Centre Sam James is looking forward to his first taste of Singha Premiership 7's action, when he and the Sharks take the field tomorrow afternoon.
Sale Sharks will be taking on Newcastle Falcons, Worcester Warriors and Leicester Tigers at Kingston Park, and James has been named in Pete Anglesea's side.
He revealed he's excited to play in the competition: "This will be the first time I've played in the Premiership 7's. I've played in another tournament last year, when I was coming back from injury but I've yet to feature in this competition.
"I'm looking forward to getting out there and getting a taste of what the 7's competition is like at Kingston Park."
The side will be captained by James Mitchell, and Sam admits he is excited about the potential of the squad: "We have a really good looking squad who will be going out there, and we are hoping to do well in it and get to the Finals Day.
"There is a lot of talent on show, and a lot of young boys looking to prove themselves and push for a place in the first team so it's exciting."
Looking at the fifteen-a-side game, James made three appearances for the Sharks in the LV= Cup last season and he's looking to continue his progression into the first team this season: "My pre-season is going well and I'm feeling fit, and the rest of the lads are looking good, so hopefully I will get a few games this season."
