Sandbach 1st XV tame Lions
PETERBOROUGH LIONS 5
Though this was far from a vintage performance, Sandbach will always be happy with a win on the road and a try-scoring bonus point to boot (writes Paddy Davenport).
Having established a 29pt lead just before the break, the game rather degenerated after that, as the cold weather and heavy conditions took effect. The Lions scrambled over for what proved to be their only score as the half closed and in a scrappy second half, they dug in to restrict Sandbach to just a further penalty try.
The win moved Sandbach up to third in the table and left the Lions mired at the bottom.
