Sharks launch podcast with Mark Chapman

Monthly Swimming with Sharks podcast will be hosted by BBC and Sky Sports presenter Mark Chapman

Episode one features Sharks Director of Rugby Alex Sanderson and Sale and England flanker Tom Curry

Episode two will be released to mark International Women’s Day

Sale Sharks is set to launch a new podcast, hosted by BBC and Sky Sports presenter Mark Chapman, and focused on celebrating the very best of northern sport.

The monthly ‘Swimming with Sharks’ podcast will feature guests from Sale Sharks and some of the region’s biggest sporting clubs, such as Manchester City, Everton in the Community and Manchester Storm.

Each episode will focus on a different topic ranging from leadership and building a winning culture, to how clubs use data and sport science, how clubs grow commercially, how to build the profile of women’s sport and much more.

The series kicks off with a look at leadership within Sale Sharks as Mark is joined by Director of Rugby Alex Sanderson and England and Sale flanker Tom Curry.

Tom, who has led Sale in the Premiership this season and captained England in last year’s Calcutta Cup clash with Scotland, explains how his approach to leadership at international differed from at club level.

And Alex takes Mark through his own thoughts on what makes a good leader, how his dad marked him out as a leader from an early age, and how he helps develop leadership skills within the Sharks dressing room.

Episode one will be available for download on Thursday, Feb 23rd, at 9am, from Apple Podcasts, Spotify and all other major podcast platforms.

Sharks Sales and Marketing Director Claire Butters said: “We want to take our supporters inside Carrington and show off the personalities that make up the fabric of the north and the culture and brand that we’ve been working so hard to build.

“But this podcast is so much more than that. Rugby, and Sale Sharks, needs to grow its audience and attract new fans and that’s what we want to do. We’re much more than just a rugby club.

“The North is home to so much sport, and some of the best, most innovative and successful sporting organisations in the country and this podcast is a chance to celebrate that and get an insight into what different organisations are doing and how they are doing it.”
