View from the south stand: Sale 57 Gloucester 10
There is a wide range of emotions with which a sports fan can leave at the end of a match, all the way from abject despair through relief to utter joy. Occasionally, though, we manage a rarity that is best described as “what on Earth did I just watch?”
View from the south stand: Sale 36 Irish 7
Spoiler alert: we won and won impressively. Irish had already beaten Quins this season, so this result was not a foregone conclusion, especially after last week’s debacle. Not only were Sale much improved, so was RefLink…
View from the south stand: Sale 12 Newcastle 13
So here we are for the first home game of the new season; several exciting new signings and a promise of kicking on from the improvements of last season. Disappointing to ship 7 tries at Wasps, but scoring 5 was a plus, so how would the team fare against Newcastle?
Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more...
Here we go again and my first full season as a moderator. The season has started with a try fest and the highlights on Channel 5 made for good viewing. But what about Sale? After a very quiet summer on the forum, an excellent travelogue by Gym Haka from the Lions tour and the thrill of seeing Sale players wearing the Red Rose what does the new season hold in store .

On Tour with the Lions - Part seven
So…it’s the end of the road…Gym takes us through the last few days of following the Lions…so close but so far….but would he do it again? Were the fush and chups worth the money? Was it worth all the hassle with the travelling and hotels? Would Gym do it again? For the last time its on tour with the Lions…and then home to cut the grass…with a combine harvester…
On Tour with the Lions - Part six
Well its another epic....and a win against the mighty All Blacks. Poynton Shark gives his verdict on the second test...who cares I hear you shout, we won! Gym Haka tells of the last mid week game and his encounter with a plague ridden Quins supporter, a mancunian in a flat cap and his former secretary. Its another epic but well worth the read. Enjoy!
On Tour with the Lions - Part five
We we have a treat for you this time...no expense spared! We have two for the price of one. gym Haka continues his tour of new Zealand the highlight this week...his own washing machine...and fish and chips. Poynton Shark watches from an armchair in Australia and gives his view of the first test...and he is not despondent...yet. So sit back and enjoy...this is an epic.

Well the lions have started to show thier teeth. And Gym is enjoying the cultural side of New Zealand including endless coach journeys, rain, Indian pizza,the stench of sulpur, a giant Haka, beer and why you shouldn't visit Hamilton ....oh and pondering the possibilities of the Sharkettes in grass skirts accompanied by a brass band.
