Third-time lucky for Boston Rugby Club?

BOSTON Rugby Club will be hoping it’s third-time lucky... after having their home clash with Castle Donington postponed yet again.

For the second week running, the visitors pulled out of their Midlands 5 East (North) contest, citing a lack of available players.

League rules state that if the opposition are given significant notice, the match must be replayed.

Frustratingly for Boston, this is the second consecutive week Donington have done the same.

On Saturday Boston travel to play University of Derby.

They will host Castle Donington the following weekend in their rearranged clash.

BOSTON under 16s earned a hard-fought 12-7 victory over Bourne on Sunday.

After victory at Bourne earlier this season, the Blue and Whites knew their opponents would offer a tough contest.

But the hosts also had to battle the swirling Boardsides wind which made passing difficult.

Sam Johnson - after a steady and effective forward move combining ruck and maul - drove the ball over the try line to give Boston the lead.

Tom Andrews converted, but Bourne levelled at 7-7 before the break.

However, man of the match John Peng earned victory in the second half with a try.

BOSTON under 14s recorded their first victory of the season – a 46-10 success over Skegness.

Running against the wind in the first half, Oli Balsom ran in two individual tries which were converted by Matt Bray.

More tries from Matt Bray and James Andrews made the half time score 24-0.

Ben Clawson and man of the match Alex Roberts made sure they kept the score ticking over before a mini Skegness revival.

A further three tries from Boston ensured victory.

BOSTON: James Andrews, Oliver Balsom, Iain Borley, Matt Bray, Ross Chambers, Ben Clawson, Josh Cook, Harry Dean-Allen, Fabian Gillick, James Hurley Adam Johnson, Herbie Laidlaw, Luke Mcleod, Jack Power, Dominic Reynolds, Alex Roberts, Harry Stevens, Jordache Stones-Blackman, Charlie Taylor.
