Your News Broadstreet 9 - Fylde 39

Referee: A. Jackson

Broadstreet had won 12 in a row in league fixtures before Saturdays encounter and unfortunately it proved to be unlucky 13 as visiting Fylde inflicted a heavy defeat on the Coventry side.

Broadstreet initially maintained their momentum during the opening minutes when their aggressive defence earned a penalty, duly converted by fly-half Danny Richards.

Fylde responded intelligently, using their centres to great effect in broken play and, after linking well in the backline, set up a superb converted try for winger Tommy Banks in the corner.

The game started stuttering with poor handling from both sides, however this was interrupted by a strong kick from 45 metres by Fylde fly-half Waywell.

This good work was hastily undone by Fylde forwards Alistair Atkinson and Dave Wilks, both sin-binned for serious foul play. Fylde had to weather a very mild storm as the home team failed to exert any pressure on the 13 man visitors, scoring just a penalty.

However, Fylde failed to learn from their ill discipline and lock Nick King received a third yellow just before half-time.

Both fly-halves traded penalties before the sin-binned man re-entered the match. Having a full compliment boosted Fylde and they quickly scored another converted try, an impressive break from winger Oliver Brennand being finished by flanker Laurie Smith.

Broadstreet followed Fylde’s example by bringing down an attacking maul and ‘Street’ skipper Eddie Simkiss was sin-binned. Confident of the victory Fylde searched for the bonus point and wrapped up the match with three tries from catch and drives.
