Everyone at Sale Sharks was deeply saddened yesterday to learn of the death of Her Majesty The Queen and the thoughts and prayers of everyone at the club remain with the Royal Family.

The club shares in the nation’s grief and would like to pay tribute to Queen Elizabeth II for a lifetime of selfless service to her country and almost 70 years of inspirational leadership and immeasurable service to public life, including sport.
