On a cracking day for rugby, Sale took on Eccles at Carrington for two 20 minute games.
Sale started strong and following a brace of tries, from both Oscar R and Joe, were 4 tries to 3 up at halftime. Straight after the restart, Eccles hit back at Sale with 3 unanswered tries. However, Sale were soon back in the game with Hattie, Olivia, Joe and Oscar crossing the line. Final score “very close” (must remember to keep score!)
Eccles started the second match much stronger than the first and Sale had to play catch-up to fight their way back into the game. Sale showed great character and a resolute defence, particular mentions should go to Dannia, Callum, Ché and Oscar for some great tackling. The second match saw tries from Ché, Joe, Oscar and Olivia. Although Eccles won the second game Sale can be incredibly proud of their performance. There were great runs and handling from all of the team and both matches were a pleasure to watch.
