Moseley were in with a shout but another missed tackle from a scrum, this time on the openside, let the no.8 again make inroads to set up a score.


Plenty of effort, lack of cutting edge ,critical tackles missed, and oh those lineouts !!
