A losing weekend

Sale FC managed to butcher 3/4 tries on Saturday against a very tough outfit from Tynedale.  The boys from Northumberland put on a ferocious defensive display frustrating Sale throughout, when they had their chance they took it under the sticks. A final score of 7-5 is probably deserved.

A full match report and Video will be up this week, but editor is currently no tour in Holland!

In other news, the Second team were edged out by Sedgley Park at home 24-20.  It appears the seconds have turned a corner and put on a good show against a strong Sedgley Team.  There will be match interviews uploaded this week as well.

This Weekend

We have two big games on this weekend. The First XV head to Tynedale to take on the undefeated team from Northumberland.  We are currently in 3rd place in National 2 North with Tynedale in 2nd Place.  Even a big win won’t see us overtake Tynedale, but defeat will definitely make our lives more difficult.

At Heywood Road the 2nd XV are in cup action against Sedgley Park. 

KO will be 3pm and the clubhouse will be open with entry free for all.

Bring the kids down and watch the action.

Sale Come Away With Three Points

Playing South Leicester at their ground is never easy and we’ve never won a game there.  Saturday at half time we looked for all the world like we weren’t just going to win, but pick up five points too.  Something changed and we ended up with a 22-22 draw.  Sale did outscore South Leicester 4 tries to 1, but poor discipline, some unusual decisions by officials and players, and we somehow lost out on two points.  Let’s not be too downhearted however, South Leicester don’t give away much at home and are likely to beat most teams down at Welford Road.  Full match report will be out later today
