Unbeaten in National 2 North, league leaders Caldy take on Hull at Paton Field this Saturday with a 2.15pm kick off. 

Caldy’s Director of Rugby Gareth Davies is hoping for a large and vociferous support to help drive the Wirral side to victory against a very good Hull team.

He said: “Last week against Luctonians it seemed that all of Leominster turned out to support their team and it certainly drove them on. We would like to create that atmosphere at Caldy’s Paton Field.

“It makes a huge difference to the players. When a big city side like Hull comes to Paton Field it reminds us all just how far Caldy has come in its rugby journey and we hope we can share the experience with a big crowd on Saturday.”

The Yorkshire side sits in mid table in National 2 North, but such is the level of competition with 44 points they are just five points above Luctonians who currently occupy one of the relegation places.

However, their league position is deceptive. Hull have won six of their last eight matches and they boast the third best defensive record in the league with their points conceded total just being slightly inferior to second placed Fylde.

Hull’s Director of Rugby Gary Pearce credited last week’s victory over Chester to the strength of their forward pack and in particular their impressive front row which has been boosted by the return from injury of tight head prop Ben Bootham and the signing of 32 year old ex Premiership prop Charlie Beech.

The 135kg prop has enjoyed spells at Wasps, Bath and latterly Championship sides Yorkshire Carnegie and Coventry before arriving at Hull.

Hull’s recent run of form started in late November with a win away at Fylde’s Woodlands ground when the South Blackpool side were then league leaders.

Hull will be hoping to repeat the feat by downing the current league leaders Caldy at Paton Field this weekend.
