One of our many tries last month was nominated for the Samsung Try of the Month and posted on the England Rugby website. It was a classic team try and epitomises the style of rugby we play down at Heywood Road. This try was scored against Wharfedale.
Sale FC were away at the races in a massive first half on a glorious day in Caldy. With tries and penalties it looked like it might be a day for the men in blue and white. Unfortunately, three yellow cards and a massive fightback from the deserving league champions saw us fall tantalisingly short, or indeed just the width of an upright. The full match report is now out

This weekend we are away to Caldy for a top of the table clash. Caldy and Sale FC are both guaranteed at least a playoff place in May for promotion to National One. Caldy however are 10 points clear at the top in the driving seat for automatic promotion. The only real chance Sale FC have of catching them with the 15 points left available this season, is with a win on Saturday. This would be a tall order against a team who haven’t lost since the opening game this season. Last time out versus Caldy, Sale struggled with the pace of the visitors late in the second half and went down to a very quick experienced team and motivated team. Sale, however are on fine form and haven’t lost a game in 2017 and go to Caldy with a strong team. This is going to be a massive game.
