Boro away to team top of the league, although lost result they gave a great account of themselves, scoring six tries. A match report by Harry Hanson.


Possibly the furthest away venue of the season Boro shed their travel journey and immediately went on the attack from kick off and took play into opposition 5metres area where Boro’s right winger, Liam Lloyd showed his considerable speed and crossed the line for the game’s opening Try after only 7minutes, unfortunately the Referee declined to give the conversion by Nathan Coop. Then on only 15minutes play host team took over and crossed the line for their first Try, which they also converted to take the lead. But they didn’t stop there and only a minute later host team left winger went over for their second converted Try to stretch their lead. Then Boro once again put a spring in their step and their scrum pushed to cross the opposition try line and Sam Dickinson brilliantly touched down and scored Boro’s second Try, still no conversion. But unfortunately, as before the host team hit back and soon obtained their 3rd Try but this time without conversion. Still Boro came back again on attack with Murphy Holt, prop forward making a strong run through the opposition. Then towards half time the Host team once again took charge and scored their 4th Try and this time also converted. However, Boro were not to be out done and just before half time , in fact on 45minutes play , Boro’s new Wing Forward, David Kearns, formerly wing three-quarter , went over the line for Boro’s 3rd Try and converted by Nathan Coop, to make the score at half time 26pts to 17pts, well played Boro.

Player changes at the beginning of the second half saw Boro’s David Kearns and Chris Kolbuck replaced by C Kenworthy and J Jones both from the under 18s Team. Unfortunately for Boro right at the beginning of the second half Host team once again over for their 5th Try and conversion. Still Boro hit back once again with excellent forward distance kick from Fullback and Captain, Chris Park followed shortly after with good running by Boro’s Threequarters Adam Wayne and N. Mason. Again however the Host team hit back once again and obtained a further 7points to stretch their lead once again. Still Boro didn’t give up and Stuart Bairstow and Matthew Goldthorpe were seen carrying the ball forward strongly and ultimately Boro’s number back row number 8, Ted Chadwick crossed the line for a further Boro converted Try, brilliant. Unfortunately, as before in the match the Host Team came right back to obtain yet another converted Try. Likewise, for Boro they hadn’t finished yet and new young player, C. Kenworthy showed future promise as he also crossed the line for yet another Boro Try, unfortunately no conversion. Just before the final whistle once again yet another good attacking run by Chris Park before passing the ball onto winger Nathan Coop for yet another great attacking run.

This was a remarkable performance by all the Boro players, with such a great difference in league position they competed extremely well and also showed they have new younger players ready to come into the Team.
