On Sunday 20th October, Sandbach RUFC hosted the Lexus M&J Festival for U7s to U10s. Sale Sharks players Will Cliff and Mike Haley were in attendance, where there was some great rugby played by all age groups. Sharks players watched some of the games and were there to hand out the medals and trophies to the winners. Well done to all teams that took part in which was a well organised and a successful tournament.
The fixtures for the A league have been released and Sale Jets will once again play their games at Heywood Road. The exact dates and ties have yet to be finalised and we will advise you the supporters when we can confirm them.
Following his tour of New Zealand with England Danny Cipriani was interviewed my GiveMeSport and had lots to say about the tour and next season. Danny said, "I've just got back from my holiday, and it was good to get a break in the sun and spend some time abroad with my good mate James [Haskell]. He is a top lad."
The balmy summer weather and pre-match hype in the Manchester Evening News and on BBC Radio Manchester ensured a good crowd turned up to watch a classic football v rugby cross code challenge as the Sale Sharks Supporters Club and Sale Sharks Community Coaches took on an Altrincham FC Supporters and staff side at the neutral sport of T20 cricket; a match sponsored by Plas Coch to open the Ashley Beer and Food Festival.
A five star holiday home park situated on Anglesey in North Wales is preparing for a raft of sharks to arrive this week. Plas Coch Holiday Home Park is playing host to Sale Sharks RUFC as they moor their rafts at Plas Coch's private slipway and make their way to the park for a sumptuous barbecue.
