Cleck RUFC struggle on visit to Sandal

CLECKHEATON RUFC lost 40-12 away at Sandal in National League Three North last weekend.

Sandal raced to 14-0 lead as Cleckheaton were slow to get out of the blocks, but the Moorenders did reply with an unconverted try from Richard Piper midway through the first half.

However any hope the Moorenders had of getting back into the game was short-lived as Sandal went over for a third converted try before the break.

Cameron Burnhill gave the hosts something to think about shortly before the interval, but in the end it proved little more than a consolation try. Ronan Evans added the conversion.

The second period went the way of the home side as they touched down three more tries to run out comfortable winners.

Cleckheaton have the weekend off before they play a crucial game against relegation rivals Doncaster Phoenix on Saturday February 11 (2.15pm).
