Sale FC Rugby TV is on its way

Over the next few months we will be developing Sale FC Rugby TV to bring post game highlights for those of you who can’t get there or just want to watch again.  Sale TV Highlights will be found under Sale FC Rugby TV.  This week we bring you the game from Harrogate v Sale in Harrogate and next week we will have highlights of the Scunthorpe game.  We will also endeavour to have pre and post match interviews with players and coaches so you can get all the latest information and views as we go.

 

Sale V Harrogate Preview

This is another must win game for Sale. If we want to put the playoff spot out of the reach of Leicester Lions and Sedgley Park as well as pushing toward a home draw for the playoff, we need to get at least 4 points against a tricky 11th placed Harrogate team.  Four of Harrogate’s eight victories this season have arrived in 2017, so they are on a bit of a roll.

In late October we managed the full five points, with tries from Joe “Donut” Kelly, Tom Ailes, Jack Moorhouse and Scott Rawlings. The first session was an even affair with the teams coming in 13-13 at halftime.  The set piece struggled with Harrogate’s power at times, as well as the referee’s interpretations of the scrum, but eventually we pulled away in the final 20.  More of the same this weekend should see us with a clear pathway to the playoff, but, this league is a tough place and we can’t be complacent.

 

 

Sale FC V Leicester Lions Preview

We take on Leicester Lions this Saturday at home. Sale have only lost one game at home this season to league leaders Caldy and we’re not looking for that to change this weekend.  Leicester comprehensively beat Sale in the away fixture in a game that saw the 1st XV underperform with a disappointing display in the East Midlands.
