Borough won 9-6 thanks to three Byron Van Uden penalties. Heavy rain and a strong wind didn’t hekp the pursuit of tries and led to two contrasting halves.

The home side dominated territory in the first half, but crucially Borough reached the interval level at 6-6.

The city side controlled the econd-half, but only had on more successful Van Uden kick to show for their efforts.

Peterborough Lions have lost four games out of five, their latest defeat was a 45-15 thrashing at Oadby Wyggstonians on Saturday.
