Your News Moseley to see in the New Year with an All Black legend

Super January Welcome to Moseley & four home fixtures!

The end of the icy conditions means that Moseleys first game of the New Year will go ahead as planned with the visit of Nottingham to Billesley Common on New Years Day and the added attraction of an All Black legend, Ali Williams scheduled to be in the visitors team.

After just two home fixtures during all of November and December, Moseley will start the New Year with four home games in the space of a month! All matches are Saturdays with 3pm kick offs.

The Nottingham fixture is followed by a second visit to London Welsh on Saturday 8th January. Its then three in a row at Billesley Common with the visits of traditional rivals from South Wales for B&I Cup ties.

Moseley v Swansea (Sat 15th)

Moseley v Neath (Sat 22nd)

January is rounded off with a local derby against near neighbours in the RFU Championship

Moseley v Birmingham & Solihull (Sat 29th).

Hospitality Box Offers

There is limited availability for hospitality boxes at both the Nottingham and Birmingham & Solihull fixtures please enquire for these two games as soon as possible. However special offers are available for the two British & Irish Cup games where companies or individuals can entertain 12 people with high quality catering and a superb view for less than 40 per head including match entry, parking etc. Great value!

All Black Star expected this Saturday!

Spectators in South Birmingham this Saturday are likely to see the highest profile player for a number of years entertaining what is expected to be a bumper festive crowd.

Ali Williams, 29 year old New Zealand lock, joined Nottingham on a months loan prior to Christmas. He is using this spell to prepare for the Super 15 season and a bid to extend his 61 caps for the All Blacks in the run up to the World Cup being held later in 2011 in his home country.

Moseley & Nottingham - Shared heritage

Moseley and Nottingham have played each other since the late 19th century and the Midlands rivals invariably serve up exciting fixtures.

Whilst both teams have fielded high profile internationals in the not too distant past, both sets of supporters may recall Simon Hodgkinson, who between1981-98 made 318 appearances and scored 2,778 points for the Nottingham side before joining Moseley

Hodgkinson then went on to set Moseleys record for individual points in a game when he bagged 27 against London Irish in 1995. This was only recently beaten by current Moseley player Ollie Thomas when he scored 28 in 2007 against Nottingham.
