The lads have the upper hand on paper heading into this game, but considering the importance for points, Plymouth Albion will be looking to disrupt Sale FC’s momentum with a win at home this Saturday.

Fergus Mulchrone had an class game against Blackheath, picking up 2 tries and a Nat 1 ‘Player of the Week‘, well deserved praise 

Should be a cracking encounter with plenty on the line!

This weekend

This Saturday we take on Rosslyn Park at the CorpAcq stadium with a Kick off of 2pm. We’ve played Rosslyn Park twice in this league and both times lost out to a quick backline and some powerful forwards. Away last season we lost 31-26 with Paolo Odogwu earning two points for the team with a moment of brilliance picking up the 4th try for a try bonus point and a losing bonus point. The home game earlier in the 18-19 season was much more disappointing with no bonus points and the end to our 18 month home winning streak. Our ambition is to reverse these two results and demonstrate how far we’ve come in the last 12 months. Pre-match meals are available by contacting Brad McBride on functions@salefc.com
