Boston Rugby Club’s under 15s recorded a thumping 43-19 victory over Cleethorpes.

With the First XV’s match against rivals Horncastle failing to go ahead – due to their opponents’ inability to raise a side – the youngsters took centre stage.

After going 7-0 down early on, the Blue and Whites bounced back to take a convincing 24-12 interval lead.

Matt Bray and Ross Chambers combined to send James Andrews in at the corner before Oliver Balsom scored and Bray converted.

Bray then touched down himself before Cleethorpes responded with their second try.

However, on the stroke of half time, a penalty for a high tackle allowed Herbie Laidlaw to feed Perry Davey, who crashed over before Bray converted.

The visitors started the second half strongly, but number eight Ben Clawson’s turnover saw Boston break and Balsom score.

Bray again kicked between the posts.

Andrews got on the score sheet again following a pinpoint chip forward from Chambers and outran his marker to score.

After Cleethorpes conceded a number of penalties, Clawson scored to put Boston 43-12 ahead,

The visitors scored the final try of the game but Boston were comfortable winners.

Charlie Taylor was named as man of the match.

BOSTON: Andrews, Balsom, Borley, Bray, Chambers, Clawson, Cook, Curtis, Davey, Dean-Allen, Keal, Laidlaw, Langford, McNulty, Power, Roberts, Scuffham, Stevens, Stones-Blackman, Taylor.
