Sale Sharks fly half Danny Cipriani joined his new club this week, and has been settling into the routines at Carrington. Here’s the picture the club’s supporters have been waiting to see: the Summer signing in the club’s Canterbury training kit.
It was also a case of “Welcome back” to Eifion Lewis Roberts after his successful year with the Sharks’ Heineken Cup opponents RC Toulon.
Other players reporting for pre-season duty in the second Carrington cohort were three players involved in the IRB Junior World Cup in South Africa: Will Addison & Ross Harrison (England) and Scotland’s Will Bordill. Senior Scots Richie Gray and Richie Vernon are due next week, having rested after Scotland’s highly successful Southern Hemisphere Tour.
To celebrate Sale Sharks’ partnership with Spinningfields, the squad will be training in Manchester City Centre at the Sharks in the City Summer BBQ on Friday 13th July.
You’re invited to join us on Hardman Square for Manchester’s Biggest Summer BBQ and watch the Sharks first team train, including Andy Powell and Mark Cueto. It’s also an opportunity to see recent signing Danny Cipriani and the returning Eifion Lewis Roberts.
Sale Sharks will also be launching their brand new Canterbury home shirt in style and there will be a pop-up Canterbury shop on site where you can be the first to buy the new kit.
Join the event on Facebook and look forward to a very special afternoon of rugby in the City Centre.
