Rugby Lions (17) 30
Fylde (6) 16
[ALLIED DUNBAR PREMIERSHIP TWO]

The Lions continue to claw their way up the league table but though this margin was a comfortable one, it was still a scrappy affair.

Rugby outscored the visitors by four tries to one, but seldom reached top gear and suffered through a string of penalties against them.

They were in front within five minutes through a pushover try when Fylde were forced to conceded a five metres scrum. No. 8 Chris Tarbuck got the touchdown and Martyn Davies converted.

Matt Tetlow responded with a drop goal for Fylde, but Lions restored their grip when the second row Matt Field crashed over from a line out.

Alun Peacock kicked a penalty for the visitors, but shortly before the interval Mark Ellis sprinted home for a second unconverted try for the Lions.

Davies increased the margin with a huge penalty goal from half way in the first minute of the second half and though Peacock replied with a penalty goal it was only a temporary hiccup in Rugby's progress.

After two pushover attempts they switched the ball wide for Eddie Saunders to score near the posts to leave Davies with a simple conversion.

Davies added another penalty near the end, before Fylde's fly half Ian Barclay scored their only try which Peacock converted.
