James Ellar’s brace inspired National 3 North title chasers Sandal to victory over Wirral at Milnthorpe Green.

In atrocious conditions, the hosts returned to winning ways with a 24-8 success in which Alex Orr also crossed the whitewash.

The result keeps Sandal four points behind table toppers Sale who won 42-5 in their home clash with Firwood Waterloo.
