Cinderford scored seven converted tries as they overwhelmed a disappointing Fylde team whose poor away form continues.

An early penalty from Mark Davies was quickly followed by a try from home prop Nick Selway, with Davies landing the conversion.

Fylde responded with a well-taken try from Ben Rath, which Ryan de la Harpe converted.

Mike Wilcox put Nevaro Codlin away for Cinderford’s next try, before second-row Ed King went over, both of which were converted by Davies as the home side raced ahead.

The bonus point was secured just before half-time when Luke Allen touched down, with Davies adding the extras to make it 31-7 at the interval.

Fylde’s attempts to run the ball out of defence met with disaster soon after the re-start when turnover ball allowed Cinderford to score again, with prop Joe Smart going over. Davies converted.

The visitors staged a brief recovery with Rich Kenyon and Evan Stewart scoring tries, with Chris Johnson converting one to make the score 38-19 after 57 minutes played.

Cinderford completed their victory when winger Lloyd Stapleton intercepted and raced clear to score and replacement hooker Stuart Bailey went over for the final try, both of which were converted by Davies.

    Great result! We look so dangerous with ball in hand so let’s keep the hard fought possession in hand rather than kicking it away to the opposition. I understand the rationale of pressurising the opposition in their own half but if their coaches had done their homework and used their backs instead of their bulky forwards from the start we may have been in trouble. They had a 15 minute spell in the 2nd half where their backs cut us apart. They had pace to burn. Still it is nice to be able to criticise when we have just scored 50+ points. Another plus point was the strength and impact of the bench…none of the replacements weakened the team. Great win Cindy…lets have the same spirit and hunger next week.
