He moved back to Rugby again with Huddersfield, but this time playing Union and was the winner of the Samsung Try of the Month which you can see here.  He has blistering pace and as you can see from the video great footwork.

David Seymour Signs For Sale FC Rugby

Sale FC Rugby make a huge statement by signing Sale Sharks and Saracens player David Seymour for the upcoming season.

 

 

 

Director of Rugby Jonathan Keep says

We are looking forward to welcoming Dave into the squad this summer as he transitions from professional to semi-professional rugby. It goes without saying that his experience and leadership qualities will be invaluable to us on and off the field and we are all looking forward to working with him.

It’s extremely important to us that anyone joining the squad understands the clubs values and fits in and Dave certainly fits the bill there.

 

\This transition worked well with Briggsy last season and I’m sure we can expect more of the same from Dave over the coming season. These are exciting times for the club as we step into the 3rd tier of English rugby and a signing like Dave will be a huge boost for the whole squad.

Match Report Sale vs Luctonians

23RD WIN IN A ROW…JUST

On Saturday, Sale made the long cross-country journey to Herefordshire to take on Luctonians in their final game of the season. The blue and whites had already confirmed promotion two weeks ago but, for Luctonians, their goal was clear – they needed a bonus point win to avoid relegation and in hopeful anticipation, Mortimer Park was packed to the rafters.

The match started with both teams using their kicking games to good effect but it was Sale who made the first breakthrough. Following a mazy run from Chris Owen, the ref awarded a penalty to the visitors and, from the resulting scrum, the forwards pushed powerfully towards the try line with Tom Ailes diving over.  Read More Here

 

 

Sale Squeak past Luctonians

In a game where Luctonians needed to get 5 points to stay in National North 2, they found themselves down 19-5 at half time against the League champions.  After a strong fightback they just fell short  22-21 benefiting Wharfedale who now stay in National 2 North.  This game demonstrates the depth in strength of National 2 North where the league champions could well have been stopped on the final game of the season.

A full match report and highlights video will be up midweek.
