How many of these games do you remember?
Sale V Gloucester- Parker Pen Shield semi final
After scraping past Bristol 25-20 in the quarter finals, Sharks had an even tougher game at Franklin's Gardens against Gloucester for a place in the final.
Sale's eventual glory could have been ripped away from them, as Gloucester kicker Ludovic Mercier lined up an easy kick which would have put Sharks out of the competition. He missed, and Sale marched on to Oxford.
Tries by Mark Cueto, Steve Hanley, Charl Marais and Dan Harris, as well as eight points from the boot of Charlie Hodgson, were enough for Sale to edge through a hard fought encounter.
The win secured a showdown with Pontypridd at Oxford.
Sale v Pontypridd- Parker Pen Shield final
Sale took on a star studded Pontypridd side in Oxford. The Welsh team included Sonny Parker, Ceri Sweeney, Gethin Jenkins,Brent Cockbain, Robert Sidoli and Michael Owen, who were all playing for Wales at the time.
15-3 down at the break due to four penalties and a Sweeney drop goal, Jim Mallinder's men had their work cut out if they were to lift their first European silverware. A Martin Shaw try gave hope to Sharks, with Steve Hanley crossing minutes later to put Sale in command.
Pontypridd were not done, though, and after setting up a rolling maul off a penalty, hooker Mefin Davies bundled over for the try on 67 minutes. Brett Davey converted for a 22-18 lead, after which Sale responded by sending on replacement inside centre Dan Harris for Mel Deane. It proved an inspired substitution that was to pay dividends late in the game.
It was Harris who scored a crucial try with six minutes left which gave Sale the silverware, and sent out a serious message to opponents that they meant business.
Sale v Wasps- last game at Heywood Road
Sharks were unable to secure a win in their last game at Heywood Road, going down 9-16 to a hard working Wasps side.
A place in the semi final could have been secured with a win, but Sale were unable to find the crucial win against a Wasps side which lied in second place. Rob Howley scored the game's only try after 19 minutes, with Jos Baxendell the only Sharks scorer with three penalties.
The game signalled an end of an era for Sale, who had been playing at Heywood since 1905. Heineken Cup rugby was secured though, as Sharks continued to progress and grow as a club.
Sale v Northampton- first game at Edgeley Park
Fans witnessed a thriller in the first game at Edgeley Park, as Sale missed out on a win in a pulsating 37-37 draw against Northampton Saints.
Steven Hanley, Andrew Sheridan, Matthew Cairns and Stuart Turner all crossed, as Sale scored 5 tries to the Saints four. Shane Drahm was in inspired form for the visitors, scoring 22 points.
The game was the start of what would be a disappointing season, in comparison to previous campaigns, as Sharks finished in 7th place.
Moving to a new stadium and performing immediately was a big ask for Sale, who had to wait until November for their first win against Leeds Tykes.
Sale v Leinster- Sharks win in Dublin
A late Charlie Hodgson drop goal gave Sharks a dramatic win over Leinster in Dublin. The Irish outfit had never been beaten in a Heineken Cup game at home, with Sale creating history in a terrific game.
Leinster put out a star studded side, including Brian O'Driscoll and Shane Horgan, but were unable to find a win against the stubborn Sharks
Going behind to a Reggie Corrigan try early on, Sale responded in style with Jason White and Chris Jones going over keep the visitors well in the game.
After both sides traded penalties in the second half, Leinster held a two point lead with just a minute to go. Cue Hodgson to land a three pointer and give Sale a moral boosting win. Despite exiting at the pool stage, this was a historic win for Sharks.
Sale v Pau- Sale win European Challenge Cup
Sale romped home to another European Challenge Cup win at the expense of French outfit Pau. Four tries, including two from Charlie Hodgson, were more than enough at the Kassam stadium as Sharks lifted yet more silverware.
Bryan Redpath took to the field for the last time in Sharks colours, and was instrumental in an impressive win. Sale went in at half time 17-3 up thanks to a try, two conversions and a penalty by Hodgson as well as a score from Andy Titterell.
Pau failed to find a spark after half time as Sale ran in another two tries, one from the man of the match Hodgson, and one from Mark Cueto.
Victory in the final topped off an excellent season, in which Sale also made the Premiership semi final, only to be beaten by Wasps.
Sale v Munster- Sale win in Heineken Cup pool game
Sale recorded an impressive win against giants Munster. Sililio Martens and Jason Robinson scored tries in a 27-13 win, against the side that went on to win the competition.
Edgeley Park was at full capacity, and the crowd were on the edge of their seats as Sharks went in 10-9 down with the game very much still in the balance.
Martens' try just before the hour mark put Sale narrowly ahead, and it was only a late Jason Robinson try that put players and fans alike at ease.
This was the first pool game for both sides and Sharks gave themselves a great springboard for success. Sale eventually were knocked out at the quarter final stage.
Sale v Wasps- Sale advance to Premiership final
Sale ended Wasps' three-year grip on the Premiership title as they outfought the champions to secure their place at Twickenham.
Despite taking a big hit from Simon Shaw, Charlie Hodgson soldiered on to score 17 points, scoring every kick he took.
Jason Robinson's dazzling try put Sale in a commanding lead.
Wasps failed to break the Sharks defensive line for the whole game, with Mark Van Gisbergen their only scorer with four successful penalties.
The Champions were just seven points behind with 15 minutes to go, but Hodgson kicked yet another penalty to finally kill off the visitors in the 77th minute.
