He’s Back!

Johnny Leota makes his return to Sale FC Rugby this weekend in the away visit to Bishop’s Stortford Rugby. We also have Mark Lawrence back from injury replacing Kieran Wilkinson who is away with the Sharks. The full team is here 

In our home game against Bishop\s Stortford we found ourselves 0-8 down after four minutes, but then dominated the rest of the game to run out 22-8 victors. Bishop’s Stortford come off the back of a losing streak stretching back to November. However, three of those losses were by 2 points or less. Sale FC have picked up two good wins, but again, neither of them have been run away victories so we expect this to be a tight game.

Team For Cinderford

This weekend we have our first ever visit from Cinderford, a club promoted last season like ourselves from Level 4 rugby. They’ve had a slightly better start to their term in National One where they sit just three points ahead of us in the table. Due to the competitiveness of National One, those three points also mean they sit in Eighth while we languish way down in twelfth! Our first meeting away at theirs was also a similar close but distant story. We managed to get a bonus point, scoring five tries and 30 points, but Cinderford scored six tries and due to our indiscipline kept us from a losing bonus point by scoring 41. It was also the end of a remarkable 24 games undefeated for the boys from the CorpAcq stadium.

Sale FC Get Festive!

Match Report

Sale FC Rugby completed the double over their North West rivals Caldy RUFC. Over the last four games against Caldy we have now lost two won two, fortunately for us, the two wins were this season and have helped stabilise our position going into the New Year.

The setting for the match at Caldy was cold, wet and breezy which is pretty much the climatethere almost every day as far as I can tell! It is however a huge contrast to the last time we played on the Wirral when it was glorious sunny day.  We arrived to a warm welcome from their supporters and executive who were in a very festive Christmas spirit and fortunately for us that continued into the game when Neil Briggs came off the back of a rolling maul from a line out and went in from read more here
