BOSTON Rugby Club will be in Notts, Lincs and Derbyshire Cup action on Saturday.

The Blue and Whites face Nottinghamians at the Boardsides (KO 2.30pm).

The First XV, who top the Midlands 5 East (North), were without a game at the weekend, while the Development side’s clash against Sleaford was called off.

l BOSTON under eights took part in the Spalding festival on Sunday.

They were drawn in Pool A, alongside Spalding A, Stamford, Lincoln and Sleaford.

In game one, Boston allowed a very good Stamford too much freedom to run at them as they went down 7-0.

Boston were suffering the same problems against Spalding.

Willis and Roberts scored, but the hosts claimed a 4-2 win.

In game three, a completely different Boston emerged to play Lincoln.

In defence they played with a good line, closing the opposition down.

In attack, they were clinical, making some excellent mazy runs as they won 6-2, tries coming from Nicholson, Willis (two), Turner and Henson (two).

In their final pool game, Boston beat Sleaford 5-2, with Willis (two), Turner (two) and Young scoring for Boston.

This was enough to tie with Spalding in second place in the pool,but the hosts progressed on tries scored.

BOSTON: Vickers, Young, Willis, O’Callaghan, Roberts, Henson, Nicholson and Turner.
