Because commander-in-chief Steve Diamond has organised an SAS style outing to the wilds of Cumbria for his entire first-team squad.
The Sharks players will be truly going back to nature on the two-day team-bonding trek which sets off from Sale's Carrington training HQ on Wednesday and ends in Eden Valley.
And for the those players with a squeamish disposition it promises to be a short, sharp shock to the collective senses that they will never forget thanks to a series of fiendish forfeits organised by their director of rugby.
"I've decided to organise a mystery tour for the entire first-team squad around Cumbria," Diamond revealed.
"It's a bit like a treasure hunt really and hopefully will be a bit of a departure from the normal pre-season training.
"The crack is that the squad will be split into groups of four and they will set off from our Carrington training base at 9am on Wednesday morning in a car with a tent.
"They will then be given co-ordinates where they will find clues to pick up and then, though they don't know it, it will eventually end up at Will Addison's parents' farm in Eden Valley."
So far, so good.
However the rider is that for the players depending on fate they could find themselves facing a challenge that's more about as far removed from grappling for points on the field as is possible.
"In each car there will be four players and they will number themselves on Monday morning from one to four," Diamond added.
"Depending on how the numbers pan out, one will have to get his head shaved at a barbers in Ashton before they get the next clue.
"Number two will be forced to shear a sheep once we get up onto the farm.
"Number three will have to skin a rabbit while we're at camp up in Cumbria and number four will be expected to dig a latrine while we are staying there.
"So it should be a laugh depending on which way you look at it and, who knows, it could be Danny Cipriani who has to have his head shaved.
"The beauty of it all is that it's all the player's choice depending on how the numbers fall."
What Diamond is terming his very own magical mystery tour is merely the latest in a series of innovative left field ideas dreamed up by the legendary former Sale hooker since his return to the fold two and a half years ago.
And rather than more hours spent beasting the squad on the training paddock, the Sale boss believes the break from routine will bring his players even closer together.
"It's about trying to shake up the way we do things, and to help with team building and bonding," added the Sale director of rugby.
"Instead of getting the army on board or employing people to do all of this, I thought I would do it myself.
"Some of the clues will be based around the team calls we've established so I'm hoping they won't be too difficult for them!
"Once they get there, whatever the weather rain or shine, we will all camp over-night.
"And one thing I'm trying to do is hire a huge 10 seater mobile home for the coaching staff which will really rile up the lads!
"The players will have to provide their own tents, though you can probably pick one up for about twelve quid from Tesco.
"But it's not all bad. There will be clay pigeon shooting organised and we'll be taking some of our chefs up and we'll have a huge barbecue once they get to the farm.
"However, there's a huge hill nearby so on the Thursday morning all the players will be running up and down that."
