Leinster can spoil Maggs' Irish return

THE most interesting thing about Moseley, from an Irish perspective, is that they are coached by former international Kevin Maggs.

Leinster A v Moseley, Donnybrook, Today (KO 6.0)

The inside-centre hardman provided the perfect foil for Brian O'Driscoll and was never more motivated than when playing England.

Now, Maggs takes the Birmingham club to Dublin to make amends for Leinster's 24-22 hit-and-run at Billesley Common last month.

Moseley are faring well in the English Championship – situated in a respectable ninth place – for a club with a rich history, but little in the way of achievement in the professional era. Leinster should be able to make it five straight wins in this Pool as long as they don't take this for granted as they look for back-to-back B&I Cups.

Leinster: D Hudson; S Coghlan-Murray, C O'Shea, J Coghlan, D Fanning; C Marsh, L McGrath (capt); E Byrne, B Byrne, T Furlong, B Marshall, Q Roux, J Conan, J van der Flier, L Auva'a.

Verdict: Leinster
