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.
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.
