Haley confident Sale will climb

Date published: January 3 2017

Sale full-back Mike Haley is adamant that his team will bounce back after their latest Premiership defeat to Bristol over the weekend.

The 24-23 loss at the AJ Bell Stadium sees Sale sitting five points ahead of Worcester and a further two in front of Bristol at the basement.

Next up for Sale is a match at Harlequins and Haley insists they won’t be worried about what’s below them when they run out at the Stoop.

“We’re very much looking forward. We’re just looking for that win, and once we get that then it will click,” the full-back told Sale‘s website.

“We played some really good rugby but at the end of the day we still lost. It’s been the same story every week so it’s massively frustrating.”

He added on their most recent defeat: “We just have to assess this game and do what we usually do.

“We need to get in to the stride of things in the week, prepare as we would normally do, but we really need to come out fighting harder than ever.”
