    Sale have rung the changes for their trip to Toulouse with Kingsley Jones making 8 changes to the starting lineup which lost narrowly to London Irish last Friday. It's understandable really considering there's only a 5 day turnaround until their game against the Blues, not sure why that match couldn't have been scheduled for the Sunday though.

    Toulouse: TBC

    Sale: Marika Vakacegu; Ben Cohen, Johnny Kennedy, Andy Tuilagi, Oriol Ripol; Nick MacLeod, Dwayne Peel ©; Gavin Kerr, Mahonri Schwalger, Jack Forster, Rob O'Donnell, Sean Cox, James Gaskell, David Seymour, Carl Fearns.

    Replacements: Ben Roberts, Lee Imiolek, Martin Halsall, David Tait, Neil Briggs, Will Cliff, Richard Wigglesworth, Chris Bell.

    unfortunately for the neutral this has been the mismatch that was expected once the sides were announced. Toulouse cutting through Sale at will, 3 tries to nil at the break.

    Toulouse 24-3 Sale HT.

    I was expecting this to happen, still disappointing to see though :(

    This game was a disaster waiting to happen.

    29 - 3 currently. Toulouse close to the Sale line again though.

    Donguy certainly did his best to try and screw up that scoring chance but to no avail :lol:

    try sale sharks 36-10 to toulouse
     
  10. What a load of rubbish. Who wants to watch an academy team get annihilated by one of the best in Europe. Would much rather see Wasps vs. Racing Metro than this tosh

    why the f*** would Sale rest players for the world's top club competition? The Heineken Cup is so much more important than the GP.

    yeah but tv companies back in August/September weren't to know that Sale were going to pick a weakened side.

    Could be under pressure from England to rest their internationals
    Also, with their current form they probably knew they weren't going to win away at toulouse, so are saving alot of players for the home game against Cardiff next week

    Another try from sale in the dying seconds, by Cohen


    FT:

    36 - 17

    I think if the Cardiff game wasn't only 5 days away we may have seen a few extra 1st teamers playing but in all honestly would it have made much difference today? No issue with resting the players for this one at all.

    The thing is Sale have gifted an easy bonus point to Toulouse which is really damaging Harlequins and Cardiff's chances of maybe pipping Toulouse for the top spot. Its frustrating and I hope when Sale have their full team out Cardiff beat them to pretty much knock them out.

    I agree completely, we weren't going to win away at Toulouse either way, so giving ourselves a better chance playing Blues seems a smarter thing to do

    I think this is more down to the ERC screwing over Sale with the fixtures. Surely the Cardiff match could have been scheduled for the Sunday instead of the Friday, seems that Sky are to blame for this one.

    You're forgetting Bluemoon, the result doesn't do Sale's chances much good either!

    It looks like your opponents also chose to rest players, the Beeb reckoned Quins rested Monye, Care and Easter. It's part and parcel of the game nowadays, as there are so many games teams with limited resources will pick their battles. How does this differ from the resting of Lions players over the first few rounds of the domestic comps?

    The Quins players were rested because of the agreement with the EPS, Sale rested their players because of the quick turnaround for the Cardiff Blues match, didn't see anything about it being the same reason as Quins.

    The EPS agreements don't force the players to be rested for that game, Quins chose to rest them for it, what's the difference? The fact that Tait and Sheridan didn't play in France also means we are fulfilling our side of the EPS agreement for them.
