Referee's Official Match Report

This was a fairly evenly matched encounter for most of the game. The home took their chances and scored two tried (goals) to one try. The visitors dominated the lines outs throughout and the scrums for 3/4th of the game. The home team began to hold their own in the last quarter which seem to hold the visitors out. The visitors just did not turn their possession into progress and scores.

Our Match Report

The boys where treated to an early 10am start down at the prestigious Moakley vs Boston Rugby.

The game started off as expected with a stalemate for the first 20 minutes. Lots of back and forth action in the middle of the pitch with neither team able to take control. With 15 minutes to go in the 1st, Boston was able to break through on a lineout and coupled with poor NS tackling, took what was a 10 meter gain into a 30 meter try to put Boston up 7-0.

The start of the 2nd half was more back and forth play with both teams gaining ground, but unable to punch through for a score. About half way through the 2nd, Boston was again able to break through the NS defense. Boston's #10, with what can only be described as pulled out of his ass, was able to chip a ball through the NS backline that generously bounced right into his mitts for a score that put Boston ahead 14-0.

NS fought back hard in the final 15 and was able to maul in a score from 10 out by Captain Timmy, but Boston proved to have the defense to stand up to NS and the rally was capped. Final score 14-5 Boston.

MOM-Oximus Prime for his all around ferocious work at the break down and continued dominance in the scrum.

*Shout out to the pack for their continued dominance in set pieces.*
