Boston Rugby Club are the Midlands 4 East (North) champions following their 10-try demolition of Worksop, who began the day in second spot.

The 60-0 scoreline saw the Blue and Whites move 14-points clear of Skegness in the Midlands 4 East (North) table, writes John Fletcher.

And victory tasted even sweeter for Willem Jonker’s unbeaten side considering they kicked off the campaign bottom of the pile following their 12-point deduction, due to failing to complete their last match of last season at Ollerton.

This Boston side’s strangehold on the division is evident by their unassailable lead at the top and their staggering points difference.

Boston are currently on +531, 290 better off than Long Eaton, who have the second most impressive positive tally.

In front of a large home crowd, the team were intent on putting on a show.

Boston started the match with the advantage of the wind and it would take just 12 minutes before a well-executed line out catch and drive saw hooker Billy Wilson open the scoring.

Tom Brooks converted before touching down himself for a 12-0 lead.

Centre Jake Brooks scored on 35 minutes, after a loose clearance kick was returned with interest.

His brother Tom converted once more, before doing the same after winger Perry Cumber scored just before half time.

The Blue and Whites then added 36 points after the interval.

Perversely, the home team found playing into the elements easier than before and put on the style to record a six-try blitz to entertain the home supporters.

Accurate passing, good handling, astute lines of attacking running - all hallmarks of Jonker’s vision and mantra - were displayed.

Tom Brooks scored before converting his own try and a classic number eight pick-up-and-drive over from Shaun Hughes followed.

As Boston picked up the pace and started to find their rhythm, winger Michael Baldwin came off the bench to score a brace.

The coup de grace saw fly half Paul Jarvis run half the length of the pitch to score.

Not to be outdone, centre Tom Brooks fittingly rounded off the proceedings with another solo try, going under the posts to record his hat-trick and end the match 60 points to the good.

On Saturday, Boston host Keyworth at the Princess Royal Sports Arena (KO 3pm).

BOSTON: Kemp. Wilson, Seargent, Enderby, Eldin, Stokes, Noble, Hughes, Jonker. Jarvis, J. Brooks, T. Brooks, Cumber, Smith, Cross; Replacements: Doig, Za Chapman, Baldwin, Deamer, Hodgeson.
