Sandal look to improve for Rossendale clash

SANDAL RUFC first team will be hoping to put last week’s disappointing 17-10 defeat to Beverley behind them when they entertain Rossendale tomorrow, Saturday.

The Milnthorpe Green men will have to improve if they are to get anything out of their home game against Rossendale, who are fifth in National Division 3 North.

Fly-half Greg Wood is available but full-back Tom Hodson is absent due to illness so captain Dan McCormack continues in his place.

Flanker Sean Maguire is likely to miss the rest of the season through injury but Austen Thompson returns at number eight.

Ben Brindley and second row Tim Wilson are in the squad.

Sandal 1st XV squad v Rossendale (home, kick-off 2.15pm): D McCormack, A Orr, D Mitchell, A Hall, B Brindley, D Martin, G Wood, M Whittingham, J Purcell, J Heron, R Norbury, A Norbury, J Riley, R Overton, T Wilson, T Hirst, A Burgess, A Thompson.
