ALY STILL PALLY WITH RED AND BLACK COACHES.

GLASGOW-bound Aly Muldowney has praised the Moseley coaches for helping him secure his dream of full-time rugby.

The 26-year-old brought the curtain down on his Red and Black career this week when he revealed he had signed a two-year deal with the Magners League outfit.

That severs a long-term connection with Midlands rugby for the Stafford-born lock who, having come late to the game, spent his formative years at Stourbridge before moving to Billesley Common in 2008. The former basketballer has enjoyed a meteoric rise since stepping into the Championship and now stands on the brink of Heineken Cup rugby.

But he insists he could not have done it without the help of Mose coaches Ian Smith, Don Caskie and forwards specialist John Caves.

"All the coaches helped me improve massively," Muldowney said.

Analysis "Ian is technically very good and Don has done an excellent job with the analysis showing us how they want the team to play. I have developed and that's got me the chance to play at a higher level.

"I am not going there just to make up the numbers, though. I stepped up a level at Stourbridge and Moseley and became one of the best players in the league so I've got to back myself up in Glasgow."

Muldowney will challenge Scotland locks Alastair Kellock and Richie Gray for game time.
