Caldy are back in action this weekend at home against relegation rivals Cambridge after last weekend's washout against Ampthill.

The Ravers will be looking to break the bad run they have been on for the last few weeks. The injury crisis seeems no nearer ending with the long time absentee's coming back at the start of March.

Athough the last few weeks have been difficult, Caldy have been unfortunate in a number of the games, particularly at home. With three away games in consecutive weeks the team will be looking for the famous Caldy roar against the team from Granchester Road who Caldy beat 27-11 in October on their way to the top of the league.

The last time Cambridge visited Paton Field it was a very tight game with the visitors coming out on top thanks to a defensive mistake in the final few minutes which resulted in the winning try.

Cambridge were part of a great game last weekend coming back from a 22-3 defecit at half time to beat Championship chasing Blackheath in a dramatic second half to win 27-22. With Caldy and Sale not playing it gives Steve Jackson's side an advantage in the battle to stay in National 1 for another year, although the visitors will be wary of the fact they haven't won back to back games since November.

England Counties U20 international Fly Half Ben Penfold is a player to watch out for. He was voted National 1's player of the week last time out.

Caldy's first XV will be looking for inspration from the 2nd XV who open the second half of their season this weekend at home to Fylde Hawks after last weekend's away game at Preston Grasshoppers also fell foul of the bad weather.
