Caldy travel to Loughborough Students in their first fixture of 2019 hoping that the New Year brings better luck after only winning two of the last eight league matches in 2018.

Despite the poor run Caldy have won eight and lost eight of their 16 league games so far this season scoring 42 points in the process and will want to sustain 7th in the table over the coming months.

The players had a good break since the disappointing loss to Sale FC the Saturday before Christmas, with a number of players coming back from injury joining former Caldy stars in a boxing day charity match in aid of fallen friends.

Harrison Crowe is making good progress in his return from long term injury with Harrison being a month ahead of schedule.

Players returning from injury but not quite ready for first team action will be looking to get match practice this weekend for the 2nd XV as they look to seal top spot in the 2nd team league against local rivals and second placed Chester when they play at Hare Lane on Saturday with a kick off of 2pm.

Students have had a tough season only winning 3 of their league games so far, losing heavily to Caldy when they visited Paton Field in September 2018 with Caldy coming away with a 43-19 victory scoring six tries in the process.

They have had hard luck in a number of matches losing against Cambridge by three points last time out, and Caldy will be looking to continue their good record at the University Stadium and spoil the party as Students start celebrations to mark the centenary of the club this year.

A win for Caldy would see the Ravers move as many as 15 points clear of the relegation zone depending on the results of others.
