View from the Birtles: Sale 21 Harlequins 31 [AP15s]

Despite the score, I see continued signs of improvement in the Sale Sharks women’s team. Sale were definitely the better team in the first half and it was only later on, into the second half, that Quins’ greater experience started to show as they took the game away from Sale with some well-worked tries.

Even so, Sale never gave up and their third try with the last play of the game was no consolation prize but a genuine reward for hard work and never giving up.

They deserve the opportunity to continue their progress into next season.
