SANDAL RUFC first team are up to third in National 3 North after claiming their sixth successive league win at home to second-placed Harrogate on Saturday.

The top-of-the-table clash was always going to be a close-fought one and so it proved as Jim Kilfoyle’s men celebrated a 20-17 win.

Tries from James Ellar and Simon Frewin, both converted by skipper Greg Wood, kept Sandal in the hunt.

However, it was Wood’s continuing form with the boot that proved crucial and his penalty and decisive drop goal maintained Sandal’s 100 per-cent home record so far this season.
