Bromsgrove geared up for under the lights clash at Moseley Oak

BROMSGROVE’S director of rugby Dan Protherough says he is looking forward to taking on Moseley Oak under the lights tonight (Friday).

The Boars will be looking to claim a fifth consecutive Midlands One West victory against sixth-placed Moseley who Protherough’s side beat 29-10 at Finstall Park in October last year.

A win at the Billesley Common Rugby Complex would set Bromsgrove up nicely for next weekend’s huge clash away to second-placed Burton.

However, Protherough told the Standard the focus is fully on Moseley.

“We have just got to worry about Friday for now because the Burton game won’t matter if we do not play well,” he said.

“It is important we focus on Moseley before turning our attentions to Burton.

“We just want to keep building, playing well and going upwards.

“Friday’s game is very important so we need to try and get maximum points from it.”

The Boars picked up their fourth consecutive win on Saturday with a comprehensive 64-7 success at basement boys Wolverhampton.

Bromsgrove dominated from the outset and the game was pretty much over at half-time as Protherough’s side raced into a 42-0 lead.

Ed Spalding led the scoring with a hat-trick while Ollie Bache (2), James Martin, Jamie Atkin, Cameron Simpson and Jake Abbott also crossed the whitewash.

Whiteman showed his accuracy with the boot, notching up seven conversions while a penalty try completed Bromsgrove’s scoring.

“We put on a really good display, especially in the first half because we were playing up the slope and against the wind,” said Protherough.

“Having the game dead and buried by half-time was huge for us, especially being away from home.”
