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 Sale forward pack were left disappointed after two pick and go tries from Newcastle meant that the Sharks would drop points at home for the first time this season. Hooker Tommy Taylor has said that the way in which the two tries were conceded was frustrating.
