Cinderford were well beaten by a Fylde side who produced their best rugby of the season so far to earn themselves a six-try bonus point victory.

The match started brightly for the visitors, but they failed to take a great opportunity to open the scoring and Fylde raced upfield with powerful centre Chris Briers charging through for their first try after 11 minutes play, which Ryan de la Harpe converted.

After this the home side took complete control of the match playing some scintillating rugby to create tries for Warren Spragg, a second for Briers and Oli Brennand with de la Harpe converting twice to make it 26-0 at the interval.

Cinderford had the better of the early stages after the re-start and winger Nev Codlin touched down for a try which Mark Davies converted after Jack Adams kicked through the home defence.De la Harpe then kicked a penalty before No8 Evan Stewart found space down the blindside to score an unconverted try.

The visitors were much more competitive in the second-half and Sam Arnott crossed for a try their efforts deserved, but Fylde responded with another penalty from de la Harpe and he competed the scoring by converting a second try from Spragg, who intercepted a loose pass and raced clear to score under the posts.
