Moseley vs Nottingham - Match Preview

Nottingham Rugby heads to Billesley Common on Saturday (22nd November) to face Moseley in the Greene King IPA Championship.

Moseley Preview 2014 League Away


The Green and Whites narrowly missed out on a bonus point against Bristol last time out, despite a strong performance to frustrate the league leaders.  Only a last minute interception try prevented Nottingham from taking a point out of the match, which was the least they deserved after an impressive defensive display.

Moseley hasn't been the happiest of hunting grounds for Nottingham in recent seasons and they were defeated there earlier this season in the British and Irish Cup.  Moseley's recent league form has seen them climbing the table after a difficult start, while the Green and Whites currently occupy fifth place in the league after a good start to their campaign.

Nottingham's chances have been boosted by the return of Paul Grant, who spent last weekend on loan with Leicester Tigers.  He comes straight back in at Number 8 with Tom Calladine making way.

Otherwise, the starting line-up remains unchanged from the side that started against Bristol.  Amongst the replacements, a fit again Michael Holford comes in for Rob O'Donnell and Javiah Pohe replaces Liam O'Neill.
