SANDAL RUFC first team boss Jim Kilfoyle is hoping that his side can take their excellent 2012 form into the new year, which kicks-off at home to Rossendale today, Saturday.

Sandal ended last year sitting third in National 3 North having lost only three games and boasting a run of six wins and a draw from their last seven fixtures.

Kilfoyle’s troops also have a 100 per-cent record at Milnthorpe Green but they face one of the few sides that have beaten them this season.

Sandal lost 18-13 at Rossendale last September and they will be hoping to avenge that result and cut the gap on the division’s top two, Chester and Harrogate.
