Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’d know something big is happening at Heywood Road on Saturday. Sedgley Park Tigers make the short journey to Sale FC in our return fixture with the intention of upsetting our upsurge in form since the poor outing at theirs. The timetable for the day is packed, with the bar opening at 12:00pm and the festivities finishing at 11pm with live music in the Steve Smith Bar. Lunch is totally sold out in our new venue The Suite @Sale with a Q&A from Ollie Longmore and a speech from Steve Smith. We will also introduce our new signing at 2pm.
We have some big events even before the KO where we introduce our new signing. Sale FC Chairman describes this new signing as “pound for pound” the best signing we’ve ever made.
Neil Briggs is confident that he’s a definite game changer and he says the players in the pack have been working like hounds to retain their spots.
Director of Rugby Jonathan Keep is keen to let this player off the leash on Saturday and see if he can really perform on a big stage after 6 months away from all contact from rugby.
We’ve tried to get more information on the new signing from the Director of Rugby and his team, but they aren’t releasing anything until 2pm on Saturday.
The team sheet won’t be released as normal, but the rumour is that at least one player is making their debut tomorrow….
