Club Announcement: New Men’s Adult Rugby Team – Sale FC Vikings
The RFU has recently announced that the lower XV teams of clubs (i.e., non 1st teams) will be allowed to enter them into the RFU league structure at level 10 as of the 2022-23 season. This will see lower XV teams, being allowed to play in the RFU league structure and gain promotion up to level 7 maximum.
In preparation of entering such a team into the league structure for the start of the 2022-23 season, Sale FC Rugby will be creating a new adult men’s XV team, which will look to play friendly games during the 2021-22 season.
Historically, we had such teams namely ‘Sale FC Vikings’ and we are looking to possibly revive this name. We see the creation of this team as being an important pathway to adult rugby for our Colts to transition into within the Club, as well as an opportunity to attract more local based adult rugby players to the club.
We will be looking to make further announcements regarding pre-season, training etc in due course.
