Borough adapted well to the foul conditions and were well worth a success secured by two tries from Sam Crooks, one from Ryan Morris and two conversions from Rob Jacobs.

Borough Head Coach Phil Powell said: “We had our physicality back and we also looked more dangerous in attack. It was more like how we played last season and that was pleasing as it was a rough old afternoon weather-wise.

“We dominated the game and deserved the win.”

Peterborough Lions played with plenty of spirit as usual in their Midlands Premier Division game with Paviours in Bretton, but they just lack the forward power to take on some physical top-flight packs and went down 52-17.

Lions aren’t struggling to score tries at least with Jack Ashall claiming his first for the club, while Marius Andrijauskas and Weir Filikitonga also crossed.

Filikitonga also added a conversion.
