Rugby Union: Sandal tackle away test at Billingham

Following last weekend’s battling 36-24 win over Rossendale, Sandal travel to Billingham in a testing National 3 North fixture tomorrow, Saturday.

The Greenwood Road side like to play a fast open style of rugby and Sandal will have to be wary of their ability to rack up the points but coaches Worrall, Bedford and Sowerby will be looking to build up an early season winning sequence. Flanker James Briscoe is unavailable so Tom Cotterill switches to open side while prop Alex Edler returns to the match day squad after missing out through illness last week.

Sandal squad v Billingham (3pm): J Ellar, G Newman, J Allott, D Martin, M Pease, S Frewin, G Wood, J Bedford, L Norbury, A Norbury, J Heron, R Norbury, A Edler, J Stewart, T Proctor, S Maguire, T Cotterill, S Whittingham.

The team bus leaves at 11.45am with supporters welcome. Sandal Saracens are at home to Yarnbury 3rds in the Central Merit League with a 3pm kick-off.
