After a 'peaceful' night in a nearby hotel, the group then descended on Carrington, for a tour of the facilities and a session with Fraser McKenzie in the gym. Fraser was able to show the lads the sort of training the Sale Sharks players do in the gym, giving a demonstration of how to use the equipment and what each exercise is used for and then had some of the Sandbach players and coaches have a go.
The tour finished off with a photo under the posts at Carrington, with the lads all dressed up in their shirts and ties.
The team then set off to North Ribbleside, where they produced some great rugby - hopefully inspired by the previous night and morning and ran out winners 41-12.
The following morning the team travelled up to Kirkby Lonsdale RUFC for their last match on tour and could see Andy Powell and Cillian Willis up there, chatting to the minis and juniors.
