Fylde 31, Blackkeath 16

Fylde kicked off the National League One campaign with a bonus point win over Blackheath at the Woodlands.

For much of the contest, they were in control, but lost their lead early in the second half as the visitors went 16-14 in front - Fylde had led at the break after tries by Gareth Rawlings and Tom Burtonwood.

The loss of the lead proved only temporary as Fylde went on to out-score their rivals by four tries to one.

Chris Johnson and Oli Brennand crossed for tries in the second half, which gave Fylde vital leeway.

There were four sin-binnings, three for Fylde, Dave Fairbrother, Dan Birchall and Paul Arnold.
