The annual M&J Festival at Manchester Rugby Club was a huge success with teams from all over the north west arriving at Grove Park for a day of rugby.
Sale Sharks players, James Gaskell, Nick MacLeod and Sam James were all there to watch the finals and hand out the medals and trophies. Pictured above are Manchester U8s with the players. Well done to all the teams that took part!
Sale Sharks will be at the Land Rover Cup Festival, at Manchester, on Sunday 13th October, with more players, posters, our shop and an opportunity to win a signed Sale Sharks home shirt! Watch out for the Community Staff if you're attending and register with them for your chance to win.
Sale Sharks are looking to take the next step and break into Aviva Premiership Rugby's top six but the club's head of community operations Jonny Acheson is adamant their grassroots work is already among the best in the country.
In the run up to the Aviva Premiership Fixture announcement on Friday, we thought we'd look back at the all the previous encounters of the sides in the Premiership since 2000! Do you remember any of these encounters? Let us know via Twitter or Facebook.
