For the visit to Sandal on Saturday, Carlisle make one change to the team that was victorious over Pontefract last week.

Matt Shields, the young prop, is not available due to committments at Sedbergh School where is a pupil in the upper sixth form.  Martin McGimpsey gets his berth back after losing out to Sheilds a couple of weeks ago due to family illness.

Otherwise the pack is unchanged with Steve Stamper (captain) the other prop and Tom Graham at hooker.

Ben Blain remains at full back with Stephane Helies on the right wing.

Mark Allan and John Bowman are the forwards replacements with Dan Holmes covering the backs.


The city side will be going to Sandal to avenge a home defeat early in the season, and if the way they played against Pontefract is a pointer, then they must be hopeful of a result.
