That Friday Feeling – 11th November 2022

Tomorrow Paton Field has a double header with the 2nd xv playing old rivals Preston Grasshoppers in the Cotton Traders Premier League with a 12 o’clock kick off, followed by the 1st xv playing Cornish Pirates in the Championship Cup with 2 pm kick off.

Caldy’s Director of Rugby Gareth Davies is looking forward to the challenge that ‘Hoppers’ and ‘Pirates’ will be bringing to Paton Field. “Ever since I can remember Preston Grasshoppers have been one of the very best sides in the Northwest and they will bring a strong challenge for our second xv. Cornish Pirates who are first time visitors to Paton Field have been one of the strongest sides in the Championship in the last few years. It promises to be a Saturday full of top-class rugby at Paton Field.
