Moody became the 68th player to reach 50 Heineken Cup appearances to join the ERC elite, and he finished up drawing a match for only the second time in his European career.
The Ospreys and Tigers shared the spoils as their round 1 match finished 32-all. That result would have reminded Moody of the other occasion he ended up drawing a Heineken Cup Pool game.
Back in 2002, before regionalisation in Wales, Neath had held Leicester to a 16-all tie at the Gnoll. Leicester were the defending champions and had not expected the Welsh side to present such a stern test. In fact Leicester had to rely a typically impish try from Austin Healey a minute from the end of normal time.
Moody was involved in a draw, perhaps the greatest draw of Heineken Cup rugby. The semi-final with Cardiff Blues at the Millennium Stadium last season. But despite the two teams being inseparable on the scoreboard after 120 minutes, the result is a W for Leicester after a remarkable penalty shoot out.
Jordan Crane made the kick that delighted Moody and sent him to his third Heineken Cup final. However his only victory came in 2002, again in Cardiff, when his side edged out Munster 15-9.
