COACH Jim Kilfoyle takes his Sandal team to Billingham today, Saturday, aiming to replicate the National 3 North victory enjoyed at Waterloo last weekend.

Sandal returned from Blundellsands with a 25-20 win that elevated them to fourth in the table but a trip to Greenwood Road is always a tough one and wounded Billingham will be keen to get back to winning ways following a 20-8 loss at Percy Park last time out.

Kilfoyle will be without winger Simon Frewin and flanker James Briscoe who are both unavailable but Alex Orr and Jonny Gatus return from injury and second rower Rob Overton is also available for selection.

Sandal squad v Billingham (away, kick off 2.15pm): T Coad, A Orr, J Allott, J Atkinson, D Martin, J Ellar, G Wood, M Whittingham, J Purcell, J Heron, R Norbury, L Norbury, A Thompson, R Overton, J Stewart, S Maguire, J Gatus, S Whittingham.

Sandal Saracens host West Park Leeds today in Central/North District Division Two (2.15pm).
