Boston Rugby Club have the opportunity to move themselves nine points clear of the Midlands 3 East (North) relegation zone tomorrow.

The Blue and Whites - currently fourth bottom in the standings - travel to face Mellish, who sit two places and five points behind them.

Victory for Boston would see Willem Jonker’s side create an eight-point gap between them and the drop zone, while a bonus point could see that gap widen to nine.

Mellish have won one of their contests to date, while injury-hit Boston - who are still climatising to life following last season’s promotion - have two victories from eight matches.
