The National 3 North title race will go down to the final game of the season on Saturday when league leaders Sandal travel to second-placed Sale in a winner-takes-all clash.

Sandal guaranteed a place in the top two and remain a point clear at the top following their 37-6 success at Burnage on Saturday.

Joe Allott led the try haul with two while Dave Martin, Rob Norbury, Sam Whittingham and Jamie Heron also crossed.

Mark Pease kicked two conversions and a penalty for Sandal, who lost at home to Sale on the first day of the season last September.

Sale also secured a top-two finish at the weekend thanks to a 44-25 victory over Wirral.
