BOSTON Rugby Club’s under 14s travelled to Skegness in high spirits.. and returned with a 53-0 victory.

Alex Roberts continued to make storming forward runs and captain Matt Bray marshalled his team well.

Despite a late rally from the bigger Skegness forwards, they were unable to break down the Boston defence.

Try scorers were Oli Balsom (four), Fabian Gillick (two), Jack Power (two) and Herbie Laidlaw.

Matt Bray converted four of the tries.

BOSTON: Andrews, Balsom, Borley, Bray, Chambers, Clawson, Cook, Dean-Allen, Gillick, Hurley, Johnson, Laidlaw, Power, Roberts, Stones-Blackman, Taylor.
