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…)
