Looks like Sale will be heading down at the end of the season, This season has just been a shocker for us. We've had two decent games (the two matches against Quins in the HEC) but apart from that, pretty poor. And then with players off on international we've just been atrocious, against Gloucester the other day they put seven tries on us, with a lone penalty from Charlie Hodgson putting points on the board for us. We're four points from bottom, and having lost to Leeds at home the other week, we're not looking too good for the rest of the season. We've got quite a few guys out injured atm, but that's no excuse for a professional team. To get dicked over so badly by Gloucester and Bath so close together (not saying those two teams are bad at all, just saying such one sided games shouldn't happen ) is just poor effort Is it because we lost a few big names at the end of the last season or is Kingsley Jones not up for the job? Probably a mixture of the two. I wonder how many players have a clause in their contract releasing them if we get demoted?
