Today, we are looking back at the month of November.
In November, the LV= Cup started, and everyone was encouraged to send in their "Rugby Family Selfies". Mark Cueto, Will Addison & David Seymour got in the spirit.
The first match in the cup was against Wasps at The AJ Bell Stadium. It was the Sharks who claimed the victory, winning 32-29. Josh Beaumont scored his first ever try for the club. The following week, the Sharks travelled to Welford Road to take on Leicester Tigers. Sale were leading 13-3 at half-time, however the Tigers fought back and secured a 29-13 win, much to the disappointment of the Sharks.
Sale returned to the Aviva Premiership, and secured a bonus point 36-8 win over London Irish. Although the Sharks won the game, the match will be better remembered for a huge Sammy T tackle! A landmark was broken in this match as centre Andy Forsyth scored the 100th Try at the AJ Bell Stadium since the club moved there in 2012.
The first team's next game was in front of BT Sport cameras at The Stoop as they took on Harlequins on a Friday night. Dan Braid scored a try and led his side to a famous 16-12 win. It was the side's first win on the road since Easter. Sammy T was getting himself into mischief again, as he was photo-bombing Braid in his post-match interview with BT Sport, which you can see below!
After the game, Steve Diamond wanted his side to push on to ensure his side finished as high as they could: "Coming away from home and winning like that at a tough place like Quins is a tipping point in the season for us. What we've said is that we want to have between 25 and 30 points by Christmas and that will give us a shot at the top six."
The side finished the month with a trip to Kingston Park to take on Newcastle Falcons. In a very tight game, it was a moment of magic from Danny Cipriani, which sealed the 18-13 win. His chip from inside his own 22, lead to Johnny Leota scoring under the posts in one of the tries of the season.
Off the field, Movember got underway and captain Jonathan Mills was leading the way and trying to encourage Sharks fans to join in with the cause! The team ended up raising £2,784.
