The Anglo Welsh Cup competition recently saw a dominant Sale Sharks side thump over an inexperienced Cardiff Blues team. Sale Sharks, with this victory, now sits atop of the Pool 2.
At the interval, Laurence Pearce opened the advantage with a score for the Sharks, and put through a second after the break.
James Flynn and Neil Briggs also went over for the Sharks and they were also awarded a penalty. Their victory means Cardiff goes home so far in this competition, with a third successive defeat.
Despite the Sharks going into the contest with a squad who were far more experience, the early exchanges were controlled by the opponents. Cardiff had the opportunity to take the lead through Evans. However, he missed the target narrowly, and they had to pay the price for that. (more…)
Sales Sharks’ pair, Tom and Ben Curry, made Aviv Premiership Rugby history last Sunday when they became the fourth pair of twins to play side by side up in the top flight.
The pair were in the Sharks game where they were defeated 34-24 by Wasps at the Ricoh Arena. Tom had come off the bench to join the game in the second half of the game.
Ben started the game, which was his first Aviva Premiership start, and went on to play all 80 minutes at the back row. Tom however joined him just before the hour mark at the park.
For Tom, his first debut for the Sharks, had come last month in the game against Bristol Rugby, where he went on to score a try at his first appearance. Ben, on the other hand, made his bow in the home clash with Saracens just last weekend. (more…)
The Sale Sharks Rugby team was able to beat the Harlequins team of 14 men with a 9 point advantage. This was achieved by Dan Mugford who has signed on with the team from Nottingham. This was the first win for the team in the Premiership League that has started off for the new season of 2016-17.
Mugford was asked to come on board as a fly half when AJ MacGinty came away with an injury in the hamstring. Mugford scored three penalties that gave the Sharks team a lead of 9-7 by half time. The Quins on the other hand were trying to stay on with Chris Robshaw trying his best for his team. David Seymour was able to score a victory. (more…)
The Sale Sharks have won their final warm up game against Edinburgh and looks ready for the forthcoming 2016/17 Aviva Premiership. They beat Edinburgh by completing five tries. The Sale Sharks coach, Pete Anglesea, is happy with the way the team has been performing, but feels that they have lots more to work out before competing against Newcastle Falcons in the season opener.
Anglesea said that the team has done very well against Edinburgh, one of the best performing teams at the Pro12. They were a tough opposition for the Sharks and everyone in the team got a run out. He felt that the rustiness that Sale showed against Fylde did not affect the outcome of the game and the team was able to win the game. This is very important and will bring a lot of positive feeling in the player’s mind before the Premiership. (more…)
Sale Sharks has been going great guns.
They are being taken over by a new management that will hopefully invest new funds and help the team to reach top position in rugby across the continent. Sale Sharks has some great players on the team. George Nott is one such player who played a key role in the Under 20 championship of the country. The launch of the championship tournament was in style thanks to players like George Nott of Sale Sharks.
If you have followed the match you would have witnessed how George, in the role of a flanker, helped to score in the opening try. The game had been held at the Manchester City Academy stadium. Here the hosts were successful in overpowering Italy at a score of 48-10. The campaign kick started in a great way as a result of the opening try.
