Rosslyn Park 26, Caldy 10

CALDY'S final away trip of 2018 ended in disappointment as they were outplayed by an in-form Rosslyn Park in awful conditions at Priory Lane on Saturday.

Rosslyn pressured the Caldy line right from the kick-off and it was clear that the London side were up for the contest, mauling over the line in the fifth minute through Greg Gillanders with Greg Lound converting with ease despite the blustery conditions.

Caldy, who have only won two of their last seven games, were sparked into life.

A penalty from Ben Jones in the 10th minute brought the Ravers back into the game however that was as good as they got before half-time.

The home side ran in two further tries before the break, through Doran-Jones and Ellis.

Caldy made the game more of a contest in the second half but as they pressed gaps opened up and Rosslyn's Amesbury broke free to score the bonus point try for the home side.

A try from Stuart Cross on 68 minutes was nothing more than a consolation.

With weary limbs and battling the elements, Caldy weren't able to break through again.

At the final whistle Rosslyn were able to celebrate their fourth win on the bounce, whereas Caldy remain in seventh place on 41 points at the midway point of the season, and will have to dust themselves down, lick their wounds to go again this coming Saturday in the pre-Christmas Cheshire Derby match against Sale FC who are in poor form themselves losing at home to Ampthill on Saturday and only a point above the relegation zone 10 points behind Caldy.

As a big crowd is expected supporters are advised to arrive early, gates open at 11.30am for a 2pm kick off. Caldy will be looking to end 2018 with a victory.
