Grit, determination, but no points was the story of Boston Rugby Club under 15s’ second match of the season... losing 67-0 at Market Rasen.

An experienced host team gave Boston a lesson in team organisation and how to play in poor conditions, but the Blue and Whites stuck to their task manfully.

Jordache Stones-Blackman, the player of the match, again set the standard in defence with some good tackling, and both he and Joe Langford had a couple of promising runs.

BOSTON: Allen, Scuffham, Scott, Hardstaff, Curtis, Hendy, Langford, Ancell, King, Hobbs, Moody, Cook, Stones-Blackman, Clark, Baldam, Gray.

Boston’s Minis section were in action at Cleethorpes.

The under eights performed superbly, winning five and drawing one.

BOSTON: Pursey, Deamer, Townshend, Stewart, Booth, Fairman, Clark, Douglass, Welberry, Maltby, Pikett.
