A LAST-minute try by Birmingham Moseley's Jacques La Roux sent Caldy crashing out of National One after a performance that proved the Ravers will be a force in National 2 North next season.

The blustery conditions were not in Caldy's favour in the first half and Moseley took an early lead with a try through Sam Brown after just five minutes and it looked like it could be a long afternoon for the visitors.

However, the converted try seemed to inspire Caldy into action and as they went through their phases the quality in the side shone through and Nick Royle was unlucky not to score down the wing after a last-ditch tackle.

The Ravers were rewarded on 23 minutes after a very powerful push from the scrum and Harrison Crowe was able to touchdown just over the whitewash, however Ben Jones missed the conversion into the wind.

The visitors continued to push forward and gained the lead four minutes before half-time.

This time the ball got to Rob O'Donnell, who was able to get the ball across the line to the delight of the many travelling supporters.

The second-half was extremely tight with both sides being unable to gain any flow and both teams defending well with Caldy looking for what would be a decisive third try and the frustration showed on the field although the belief was still there.

When Harrison Crowe was cited for an incident in the scrum, Moseley took the opportunity to take a quick penalty and the ball got to La Roux who scored to send the home side into raptures and the Caldy players to their knees.

The result from the Sale FC Cambridge fixture was Caldy's last hope but the news that came through from Heywood Road was not in the Ravers favour after Cambridge got the result they needed to remain in the league, and condemn Caldy to relegation.
