Following on from the Rangers first league win of the season, they were faced with a challenging fixture at Moseley oak. The v’s started well putting lots of pressure on Moseley oak defence. The v’s conceded a penalty which gave the oaks a chance to apply some pressure from a short range line out. The performed a text book catch and drive to score in the corner. V’s found that this was going to be Moseley oaks weapon of choice and faced a barrage of close range line out but the pressure was to much and this broke the v’s defensive line again.
Things had started to click for Rangers and they defended better and under the pressure from the v’s a turn over ball was forced. Matt Turner secured the lose ball following a well executed defensive call to sprint clear of the trailing opposition to feed Ryan Brunsden who after beating his man finished under the post.
An error of the restart allows Moseley oak to cancel out the v’s try and they scored on the half time whistle.
The second half left the v’s looking the stronger side. They ran phases and kept ball in hand and looked the better side. Some great build up play lead to a second v’s, with Matt Hipkis finishing off a brilliant team try.
Things looked like there were turning but Moseley oak were gifted a break away try which left the v’s trailing by 9 points in the final 10 minutes. Unfortunately the v’s could not convert from the barrage for the impressive attacking moves and that how the game ended. V’s disappoint to be empty handed but pleased with the performance.
