After snow forced the abandonment of last week’s National 3 North game against Lymm, Sandal are due to visit Birkenhead Park on Saturday hoping to replicate the comfortable 66-14 home win over the Wirral side last October.
Given their perilous position near the bottom of the table, as well as a resolute pack, Birkenhead could prove to be determined outfit and a tough nut to crack for promotion hopefuls Sandal.
Winger Alex Orr and centre Mark Pease are unavailable but Joe Allott is back in the squad, as is Tom Proctor who returns to the squad in place of flanker James Briscoe, out with a hamstring injury.
Sandal squad: T Coad, J Ellar, J Allott, D Martin, D McCormack, S Frewin, G Wood, M Whittingham, J Purcell, L Norbury, J Heron, R Norbury, A Thompson, J Stewart, T Proctor, S Maguire, J Gatus, S Whittingham.
