IN-FORM Sandal bring 2012 to an end today, Saturday, when they visit Penrith hoping to win their seventh successive game in National 3 North.

Jim Kilfoyle’s men demolished the Cumbrians 81-13 at Milnthorpe Green in September but only one team has come away from Winters Park with a victory so far this season.

Back-rowers Sean Maguire and Sam Whittingham are unavailable so James Stewart switches to number eight while James Riley makes a welcome return in the second row.

Young Tom Cotterill makes his first appearance in the match day squad after an impressive start to his opening season in senior rugby.

Sandal squad v Penrith (away, kick off 2pm): T Coad, A Orr, M Pease, D Martin, J Ellar, S Frewin, G Wood, M Whittingham, J Purcell, J Heron, R Norbury, L Norbury, A Thompson, J Riley, T Cotterill, J Briscoe, J Gatus, J Stewart.

The team bus leaves at 9.30am with supporters welcome. Sandal Cougars host Otley 2nds in the Yorkshire Premier League (2.15pm).
