Boston christened its new field with a visit from old rival Wolfhounds. Boston scored first with a penalty before Wolfhounds answered with 3 tries.

Boston scored a try to keep the Wolfhounds in range before the Hounds opened it up with two converted tries to open the second half. Both teams made several substitutions and Boston started a comeback, scoring a try to get within 7 points with 6 minutes remaining and Wolfhounds down to 14 men. The Hounds stayed aggressive and an inch perfect wide pass brought them into the try zone and deflating Boston's hopes. Another try sealed the game and gave them a flattering final scoreline.
