Sale Sharks Inspires Cusiter To Pursue His Dream

Every team has its share of long time players.

If you look at the team of Sale Sharks, some of its players think that it is time to call it quits.

The scrum half of Scotland and Lions would be quitting the game and looking to start a business in making whisky. This season the team performed in a limited manner as Peter Stringer was not in full form. On the other hand, Cusiter announced that he would be retiring from the game. He is thirty three years of age. He has now planned to quit the game and start off an alcohol retail entrepreneurial initiative in Los Angeles.

SALES BEAT HARLEQUINS

Sale Rugby Union team won 21-17 over Harlequins thanks to an impressive second-half performance from Kyle Tonetti. George Lowe put Quins ahead inside five minutes before Nick Evans converted.

Nick Macleod's two penalties put Sale within a point but a penalty and converted Jordan Turner-Hall try gave Quins an 11-point half-time lead. Tomas Vallejos Cinalli's sin-binning with 10 minutes left led to Mark Cueto's try, followed by Tonetti's score and five points from Macleod.

SALE SECURE WIN

Sale secured a win over Newcastle by defeating them 35-18. After an early penalty exchange Falcons flanker Brent Wilson scored from a forwards move off a five-metre scrum.

Karena Whihongi hit back for Sale before Macleod's kick was gathered by Tom Brady to cross in the corner.

After the break Macleod added more points with the boot before Chris Leck's sin-binning let Wilson in again.

Sale started much the brighter and had points on the board through Macleod's boot after just 90 seconds as referee Dean Richards proved a harsh judge of any handling on the ground.

SALE LOOK FOR MAJOR GAME

Sale owner Brian Kennedy has revealed the club are looking to emulate Harlequins and Saracens' success by moving a showpiece home fixture to a ‘major’ ground in the North West, following the international game's lead - England Rugby Hospitality made thousands from a recent showpiece match.

And the multi-millionaire Cheshire businessman has also confirmed that, for now, Sale will be sticking with Friday nights when they stage their home fixtures at Edegely Park next season.
