SALE SELL THEMSELVES SHORT
To be honest, this was a game that Sale hoped to win, targeted, could and should have won. They didn’t, and more of that later.

Back To The Nitty Gritty
The jury is still out on the new Premiership Cup but there's no doubt that most of us are pleased to see the league back in action with Tigers arriving at Kingsholm for a floodlit Friday .
Only the Lonely
One of the major problems of being in the lower leagues, for this website, is that fewer people attend games. This means there are fewer people who could write us a match report. For a trip away this is amplified, for an away trip in a cup-competition that no-one really cares about? One man and his dog. Fortunately, for The Craic, that man (or his dog, we're not judging) posts here and, in the absence of anything else, that will have to stand for out match report. Many thanks to Ecksile for the comments, it's good to know someone was watching.
Ospreys Supporters Club presentation
The European Challenge Cup game against the Ospreys was an opportunity for both sets of supporters to get together and enjoy some banter and beer in the Inn At The Side.
SALING TO THE RESCUE
So after 3 weeks of the Premiership Cup, proper rugby returns to Allianz Park on Saturday when we welcome Sale Sharks. Of course the 2 teams met a couple of weeks ago up north in the other competition, battling out a 15-15 draw.
England 15 v 16 New Zealand November 2018
England took on New Zealand 'All Blacks' the best in the world, in their second Quilter Autumn International and in the first half made them look ordinary!
Pivotal Point: Bath v Worcester
Bath face a pivotal point in their season against Worcester Warriors at the Rec on Saturday. Pivotal may seem a strange term only a third way through the season. Bath though lie 8th in the Premiership, are winless in in 7 games and in dire need of a win. The next three Premiership fixtures would normally be thought winnable. With 11 on the injured list and another 6 probably on international duty, will Bath have the resources to triumph and start to turn their season around?
