Losing start to Manxman's pro rugby career

Will Keenan starts as Moseley go down 37-27

It was a losing start to his professional career for Manx rugby player Will Keenan yesterday.

Playing at number seven, in the back row of the scrum, he made his debut for Moseley in the Greene King IPA Championship, the second tier of English rugby's league system.

They lost 37-27 to Rotherham Titans, who now sit fourth in the table.

Tweeting this morning, he said, 'Gutted to lose yesterday when it was ours for the taking!', and thanked the fans for their vocal support for the team.

Moseley are bottom, level on points with Cornish Pirates but with an inferior points difference.
