This weekend my beloved yet floundering Sale Sharks did the unt
hinkable.... left Kingsholm with 5 points and not allowing Gloucester a single one infront of a packed ground.
Great day, epic Gloucester Banter.. hospitable and full of jibes (except one fella behind me but the less said about him the better) as a whole it was a damn good day rugby aside.
A game with 6 tries and 2 yellow cards, spinkles of handbags and some good solid hard tackles (wonder how much abuse the man mountain Twelvetrees got in the changing room for being taken down by the tiny Faf De Klerk?)
Faf was spectacular (as always) Webber had another stand out performance and I think we saw the best yet of O'Connor in a Sale shirt. Sharples was very good, like Faf... as always but Gloucester at times looked uninspired. Missing Cipriani maybe?
This really was the unthinkable Sale did, that much so I made a bet that if we won I'd semi streak... obviously I bottled it....
But, sadly.. like any normal Sale Sharks massive performance it's clouded. We never get to revel in the victories and the good work our team do, the media and their anti Sale Sharks agenda makes sure this never happens.... yesterday was no different.
