Moseley 63-5 Dudley Kingswinford
A Mediterranean climate greeted us at Billesley last weekend with temperature in excess of 25’C, along with an eager squad of 25+ keen to get the season off to a positive start. We played four quarters of 15 minutes, enabling both squads to rotate as many players as possible.
At a physical level the contest was pretty even and DK fought hard in the close quarter rucks and mauls and they made a good contest over the scrum.
Flankers were beginning to develop their new role, harrying and disrupting opposition breaks and impeding the quick ball. Our lighter squad benefitted from the bigger pitch, giving room for our backs to show their higher levels of fitness and to put into action some rehearsed passing moves. Score rate was kept ticking over, however we were still required to defend bravely on our own try line to limit any unnecessary losses.
1st quarter Mosley 12 DK 0
