No rest for Sale Sharks: Head coach warns players not to drop off after limp Harlequins display

By Alan Ross

Sale Sharks head coach Bryan Redpath has called on the club to retain the high standards that have served them well this season after defeat against Harlequins on the weekend.

A disappointing performance from Sale allowed Quins, who had not won in four matches, to run out 24-3 winners at the Stoop.

Redpath knows the Sharks must put in a good performance when they welcome Exeter Chiefs to the AJ Bell Stadium on Friday.

“We have fought hard at home this year so we want to keep that going and not drop off any standards,” Redpath told the Sale website.

“No rest, we have got Exeter on Friday night so we have to get our minds firmly on that. We have to accept today it wasn’t good enough and we got beaten.”

Harlequins made light of their depleted squad, owing to international call ups and injuries, by running in two tries against Sale.

“It’s disappointing. We made too many errors to compete against a top four side,” Redpath said.

“We did not turn up in the right frame of mind. I don’t think it was a lack of effort.”

Ahead of the match this week Sale are holding a fan’s open evening on Wednesday October 30 at the AJ Bell Stadium from 18:30 to 20:30.

Both players and coaches will be present with fans having the opportunity to visit the dressing rooms and club shop.
