A seven-try haul saw Boston Rugby Club earn maximum points and secure back-to-back wins following their 46-14 victory over Nottingham Moderns.

And, importantly, victory also saw the Blue and Whites move one place up to seventh in the Midlands 3 East (North) table.

Boston made the perfect start with full back Tom Andrews scoring in the corner after five minutes of play, the move initiated from a surging Ross Noble run and quick hands in the backs.

On 15 minutes a popped pass from Noble to back row colleague Will Scupham created a chance to score, but a try evaded the new recruit.

Boston were rewarded with a penalty in front of the posts which Tom Brooks converted to move the side 8-0 ahead.

Boston’s second try came from a counter attack in their own 22, as Michael Baldwin and Anthony Buckberry carried the ball up the park.

A flowing move was sealed when Travis Cross went over for a 13-0 lead.

With Marc Miles sin binned, Boston began the second half with 14 men, but a tap penalty saw Noble muscle and pirouette his way over the line.

Mark Hodgson and Will Scupham added tries, both converted by Brooks, as Boston led 32-0.

Moderns replied with two converted tries before Boston rounded the contest off in style, Liam Smith and Jake Brooks getting on the scoresheet.

On Saturday, Boston travel to play local rivals Skegness.

Kick off is at 2.15pm.
