Full Time: Worcester Warriors 24 - Sale Sharks 18

Good win for the Warriors at home and they move pass Sale on the log to 6th place


Sale are really all over the place this season =/
Two losses to (probably) the worst teams in the GP, one a hammering at home,
But then a win against leicester (though that was just a kicking match in the end)
Not fancying our chances for anything this year =( (as in, get into the playoffs for GP and past the groups for HC)

Well if they can't achieve that feat with the likes of Chabal, McAlister, Lamont et al, what hope have they minus those names?


Just watched the highlights on ITV and it's disappointing we didn't get a win as we did actually play really well,
Cueto had a blinder, very good in defence, and set up tait for his try,
Tait also had a great match as well, as did chris jones, and wigglesworth n all
It's a shame we're doing so poorly when we've got some great talent
Having said that, worcester did play very well as well, couple of missed chances (their 10 diving over the try line, but missing the ball), but it could have easily gone our way (very nearly got a try 3mins from end, brought down about 2m from the try line and turned over) but thems the breaks.
