Sale FC Rugby v Cambridge – Saturday 27th April (c) Sale FC Rugby

On Saturday 27th April, Sale FC Rugby play host to Cambridge Rugby in their season finale to their first campaign in National League One.

With the blue and whites future in National League One almost certainly secured for another season, the visitors Cambridge still have it all to play for as they sit perilously above the relegation zone going into the final round of the season.

After their first meeting on the opening day of the season, where both sides played out a 36-36 draw down at Cambridge, it is sure to go down to the wire this time around with Sale FC Rugby having home advantage over their Southern opponents.

With the season drawing to a close on Saturday afternoon at the CorpAcq Stadium, it will also see post match the End of Season Awards Dinner taking place at the club, where players will receive such accolades as Player of the Season and Player’s Player of the Season. Additionally, there will also be the first awards ceremony for the 1861 Womens team.

To join in these celebrations at the club on Saturday evening contact Functions Manager here for your tickets. Tickets for the event are priced at £10 per person.

Admission for the game on Saturday is as follows: Adults £10, Concessions £8 and Children U16 FREE.

For more information about the game this Saturday please keep an eye on the club website and social media for more details.

On Good Friday, England Students will be playing against their French University counterparts in the return leg of their double header in Bordeaux.

After last Sunday’s historic victory over the French Students at Chester Rugby Club, where the England Students beat their French opponents by 27 points to 17, in what was their first victory in 10 years, their attentions now turn to the return fixture in Bordeaux.

Head Coach Darren Fearn (also Head of Rugby at Northumbria University) has named the following players in his team for tomorrow’s game.

In the starting line up is Sale FC Rugby and Manchester Metropolitan’s Hooker Christian Taylor, who “performed brilliantly” said Fearn after speaking about the victory last Sunday.

England Students Team to face French Universities in Bordeaux.

The game will be played at the Stade Gilbert Santiago on Good Friday (7.30pm Kick Off – French Time) with it being covered on the @StudentsRFU Instagram, Twitter and Facebook like they did last Sunday from Chester Rugby.

The club would like to wish Christian and his England Students team mates well over in Bordeaux, and hope that they can do the double over their French opponents in what will surely be a hostile environment in the South West of France tomorrow evening.
