While Fylde struggled in the first half in the North East, Blaydon put the frighteners on Fylde as they enjoyed a 24-21 lead over Cambridge.

Another of their rivals in the lower reaches of the league standings, Hull Ionians trailed narrowly 15-13 at the hands of Rosslyn Park.

Fylde's points in the first half came from a Greg Smith penalty and a Matt Lamprey.
