Boro put their recent disciplinary problems behind them with this hard fought win over BB. The game played in atrocious conditions looked more like bog snorkilling than rugby.


BB kicked off in the pouring rain and howling wind. BB opted to go to the corner from a penalty and captain Olly James playing in his new position of back row smashed his way over 0-5. The game slipped and slid on, Boro levelling the score with a try of their own, 5-5. Goal kicking was impossible, and it was going to be a game won on tries. Boro scored again when their second row ploughed over 10-5. BB went into the corner again and from the lineout James got his second try 10-10 at half time.
If it was possible, the game detrioated just like the pitch, as players struggled to keep their feet. With BB on the attack the Boro back intercepted to run nearly the length of the pitch to score the winning try, 15-1 The game by now had turned into a farce and the referee blew up. Thanks to all for a thoroughly enjoyable day out Next week is cup weekend and BB take a well earned rest.
