Boro still looking for the win
Week 8 and this time a visit from Paviors
This week saw Boro host Paviors at Cut Throat Lane, Boro were looking for a win to end a series of losses. However, as has been the pattern this season there were a number of changes to the team. In the pack Shaun Mackie came into the front row, a new second row combination of Jon Cartwright and Chris Shipman started and in the back row Dan Sims shifted to 8 and Joel Smith came in on the flank. The backs unfortunately saw Pete Vickers go down injured in the warm up so Tyler Chant move to 10 with Steven Gall coming in from the wing to outside centre, and Andy Seaton coming in at full back.
And now to the game, except........I didn't really make any notes!
The first half saw Boro start off solidly retaining possession but a nasty injury to Dan Sims saw a reshuffle of the pack with Alex Booth coming off the bench for his first appearance of the season. However, it was Paviors who drew first blood with a try to give them the lead. The rest of the half saw a lot of huff and puff from both sides but with the wind making it difficult no side could really get a foothold in the game.
The second half started off with Paviors going down the hill and they took full advantage scoring another try to extend their advantage. Boro soon answered back, a penalty advantage saw Tyler Chant dink a kick through, he collected his own kick and offloaded inside to Andy Seaton for a try which Tyler converted. Boro now with their tails up kept the pressure on Paviors but some strong resolute defending so Boro come away with nothing. The final nail in the coffin saw Paviors come up with another try which Boro this time couldn't answer.
Wellingborough 7 v 17 Paviors
Well that makes the game this Sat a must win! Its fair to say that there is no lack off effort but its just that final decision that seems to be missing. Watching Boro you have that feeling that it will click and when it does someone will suffer.
