After last weeks disappointment and with some players needing to cement their places, this weekends game is going to be a real test for Sale FC Rugby. The line up also demonstrates how Sale FC Rugby have gone from being “one-brick deep” in the last two seasons to having real strength in depth. We also have a number of firsts with Elliot Hodgson a summer signing from Huddersfield joining us for the first time in National One. He gets his start on the wing with the absence of Paolo Odogwu.

This Saturday at 3pm we renew our rivalry with Rosslyn Park. Matt Postlethwaite is back from a minor injury, Connor Doherty and Paolo Odogwu come back into the starting line up. This team features 15 of the 20 that won National 2 North last season. Last week we showed our determination and never give up attitude by picking up a huge five points away at Darlington Mowden Park despite trailing in the game until the last 6 minutes. The coaching staff are hoping we don’t go through that experience again. Team Sheet is Here
Today is a momentous day in the history of Sale FC Rugby. We welcome back Old Elthamians to the scene of what could be described as their greatest victory in the playoff against Sale FC. On that day, they ran out worthy victors in a clinical display in front of a large crowd. Today we also welcome all the hospitality guests to our Ladies Day upstairs in the Suite @Sale celebrating the launch of our Sale FC Rugby Calendar 2019. If that wasn’t enough, after more than two decades we welcome a Women’s team to play at the famous stadium.
Today Sale 1861 Women’s team will run out against the Police with a KO of 5:45pm.
Get down to the club and support both teams as they aim to both make and reverse history. #onesalefc
This is our second ever game against Old Elthamians. OE’s defeated us in the playoff in their one and only visit to Heywood Road back in 2017. A Try scorer on that day Paolo Odogwu makes his second appearance at the CorpAcq stadium this season.
There’s been quite a few changes since then. The facilities have much improved, we’ve been promoted but some things remain the same. Seven of our team that day are in the match day squad Saturday. read more here
The Women’s team Sale 1861 are also playing on Saturday with a KO of 5:45 pm. This is a unique double header along with Ladies day it should be an absolutely fantastic day.
