Surprised to see Barrington and Koch on the bench - shows how light we now are in the front row with Titi away with the USA.

Anyone know if this is televised anywhere?

Superman - I'd recommend the "rugby on TV" link in the header, newly installed by our glorious admins (all hail the admin)

Sadly I think this one is a blank for TV!

I guess they do have Bristols on TV but shame there is no way of seeing this game as who can get to Sale from down here on a Friday night!

Wuss beat Sale 35-3 last week which puts our result in perspective. They are away to Tigers tomorrow so we ideally need them to do us a favour and either win or stop Wuss getting a tbp to set up a winner takes all match at AzP. A draw away from home is always a reasonable result but I bet the boys are disappointed.

Wuss have picked their first team agin for their match at tigers, so clearly targeting this competition.

My thoughts (since I appreciate others' after A league/non televised games):

Another excellent game from Kpoku (even better than v Tigers), carried and tackled to great effect. Judge excellent for 30 minutes (then tired?), dominating his opponent (their first penalty a poor decision), Day stole a couple of lineouts and though slow on the turn worked tirelessly. Taylor's speed of passing excellent, kicking so-so, sniping nearly came off. Our lineout was outstanding for 30 minutes then fell apart - throws too long (3?) one too low, one stolen. Bosch looking to offload but no runners on his shoulder (went off for 8 min with a bloody nose, came back to organise the youngsters). Morris made a couple of good breaks and generally good with ball in hand, not so good in defence. Scrum was generally dominant but a little inconsistent. Crossdale chased well but looks frail! Lewington rather too anonymous for me. Gallagher mixed - early kick half charged down, a couple of theirs knocked on, but reads game well/positioning good. Back row made 3 or 4 Jackals, tackled well but too little with ball in hand.

But Malins, oh dear! Sliced kick straight out, restart straight out, another didn't travel 5 yards, easy early penalty missed. Much worse than v Tigers.

Our kick chase was excellent, we should have won at a canter (Sale fans near me after 30 min "It's going to be a long day") but we started gifting possession/penalties and they looked increasingly dangerous as they bludgeoned then threw wide - Wilkinson played very deep helping them to outflank us. They finished as the more dangerous team. Think I saw our new prop, Kpoku2 (and Adams-Hale) warming up amongst the reserves.

Our second try was a fantastic team effort, Sale's first pretty good too. Clark targeted a little again, didn't over-react nor back down! Very clear in the warm-up that the organisation is (understandably) a rung or two down on the First team, and it showed in the backs where the second line of receivers was rarely used to any effect; a couple of openings blown, another nearly gifting an interception try.

My thanks to the great Sale fans surrounding me - generous with half time cakes/biscuits and good company, though forcing me to join the eating of Jelly Babies every time they scored was uncalled for!

It won’t be a winner takes all next week as we have the farce of the fourth game next year when there is a local derby with a team not in our pool. You knew it was too easy otherwise

I would imagine we will put out the team (no starters from the team that beat Bristol in the league) that beat Stade in the challenge cup as the big boys will have had two run outs

Wuss beat Tigers 12-31 today with another TBP. Short of a huge turnaround now they look set to top the pool. Playing near enough their first team helps of course.

Good play by Dom Morris in the build up to each of the two tries.
