With no more Heineken Cup games until December, the Sharks are fully focused on picking up the points and need your support! Cheer them on from the stands and terraces at Salford City Stadium at these games:
Sale Sharks v London Irish, Friday 2nd November (8pm) Aviva Premiership
The Irish have undergone big changes on and off the field during the Summer, with Brian Smith in charge at The Madejski again. After a poor start, the Irish added to their home win against Worcester Warriors by surprising everybody with a bonus point win against Northampton Saints.
England centre Jonathan Joseph was a constant threat against the Saints with his electric acceleration and changes of direction. Alongside his colleagues Topsy Ojo, Marlon Yarde and Sailosi Tagicakibau, the Irish raids came in from far and wide. The traditionally strong pack were well served by the back row of Garvey, Gibson and Treviranus.
The deadly kicking boots of Steven Shingler and Tom Homer are ready to penalise any misdemeanours. Watch out for an early firework display between two sides who need points at the lower end of the table.
Sale Sharks v Saracens, Friday, 16th November (8pm) LV= Cup
Sale Sharks are taking this competition very seriously - it's a six-game passport to the Heineken Cup if you win it. It looks as though Sharks will only lose their Scots to the Autumn international programme.
Sarries have a squad with great strength in depth. Will Charlie Hodgson and Richard Wigglesworth come back to haunt their old side again?
The Southerners won't be losing many of their pack to the Autumn international programme, and their famed rotation policy should make for an interesting evening. John Smit, George Kruis and Andy Saull made their first appearances against London Welsh earlier this month, and the superbly effective Steve Borthwick will ensure that the Sharks' lineout is fully tested.
Sale Sharks v Northampton Saints, Friday, 30th November (7.45pm) Aviva Premiership
Games between the Sharks and the Saints always carry a certain amount of spice. Expect former Sharks Christian Day and Luther Burrell to be among the visiting squad, with the Pisi brothers among the backs and Soane Tonga'huia in the visiting front row.
Saints hold aces in key points all over the park, even during an international window, and it will be fascinating to see if Vasily Artemyev can use the wide acres of the Sharks' new home to his benefit, or whether the home defensive strategy can hold the fort.
Please note that the kick off for this game has been brought forward by fifteen minutes.
