Preview: Albion v Moseley
March 29 2019
The week sees the return of Moseley to The Brickfields.
Moseley have struggled somewhat this season and are currently lying 12th, a game clear of the relegation battle, but little more. As a consequence we can expect them to come out fighting as they seek to secure their N1 future a task they have been successful at so far this month having won their last 3 games.
Albion meanwhile, will be looking to bounce back from their disappointment at Rosslyn Park and provide the home crowd with a performance to match that of the previous fixture against Darlington.
This season Moseley have outscored Alion in tries 90 to 85. The backs have claimed the majority of tries and the honours seem to be spread out amongst them, meanwhile the forwards are not that far behind, having chalked up 38 - with an additional 5 PTs. Moseley look like they will be a difficult team to defend against.
Defensively, they are second worst in the league for conceding tries (101) with half them being scored by forwards. The alternative it seems is to go round the ends as wingers have got past them 26 times.
Player to watch - James William at centre. The go-to guy for kicking duties and their leading try scorer with 9.
Also note former Albion players Tom Fidler starting at 3 and James Tideswell on the bench.
Weather: Dry, warm(ish) and sunny, a little cloud for the second half. Barely a breeze.
Forecast: It's going to depend on how much Moseley want it. Albion to edge it - bonus points all round.pqs: qs:
