BOSTON Rugby Club’s First XV thumped Castle Donington 83-0 as the visitors felt the wrath of the Blue and Whites’ previous week’s defeat.

After narrowly losing their 100 per cent record at Keyworth seven days earlier, the Midland 5 league leaders reacted like a bear with a sore head, taking their anger out on their guests.

Three previous postponements meant this contest was a long time in the making, but after biding their time, relentless Boston scored 13 tries and nine conversions on their way to the rout.

Billy Wilson opened the scoring after five minutes.

Darryn Barratt side stepped his way over the white wash before winger Perry Cumber also got in on the act.

Straight from the re-start, Travis Cross zig-zagged his way through the Donington squad to touch down.

And not to be outdone by brother Tom - whose accurate kicking was adding to the points total - Jake Brooks went over the try line.

At the interval, Boston were comfortable 35-0 ahead.

But more was to come after the break, with Wilson beginning the second half as he did the first, with a try.

Tom Brooks wasn’t content to rack up points with the boot and touched down himself from a training ground move.

The forwards got on the scoreboard for the next two tries, both from number eight Jason Pedley.

With Boston 59-0 up, they were awarded a penalty, which centre Steve Bourne scored as he crossed the line.

However, Boston’s fine afternoon took a turn when - at 64-0 up - captain Marc Miles was sent off for dissent, following what was deemed to have been a dangerous tackle.

This occurred two minutes after a yellow card for Darryn Barratt, dished out for a tackle which was also deemed to have been dangerous, leaving Boston down to 13 men.

But 10 minutes later Jack Stokes strode over for his try and Tom Brooks added his second from a quickly-taken penalty.

Boston’s last try came from Barratt, who had returned following his sin bin.
