Moseley director of rugby John Beale has censured county selectors for not including more of his players in the North Midlands squad which has won through to Twickenham for the second successive year.
Only fly-half Ollie Thomas and back-row forward Steven Halbert from Moseley's ranks are likely to appear in Sunday's County Championship Shield final against Hertfordshire after winger James Aston was forced to withdraw through injury.
Beale, who has overseen a turnaround in Moseley's fortunes this season, criticised officials for not choosing men like Paul Coles, Adam Caves, Mark Evans, Tom McIntosh, Alex Hadley and Carl Colvin.
He said: "Some of those players have not been written to or asked about their availability. Any representative game is good experience in my view. I am thinking about the benefit some players would get from exposure to county rugby."
He also pointed to his own record with North Midlands and said that he would liked to have been consulted about potential representatives from his club.
"The people who run it should know I have always been someone who has supported it," he said.
"I have worked for them myself for the best past of 20 years and played for them too. I am a bit miffed that I have not been consulted."
But chairman of selectors Terry Rees stood by North Midlands' policy and said that several of his committee, and county captain Duncan Hughes, had been present at the Moseley-Stourbridge match in March where they approached many of the Moseley team about turning out for the county.
"Only James Aston and Steven Halbert made themselves available at that point," said Rees. "Ollie did not respond positively, neither did Adam Caves or Carl Colvin."
Caves and Thomas subsequently backtracked on their decision and while the standoff played in last weekend's win over Oxfordshire, Caves is not thought to be a contender for the final.
Rees added that North Midlands had a team-bonding exercise in April and two training sessions which anyone wanting to play for them should have attended.
The match kicks off on Sunday at 1pm.
