Macleod eyeing up Sale landmark

Date published: July 28 2015

Sale Sharks utility back Nick Macleod is excited about the prospect of bringing up 150 games for the club this season.

Macleod has spent the off-season stranded on 149 as he prepares for another season with the Premiership side.

The 32-year-old has been with Sale since 2008 when he joined from Cardiff Blues and is enjoying his new role as one of the senior players at the club. 

"It will be good to have a big number of games against my name. This is my eighth year here at the Sharks, which is a decent stretch," Macleod told the Sale website.

"I am probably a senior player now and it's good that we have some experience in the building.

"There are plenty of other senior players around with Dan Braid and Dave Seymour so the youngsters know they can come to us.

"Plus, there are some of the younger players who have played a few seasons for club. He may be 22, but Ross Harrison is on 97 appearances for the club which is pretty crazy!

"All the guys have their heads screwed on, and there is a great feeling of togetherness here."
