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.
