CALDY were heavily beaten on their first ever trip to Doncaster Knights thanks to two tries each from Alex Dolly and Maliq Holden.

The home side were not going to give anything away after taking the lead three minutes into the game after a good phase play from Billy McBryde and Maliq released Holden who was able to drive over.

The game became tight and Doncaster were unable to break down the Caldy defence until the midway point in the first half when the ball went wide to John Kelly who was able to find Dolly who had great support to go under the posts.

At this point Doncaster were in their stride and Holden went over for his second of the afternoon with 25 minutes on the watch.

Caldy were awarded a penalty try just before the half hour mark after a maul on the line saw Doncaster number 8 Kelly, sent to the Sin Bin.

In the early moments of the second half Caldy got more into the game and were rewarded after 48 minutes through a try from Ollie Hearn after a maul from the lineout saw the Caldy man go over.

This sparked the home side into life and they restored their lead and claimed the win bonus point after 51 minutes when Dolly got his second of the afternoon after some great play from Alec Lloyd-Seed.

The tries then came at regular intervals as the home side showed why they were one of the pre-season favourites for promotion.

A fortunate bounce of the ball was kicked through to Connor Edwards who was able to touchdown in the corner after 56 minutes.

Two further Doncaster tries came before the final whistle to put the icing on their cake and send the majority of the crowd home happy.

Caldy now have next weekend off before they start the new year with back to back home games. The first is the re-arranged fixture against league leaders and last seasons Champions Eailing Trailfinders on January 7.
