CALDY made it three wins on the bounce in rugby union's Championship with an impressive 29-17 victory at Nottingham on Friday night.

Caldy deservedly took the lead after 10 minutes when Nottingham's Jordan Olowofela was sent to the sin bin. Caldy took a quick lineout and the maul was driven over the line with Ollie Hearn grounding the ball for the opening try of the evening.

Despite having the extra man, Caldy were unable to take advantage and were pegged back after Ryan Olowofela finished off a well worked move slipping through a gap in the defence to score under the posts.

Nottingham were on top for the second quarter of the game but failed to take advantage and Caldy were able to punish after another driving maul saw Hearn go over for his second try two minutes before half time.

In the second half, Caldy came out looking to stamp their mark on the game and scored a try 10 minutes from the restart after Chris Pilgrim ran through a gap in the Nottingham defence and extended the advantage.

This inspired Nottingham to push for a try of their own which came just four minutes later when David Williams scored after replacement Morgan Bunting broke the Caldy defensive line allowing Williams to finish in the corner.

With Nottingham looking to reduce the lead further Caldy took advantage of a penalty on the hour mark to put the game out of the hosts reach.

Caldy then went in search of the four try bonus point, attacking the Nottingham try line with great regularity and were successful with just 15 minutes remaining when Sam Dickinson took advantage of another driving maul to go down in the corner.

Caldy's back line held firm and Nottingham were unable to mount a serious comeback in the final moments of the game. A try in the final minute by Michael Green was nothing more than consolation.
