How great is it to have rugby back again?
Sure the game was horrendously one-sided, the crowd sparse, and the context of the fixture rendering the final result effectively meaningless, but I genuinely can't think of a better way to spend my Saturday afternoons than in Sale's very own cookie cutter stadium watching the North-West's sole Premiership side.
And this Saturday afternoon was especially enjoyable. Sale ran in six tries (Fihaki, Mujati, Beaumont, Neild, Flynn and Haley) in a surprisingly dominant display over a very poor Leicester side that never once threatened making it anything other than a routine victory for the Sharks in their first home game of the season.
Sale have now recorded victories in both of their first two Kings Of The North fixtures and are realistically only one further win away from being crowned champions of this inaugural competition. Hey at least it's some silverware right?
