Blues 44-22 Fylde

Macclesfield ran in five tries as they swept Fylde aside. The bonus point victory was the Blues’ first of the season as they look to establish themselves as a National League One side. Fylde initially took the lead through a Scott Rawlings penalty, however the Blues hit back in the fifth minute after a driving maul saw skipper Ryan Parkinson cross for the Blues. The score was then made 14-3 to the Blues after sustained pressure saw Ollie Parkinson score for the Blues, Matt Bradley added the extras. The one-way traffic kept coming as Josh Redfern exploited a gap to score his maiden try for Macc on the 12th minute, taking the score to 21-3. However, the visitors soon hit back with a try of their own, Scott Armstrong the scorer, Rawlings added the conversion on the 18th minute. Bradley added two penalties for the hosts making the score 27-10 at half time.

Macc continued to build after the break, and Matt King secured the bonus point for the Blues after a slick backs move, put him in under the posts. Bradley added another penalty, which also saw Fairbrother sent into the sin bin for the away team. The Blues took full advantage of the extra man, as Ryan Parkinson bulldozed over from the back of a scrum for his second try of the afternoon. Macclesfield then started to fade as Fylde ran in two tries, the first came from Dorrington and the second was added by Bingham, making the final score 44-22. Next up for Macclesfield is an away trip to Coventry whilst Fylde host Blackheath.
