UKFast - supporting the Sharks again this season
Article date: Wed, 17 Aug 2005 17:59 GMT
September 2nd sees the start of a new season at Edgeley Park for the Sharks Premiership side. UKFast are, as ever, looking forward to taking clients new and old to the home games and cheering on their very own number 10 – Charlie Hodgson
Last season two European trophies returned to the North West. Liverpool may have taken the lion's share of the exposure, but Sale became champions of Europe too by beating French team Pau to the European Challenge Cup. Once again Charlie Hodgson was instrumental, scoring 17 of the teams 27 points and taking the man of the match champagne.
At the club's Press Day on Monday Charlie told UKFast that the boys intended to improve by one or two places this year. We reckon two would be great! He reported that after an excellent warm up week in France the squad's seven new signing were all gelling well into the team.
Charlie spoke candidly about his summer and being back in the North West. “It's been a long summer and I've hardly slept in my own bed. It really is great to be home and I can't wait for the season to start.”
Of the British and Irish Lion's tour he was upbeat. “New Zealand was of course a brilliant experience despite getting knocked out in the last midweek warm up game. I'll keep at my game and the Lions are only four years away, so hopefully, I'll be ready for a full tour then.”
