Caldy secured victory away to Birmingham Moseley on Saturday thanks to a try from Sam Dickinson to move up to second in National 1.

The game started off brightly for the visitors, taking the lead through a try from Adam Aigbokhe in the opening minutes of the game, after breaking from the ruck to score,

The ever reliable Ben Jones slotted away the extras.

The game then became a bit scrappy with both sides conceding penalties and Caldy holding just a single point lead on the half hour thanks to two Moseley penalties from Elliot Bale.

Caldy had a period of attacking rugby which was repelled by the strong Birmingham defence, reducing the visitors to a single Ben Jones penalty to take a four point lead into the break.

Moseley came out the brighter of the two sides and were rewarded after a superb long pass saw full back Tom Benjamin score in the corner to give the home side the lead for the only time in the afternoon.

Caldy’s resiliance has won them a lot of praise this season and it showed in the final quarter of the game, closing down a number of strong Birmingham attacks with the home side unable to push the final ball over the line.

Caldy were able to break and with one of the final plays of the game Dickinson crossed to take the points back to the Wirral.

The away supporters who made the trip agreed that this victory was one of the toughest wins of the season but could be one of the most important.

Caldy are on a run of one defeat in 14 matches, with league-leaders Rosslyn Park the only team to beat the Ravers since the end of September.

They welcome Blackheath to Paton Field on Saturday, looking to secure the double over the London side for the first time. Kick off 2pm.
