National 3 North title chasers Sandal maintained their impressive run of results with a battling 34-25 home win over Firwood Waterloo.

The visitors to Milnthorpe Green staged a gutsy second-half fight-back but Sandal prevailed thanks to a brace a piece from Simon Frewin and Joe Bedford and touch-downs from James Ellar and Mark Pease, who also added two conversions.

Sandal remain second in the league, five points behind Sale but with two games in hand.
