The visitors, to their credit, never gave up battling but were woefully outclassed by superior opposition.

Borough rested a handful of leading players with Zak McClure, Ross Chamberlain, Rob Mould, Jamie Dingle and Owain Pearce all given a break, but still managed to run in 12 tries - eight of them converted - in a very one-sided final home fixture of the season.

Borough’s tries were scored by Joe Andresen (2), Michael Bean (2), Sam Crooks, Josh Myles, Mooki Tshepo-Olebile, Ryan Adams (2), Sam Cowell, Levan Stapleton and Dewi Pearce. Matt Newman kicked five conversions and Andresen three.
