Remembrance Day Game

This weekend we take on Loughborough Students. With a tough month behind us, including the first loss in 18 months at the CorpAcq Stadium. We look to get back on track against the team who seemed to have turned their fortunes around, although rooted at the bottom of the table, they have two convincing wins over Birmingham Moseley and Darlington Mowden Park.

Ollie’s Back

This Saturday, Sale FC Rugby head down to Blackheath for an away match with a KO of 2pm. Blackheath are the oldest open Rugby Club in the world and as such were affectionately known as “Club” due to all other teams at the time being in Schools or closed organisations.

After rupturing his Achilles last season, Ollie Longmore is back in the side. There are three changes from last weeks loss against Birmingham Moseley. A Simon Griffiths injury opens the door for Ollie Longmore to come in and Dan Birchall is back in the match day after a week off last week.  read more here

Team Announcement (Parky’s Back)

After last weeks disappointment and with some players needing to cement their places, this weekends game is going to be a real test for Sale FC Rugby. The line up also demonstrates how Sale FC Rugby have gone from being “one-brick deep” in the last two seasons to having real strength in depth. We also have a number of firsts with Elliot Hodgson a summer signing from Huddersfield joining us for the first time in National One. He gets his start on the wing with the absence of Paolo Odogwu.

Match Report Saturday 20thOctober 2018

Sale FC 23 Rosslyn Park 31

With the weather set fair, and the sun shining on the CorpAcq Stadium since earlier in the morning, it was definitely the ideal setting for this National One League clash between two of the country’s oldest rivals in Sale FC and Rosslyn Park, who were 3rdand 9threspectively going in to match.

At the kick off, Sale wanted to take the game to their opponents this afternoon and got an early break thanks in part to the early pressure placed on Rosslyn Park’s Fly Half Greg Lound, who could only take his side up to just outside his own 22m zone, due to the pressure placed on him by the home side.

From the subsequent lineout, Sale seemed to lose the second of these early exchanges as they were adjudged to have infringed at the lineout, leading to a penalty for the visitors who were able to clear their lines, pushing Sale back towards their own half of the field. Read more here

Our team for Saturday

This Saturday at 3pm we renew our rivalry with Rosslyn Park. Matt Postlethwaite is back from a minor injury, Connor Doherty and Paolo Odogwu come back into the starting line up. This team features 15 of the 20 that won National 2 North last season. Last week we showed our determination and never give up attitude by picking up a huge five points away at Darlington Mowden Park despite trailing in the game until the last 6 minutes.  The coaching staff are hoping we don’t go through that experience again.
