Sandal bossed their National 3 North clash at Percy Park throughout as they celebrated a 33-21 success.

Sandal skipper Max Whittingham got the ball rolling inside five minutes when he crossed for opening try and Ian Jackson was on target with a penalty soon after.

The hosts were reduced to 14 men and the visitors took control, centre Elliot Munnelly going over for a score improved by Jackson, who added another penalty to the tally to make it 18-0.

Joe Bedford went over, Jackson converting, before Park finally made an impression through Stuart Findlay’s try and Toby Davison’s extras.

Sandal built on their 25-7 half time lead when Jackson bagged another penalty but Park responded with Austin Phillips’ try and Davison’s goal.

Simon Frewin secured the try-scoring bonus point for Sandal before Park grabbed a late converted try as a consolation.
