The sun shone of the AJ Bell Stadium this morning as Sale Sharks hosted their annual press day ahead of the new season. The media were out in big numbers including television, radio and the written media.
The players were photographed by BT for in-vision use during the season in both home & away kits in the fans bar and then the team photos and head and shoulders shots were taken on the pitch. The early morning rain stopped just in time for the pictures on the pitch carrying on a proud tradition for great weather when the Sharks hold their event.
John Marfleet of Creative Capture was present and took a lot of behind the scenes footage so watch out for the photos in the coming weeks.
BT were also at Carrington yesterday gathering footage to use on their weekly magazine programme and Sharks will feature on ITV on Thursday evening at 7-30pm on a programme called 'Super Food Fact or Fiction'. The programme will feature coconut oil which the Sharks use for cooking at Carrington.
