The Boston Buccaneers are on the hunt for league leaders Leicester Storm.

The Buccs - currently second in Rugby League’s Midlands Premier - travel to face the team one place above them on Saturday.

With 10 matches played, Leicester have accumulated 18 points, having won nine and lost one of their contests.

Boston trail by four points, with seven victories and three defeats so far.

They received a walkover victory this weekend as opponents Buxton failed to raise a team.

The Buccaneers not only want a good result to keep their title hopes alive, but also to maintain breathing space between them and third-placed Sherwood Wolf Hunt, who are currently four points adrift.

Kick off for Saturday’s match will be at 2.30pm.
