The Boston Buccanneers have secured second spot in Rugby League’s Midland Premier today, without even taking to the field.

Opponents Derby City were unable to raise a team for the contest.

And with the game being awarded to the Buccs, it mean second place has been guaranteed for Mark Bean’s squad.

They now face Coventry Dragons in their cup semi-final next weekend.
