Sandal remain top of National 3 North despite the postponement of their clash at Rossendale on Saturday.

The Milnthorpe Green men’s disappointment at missing out on the fixture was quickly dispelled by news that near neighbours Cleckheaton had defeated title rivals 20-17.

That result means that Sandal remain on top of the division, three points ahead of Sale and nine ahead of third-placed Firwood Waterloo who won 18-11 at Morley.

Sandal will resume their campaign with a home game against Billingham on Saturday (2.15pm).
