Sharks Attacked

Well done to Steve Diamond and Sale for fielding a starting XV consisting of entirely English-qualified players against Quins at the weekend.

Who gives a hoot if their primary motivation was to secure £200,000 in extra funding from the RFU. Their young, hungry, English players were arguably more competitive than any "first choice" Sale XV might have been and I wish more clubs would follow suit.

Integrity of the league? Bollocks.

Sale should be applauded, not criticised. Messrs Cockerill and Griffiths take note.

Although I am a Sale supporter I totally agree with this post and bear in mind, there may have been a couple of non-first team players included but their skill level was very good.

bit harsh to attack cockerel as tigers have produced or developed more England players over the last 15/20 years than any other club by miles

No problem with Cockerill other than the fact he was critical of Sale's selection...
