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.
Speaking after Saturday afternoons win over London Welsh, Director of Rugby Steve Diamond said, " It wasn't a great performance by us overall and it was scrappy in some areas and they were dogged so we had to work hard for it,"
Sale Sharks will be looking to attract a capacity crowd to the AJ Bell Stadium when they entertain Munster in their opening group game in the European Champions Rugby Cup on Saturday 18th October, kick off 1pm.
