Sale FC Rugby Statement

At the recent Sale FC vs Sale Jets game on Friday evening it has been alleged that a male “supporter” verbally abused the family of Tom Brady who was playing for Sale Jets vs Sale FC Rugby.  The Sale FC Executive and the rugby club as a whole would like to state categorically that this type of behaviour is unacceptable in any way shape or form at our club and is unacceptable in general.

We take pride in welcoming all people to our club and this type of behaviour disgusts us. We are a family rugby club with a thriving minis and juniors section who are proud of the work we do in our community. We will be conducting a full investigation of this incident and those responsible will be sanctioned.  We would also like this opportunity as a club to apologise to Tom Brady but more importantly we apologise to his wife and mother who were those subject to the abuse.

This is not rugby, this is not gentlemanly and this is not Sale FC Rugby.

On Behalf of the Executive Committee

James Hourihan

Sale FC Rugby President
