Pathetic a bit strong Border, at least we outscored them 3 tries to 1.We're all sick to death of losing, thats now 3 from 3.

Should Newcastle have been able to come back in the second half ? Good question !

For a team hoping for a HC place no is the answer.

Try not to be so hard in future, its a MASSIVE improvement on the last three years.

My initial question was who was going to get the blame this week. Which you failed miserably to answer.

Unless you think Sale have improved on losing to Exeter ( going for top four place ) or Saracens ( going for top two ) or losing to Newcastle ( likelty to be relegated ) ?

Same questions need answering over Sale defence, IMHO.

Woodley. There was absolutely nothing wrong with the defence against Falcons, it was excellent. The problem stemmed from too many pens and not a lot ball. The way we defended was a vast improvement on Sarries. I saw a stat last night that Newcastle haven't lost in there last 5 at home and I think we've only won once there. The fact they're fighting for the lives makes them even harder to beat there. I left the ground not too disappointed in the performance I saw. A 7 point swing isn't exactly a capitulation, it's one score. A game which is balanced by this margin can always go either way. If we had blown a 15 point lead I could understand calling it pathetic but you are wildly exaggerating the situation Border. If we had a kicking game which enabled us to play a bit of field position and keep the ball away from our try line we would have won last night. Or perhaps more importantly if we were a bit more disciplined we would have certainly won. We are not as bad as Border suggests certainly

Just to correct dh651, we gave away a ten point lead (sale were 19-9 up at one point just before the half)
Whatever way you look at it, Sale only have themselves to blame.
Giving away 5 kickable penalties is in no way acceptable, we negated our 3 tries. The ill discipline has simply shifted from defence to giving away penalties.
