A massive game down at Hinckley this weekend saw Sale pick up 4 points to move us clear of the opposition. This was a no holds barred game with a level of commitment from both sides that hasn’t really been matched this season. Sale have a superb defensive record but it was tested throughout this game. With three yellow cards, at one point Sale were down to 13 men in the final 20, but managed to control the game superbly. The biggest difference between these two teams on Saturday was the game management from 1 to 20. We took our chances, Chris Johnson kicked flawlessly, the front row were resolute and they didn’t let the “enthusiastic” crowd get to them.
