SANDAL will be aiming to get back on track when they entertain fourth-placed Birkenhead Park at Milnthorpe Green on Saturday with the new winter kick-off time of 2.15pm.

The Wirral-based side is renowned for its strong forward play and Sandal coach Jim Kilfoyle will have to craft a masterplan to snare any of the league points on offer.

Sandal welcome back skipper Greg Wood for his first league appearance of the season after injury, last season’s captain and centre Dan McCormack, and no8 Josh Ferguson, while flanker Sean Maguire makes his first home appearance of the season following a lengthy absence through injury.

Squad: T Coad, A Orr, M Pease, D McCormack, D Martin, T Hodson, G Wood, G Newman, A Norbury, J Heron, R Norbury, L Norbury, T Proctor, A Thompson, S Maguire, J Stewart, T Hirst, J Ferguson.
