A point in the bag at sunny Sale

Recent trips to Sale have seen us come away completely empty handed - apart from the ever present threat of developing webbed feet and a pneumonia from the dire conditions just outside of Manchester.

But things were different this year - we weren't playing after dark and it was sunny and dry - and that was just the start.

We'd watched the results come in - Tigers mauled by Bears on Friday night and Chiefs dismantling Saracens on Saturday - which quite bucked us up. Could we be the only away team to grab a W? The short answer is No - but the second half showed a  steely mindset and a far less porous defence. To come away with a losing bonus point and to restrict Sale to just three tries was a result that most of us would have settled for before kick off.

But there was a real feeling of frustration at the whistle, from the fans and the squad alike. This isn't a team that takes defeat lightly which is good to see. 

Pictures, as ever from head over to the website for more.....


Power and pace saw James Ramm hurtle over the line for Saints' second half points.


Prop on the move.......Elliot Millar Mills on the charge - the forwards fronted up to the physicality of Sale and even won some scrum penalties! Matt Ferguson's hard work beginning to pay off?
