Moseley come up against a very strong Loughborough side and pay the price for poor discipline.


Moseley back at home and again battling the elements up on Beirut as the wind and rain played a part in the game against Loughborough. Right from the onset Loughborough were well organised, taking the ball at pace and looking to offload out of the tackle.

The weather hampered any free flowing rugby and the forwards battled at close quarters, leading to a number of turnovers from both sides. Loughborough settle into their stride and made good use of sucking in the Moseley defence to create space out wide.

Moseley managed to put together some good passages, using the kick and chase with the wind advantage in the second half. There were also some excellent cover tackles in defence to stop a lot of tries. However, Moseley's ill discipline being offside at the rucks and high tackles meant Loughborough were able to capitalise on these mistakes and keep the scoreboard ticking over.

In the second half Moseley were better organised and put together some bit hits in attack. Moseley also restricted Loughborough's scoring to three tries after the break, reflecting the improvement in the defensive line and tackling.

A well deserved victory for a very good Loughborough side, which Moseley will be looking to reverse when the sides meet again in December.
