AFTER a week off, Sandal RUFC first team return to National League 3 North action today, Saturday, with a trip to Waterloo (2.15pm kick-off).

The Blundellsands side currently lie in ninth place in the table, seven points behind Sandal, having won four of their 12 matches so far in this campaign.

Sandal coach Jim Kilfoyle still has injury concerns in the second row with James Duggan out for the season, Rob Overton and James Riley both a couple of weeks away from returning, and Austen Thompson unavailable owing to work commitments.

So, prop Luke Norbury drops back to take the number five shirt with brother Ash starting in the front row.

Centre Dan McCormack returns from injury for the unavailable Mark Pease, while young winger Jake Mulhern and ex-Wakefield number eight Mark Sowerby are also named in the matchday squad.

Sandal squad: T Hodson, A Orr, D McCormack, T Coad, D Martin, S Lig, J Mulhern, G Wood, G Newman, A Norbury, J Heron, R Norbury, T Proctor, L Norbury, S Maguire, J Stewart, J Ferguson, M Sowerby.
