Cheshire Plate Match
During mid-week training and before the match, the players were asked to improve on their performance from the prior week, and despite the scoreline all players improved their individual effort against a very strong Sandbach team.
Full credit to our hosts, who played irresistible rugby throughout and proved that good passing opens up defences more often, and more thoroughly than straight running.
The second half saw Sale rally, and some big hits from Ali Ashtar saw our confidence return, but despite coming close twice we were unable to cross the whitewash for that all important score.
The game was played in the right spirit throughout, and we wish Sandbach all the best in the latter stages of the competition.
