Boston Rugby Club’s under 16s beat their Kesteven counterparts 36-0 on Sunday.

Pitch conditions were just playable by kick off after the overnight frost.

Kesteven kicked off with Boston taking immediate control of the game, forcing Kesteven to give away a penalty, which Matt Bray kicked through the posts.

Players in the Boston lineout were on form, Jack Power being lifted into position and forcing the ball down into the hands of Tom Howlett who teed up Olli Balsom to score his first try of the game.

Bray suffered a shoulder injury during a tackle and was replaced by Harry Dean-Allen.

James Andrews picked up the ball off a scrum and, running straight through Kesteven’s defence, he scored under the sticks.

The try was successfully converted by Herbie Laidlaw.

The second half saw Boston determined to add to the score and Jake Craft took control of a turn over ball, scoring a try which Matt Bray converted.

With Bray back on and replacing Dean-Allen and the injured Andrews replaced by Theo Saisbury, Boston kept up the pressure.

A scrum on Kesteven’s five-metre line was cleared with a kick, but Balsom caught the loose ball before running in his second try.

Bray again successfully converted.

Alex Roberts charged through Kesteven’s forwards to score his first try of the season.

Again Bray kicked for two points.

Men of the Match were Alex Roberts and Olli Balsom.
