Date published: August 15 2016

Sale full-back Dan Mugford was delighted with his debut performance wearing a Sharks shirt in their first pre-season friendly of the season.

Steve Diamond's side won 81-0 against Fylde on Saturday, with new signing Mugford impressing at full-back during the opening 40 minutes.

He was delighted to make his bow and applauded the victory as the Sharks now prepare to face off with Edinburgh at Heywood Road on Friday.

"It's been a tough pre-season and I was absolutely buzzing to get on the field and put the Sharks shirt on for the first time," he told Sale's official website following the impressive triumph. "I thought we did well."

"Beforehand we wanted to go through the shapes we've been working on and be accurate and I think the boys did that and we worked well together.

"We're going to look at the video, and see where we can improve but the boys looked sharp and were enthusiastic heading into the game against Fylde, so we need to keep that up."
