Hartpury College 39, Fylde 12
Fourteen-man Fylde suffered a heavy reverse at the hands of Hartpury College, who were always in control
Fylde were held up in traffic on the way to the ground, as a result of which the kick-off was delayed.
And it looked as though the visitors were feeling the effects as they went 12-0 down in the first 11 minutes as Hartpury scored two tries and a conversion.
A penalty at the end of the first quarter extended the home side’s lead to 15-0.
Hartpury went on to consolidate their advantage in this bonus point win, Fylde’s cause not helped by suffering a sending-off for the second week in succession.
Fylde’s tries came from Oli Brennand and Warren Spragg.
