BOSTON Rugby Club’s Midlands 5 East (North) campaign came to an abrupt end on Saturday.

With the Blue and Whites – who top the table - well in front, hosts Ollerton walked off the field midway through the second half.

The Rugby Football Union’s website currently lists the result as a postponement.

However, it would seem unlikely that the match will be replayed.

A Boston Rugby Club statement said: “We do not wish to comment until the referee has sent in his report.”

The match may be an anti-climax to a successful season for Willem Jonker’s men, but there was something to cheer at the Princess Royal Sports Arena this week as Boston’s Marc Miles and Travis Cross represented Lincolnshire against Derbyshire.

Cross scored a try for the Yellowbellies.

Also, ex-Boston full back Jordan Cleaver has been selected for the Notts, Lincs and Derbyshire under 20s National County Championships squad.

He is currently at Nottingham Rugby Academy.

l BOSTON RFC’s under 14s travelled to Cleethorpes – and felt hard-done by following a 27-21 defeat.

The Blue and Whites’ youngsters felt a number of decisions by the referee went against them.

However, they fought on and put in a good account of themselves with Josh Cook, Alex Roberts and Oli Balsom each scoring tries.

Matt Bray converted all three.

Alex Roberts was named man of the match.

BOSTON: Andrews, Balsom, Borley, Bray, Chambers, Clawson, Cook, Dean-Allen, Hurley, Johnson, Keal, Mcleod, Power, Roberts, Scuffham, Taylor.

l BOSTON under eights completed a successful season with two victories and a defeat against Bourne.

In their first game, Boston enjoyed some good possession, winning 9-5.

Tries came from Willis (four), Turner, Henson (three) and Vickers.

In game two, Boston were caught napping too many times and went down 8-7.

Vickers (two), Willis (two), Young, Nicholson and Henson scored for Boston.

In game three, Boston pulled their socks up won the game 6-3, with Turner, Willis (three), Nicholson and Vickers scoring.

BOSTON: Turner, Willis, Young, Nicholson, Roberts, O’Cllaghan, Henson, Vickers.

l THE Boston under sevens drew 5-5 and lost 5-3 with Bourne in two nine-a-side clashes.

BOSTON: Hurley, Elms, Rooney, Douglass, Daft, Pearson, Richards, Ward, Dodsley.
