Camp Hill 25-26 Moseley Oak

Camp Hill is a difficult ground to visit and win. They are a tenacious side and defend with enthusiasm.

An away bonus point win was therefore a significant achievement.

Despite an early promising start from Moseley the hosts scored the first points. Firstly a penalty and then a well worked try on the far left which left the score at 10-0.

Moseley rallied and built a number of attacking positions close to the Camp Hill line but got no points to show for it until 37 minutes when flanker Greg Naptin drove under the posts for a converted try.

Camp Hill completed the first half with another penalty. 13-5.

After 8 minutes of the second half a small scuffle between players ended with Camp Hill's number 7 striking the head of a Moseley player with a red card the result. 

Moseley sprang into action with tries for James Hare and Paul Cox both converted by Tom Johnson.

What came next was unexpected. Firstly a missed kick off reception and many missed tackles let to a Camp Hill try and shortly after a penalty try was awarded making the score 25-21 with 5 minutes to go.

Moseley came in waves of attack and finally Paul Cox got his second.

Camp Hill had an opportunity to steal the game but missed a penalty in the dying seconds.

A good 5 point win, however many chances went begging with try scoring opportunities not taken. Oak need to attend to this quickly.
