This weekend Sale continue their progress towards the playoff spot with our first ever away trip to Scunthorpe. Lying in 14th position in the table Scunthorpe are 6 points behind Luctonians and safety from relegation. Scunthorpe have only one win in 2017 and are struggling with a growing injury list. Like most clubs they’ve had a week off rugby which should help them closer to full strength. This league has so many shocks in it, with any team capable of beating any other team as Preston Grasshoppers demonstrated last week by beating Leicester Lions 12 positions above them so we need to go in and play to the best of our ability.
Director of Rugby Jonathan Keep will want some improvement from the display against Harrogate two weekends ago where Sale were 10 points down after only 20 minutes.
