BOSTON Rugby Club wrapped up their home campaign with a 15-try demolition of struggling Rolls Royce, winning 89-5.

The Midlands 5 East (North) champions put on a show at the Boardsides, watched by a large crowd of vice presidents.

The Blue and Whites were keen to impress and, with an eye on next season, coach Willem Jonker was able to try out a number of players in different positions and re-introduce back row Russell Wright.

In perfect playing conditions, Boston scored after five minutes, centre Jake Brooks ghosting through the visitors’ defence to touch down.

Proof that training works, was in evidence as a new line-out move brought instant rewards, Billy Wilson storming over the whitewash to record the first of his four-try haul.

A returning Boston player, full back Rob Jones, scored the third try.

During the remaining onslaught, further tries were scored by wingers Perry Cumber (two) Michael Baldwin, Zak Chapman, fly half Darren Barratt and Wilson at number eight as Boston held a 55-0 half-time lead.

With the weather turning at the interval, it was not unsurprising that the second half failed to live up to the high tempo that had previously been set.

With replacements being introduced, and a lack of concentration and intensity, the game became loose and disjointed for long periods.

However, a further six tries were recorded, while Rolls Royce grabbed a consolation.

Another two came from Brooks while Wilson took his tally to four.

Back row Steve Loveley and Barratt added one apiece to conclude the Blue and Whites’ afternoon’s work.

Next week Boston travel to play Ollerton in their final league game.

BOSTON: Seargent, Phoneix, Deamer, Pedley, Eldin, Noble, Stokes, Wilson, Miles, Barratt, Cumber, J. Brooks, T. Brooks, Baldwin, Jones; replacements: Loveley, Kemp, Chapman, Enderby, Wright.