Wasps had several England stars to call on, including Josh Lewsey and Joe Worsley, but ultimately Sale were not to be undone as they marched onto HQ to the delight of the home crowd.
Sale v Leicester- Sale lift Premiership title
Sharks became the first club in the four-year history of the play-offs to win the title after topping the table.
Sale scored through Mark Cueto, Magnus Lund and Oriol Ripol against Lewis Moody's try to lead 23-10 at half-time.
Charlie Hodgson nudged the score along with 23 points and Chris Mayor added a fourth try for Sale's first title.
Leicester were hampered by a series of errors and despite a brief renaissance late in the second half, culminating in James Hamilton's pushover score, they were unable to cope with the power, verve and control of Sale.
Sale captain Jason Robinson, the former England full-back, became the first player to win a Grand Final in both codes of rugby.
Sale v Bath- dream ending for Robinson
Jason Robinson had a heroic end to his Sale career by running in a try with seconds left at Edgeley Park.
The Sharks legend used his legendary pace to outstrip a tiring Bath to secure a narrow win, when earlier it had looked as though Bath might be able to grab the points.
Nick Walshe and David Barnes tries added to an impressive kicking performance from England international Olly Barkley, as Sale struggled to cope in a late season game.
The visitors led 23-13 on the hour mark, but a try from the late Selorm Kuadey cut the gap as Sale could see victory was a real possibility.
With time almost up, Robinson took on three Bath players to charge over and send The Sharks faithful into ecstasy.
Robinson even attempted to convert his last try in a Sale shirt, but his effort bounced back off the post. It mattered little as he had the fairytale ending that he and the Sharks fans would have wanted.
Sale v Northampton- Saint Andre's last game
Sale's farewell party for their director of rugby, Philippe Saint-André, and several of the players who shared his 2006 Premiership triumph was a winning one, but was not enough to secure an outside chance of making the play offs.
A bonus point win was the only chance Sharks had to make the top four, but results elsewhere meant that a semi final berth was tantalisingly out of reach.
Juan Martin Fernández Lobbe, Eifion Roberts, Dean Schofield and Mathew Tait were all try scorers as Sale missed out on the semis by just four points.
Saint-Andre will go down as the most successful coach in the clubs history, after guiding Sale to their first Premiership win and a European Challenge Cup victory.
Sale v Wasps- game rained off
Wasps refused to play the game which was scheduled to be played in November because they were unhappy with the state of the pitch at Edgeley Park. Despite referee David Rose saying that he was happy with the state of the pitch, the visitors refused to take to the field, and had even ordered pizza's to their team bus before the game was even called off.
When the game was eventually played in March, Sale were never likely to lose considering their anger at the game being called off previously. Richard Wigglesworth and Charlie Hodgson secured the 19-8 win, with Wigglesworth scoring the only Sharks try.
Sale v Newcastle- Diamond returns
Steve Diamond watched over a hard fought draw on his return to the club, as Tim Swinson's late try meant the points were shared.
Charlie Hodgson and Jimmy Gopperth traded kicks in the first half, as both hit 9 points each going into the break.
Sisa Koyamaibole crossed to give Sale hope of a big win in a very tough away game, as Sale led by seven points going into the final five minutes. Sharks failed to hold on though as Swinson crashed over to level the tie.
This point proved to be important as Sale finished third bottom ahead of Newcastle and relegated Leeds Carnegie.
Sale v Harlequins- last game at Edgeley Park
Sale were defeated in their last game at Edgeley Park against a strong and organised Harlequins side.
Danny Care dived over a pile of bodies to give Quins the lead, Nick Evans converted and then swapped penalties with Sale youngster Tommy Bell.
Mike Brown weaved through Sale's defence for Quins' second try and Evans added the extras before the break.
Evans added another three penalties but Sharks fought back with a fine solo try by Will Addison.
Harlequins, who went on to win the Premiership after finishing top, could not spoil the last game at Edgeley Park for the fans, as 10,000 came to watch.
Sale v Saracens- defeat in first game at SCS
Sale Sharks started life at Salford City Stadium with a bonus point defeat against a formidable Saracens outfit, but gave the visitors a scare.
With twenty minutes left, the home side had grasped the lead but quickly fell to a try from England winger Chris Ashton. Despite sterling efforts, they couldn't repeat their earlier revival.
The scoring in a tense first half was entirely penalties - three to Cipriani, four from one of his predecessors, Charlie Hodgson.
Will Addison broke away in the second half to run nearly the whole pitch and score under the posts. Ashton crossed on the hour mark though, as Saracens took a lead that they would not relinquish. Will's try put him into the record books as having scored our last try at Edgeley Park and our first at the the Salford City Stadium.
Despite their best efforts, Sale had to settle for a bonus point on an encouraging first game at Salford City Stadium.
Sale v Cardiff- Cips to the rescue
In a classic game of two halves, Sale Sharks gained their first victory of the season by the odd point in 67. When Danny Cipriani came onto the field off the bench with 49 minutes played, his side were 27-12 down. Prompted by his astute kicking and visionary passing, the Sharks took the lead with six minutes to go, and managed to hold on by the narrowest of margins.
Cipriani added to Sale tries from Tony Buckley and Mark Jennings. Rob Miller's late kick sealed the win despite late Cardiff pressure. A hat trick of tries from Wales international Alex Cuthbert had put the blues 12 points ahead at half time, but Sale fought back in heroic style to claim their first win of the season
